I appreciate those of you who have let me know your email address. With each new address, our cost to send out the monthly newsletter goes down – Thank You!

DUES & RAFFLE TICKETS:
Statements for 2017 are included with this newsletter. Dues are $20 and should be mailed to Pat Earley at 1453 County Road GG, New Richmond. Better yet, you can pay your dues and receive your 2017 membership card at the December meeting. PKD (Penny a Knight a Day) supports Catholic Schools throughout the Diocese, including St. Mary’s. To support PKD, include an extra $ 3.65 with your dues.
Also enclosed are 5 state charity raffle tickets. This annual raffle supports charity needs in Wisconsin and locally. Approximately $2,000 annually has been returned to our own charity fund for many years, the balance of the proceeds help those in Wisconsin who suffer fires, illness, disability, and also support vocations. Contact Pat Earley for more tickets, and you can return stubs and money with your dues if you wish.
Food Drive: Ed Zimmerman can always use help on the 2nd Monday of each month, 11:30 a.m. at Wal-Mart (southwest end of the building) to help load food and deliver it to the food shelf.
5th Sunday: The next one will be January 29th.
Work camp has asked if they could hold a breakfast that day. We agreed to let them so we will not need any knights to help at coffee and donuts. We will support them by suppling bakery goods or whatever they may need.
Insurance: If you have any questions about Knights of Columbus Insurance, please contact our field agent! Shawn.Fox@kofc.org 651-324-1209
Keep them in your prayers: Brother Knights Terry Donahue and Pat Cernohous.
