UKNIGHT MARKET CENTER ADVERTISING OPPORTUNITIES !

CLICK HERE TO SEE MORE DETAILS AND INFORMATION !

The UKnight Market Center is a business directory for member-owned and member-recommended businesses to advertise their products and services on our Council's website.  The advertisements are visible to both Council members as well as the entire general public visiting our website.  And best of all - 50% of the fees paid to place an ad go directly to our Council #12387 to help our many charities and worthy causes!  Don't delay - place an ad today, or recommend a business that you know!

Volunteer to Mentor a New Member !

Our Council's membership and recruitment efforts are in high gear, and we're inviting interested existing members to serve as Mentors for our new Brother Knights.  This program and your role are designed to get our New Members active and engaged in our Council activities right after their First Degree Ceremony.  Our Council is vibrant and energetic, with a host of service programs and opportunities that are certain to appeal to our new Brother Knights.  Contact our Deputy Grand Knight to volunteer in this important effort!

SCRIP Table Volunteers Still Needed

CLICK HERE to see a partial list of SCRIP cards in-stock !

Volunteer Knights are still needed to work the SCRIP table at all weekend Masses.  By selling SCRIP cards to fellow parishoners, funds are raised that are split 50/50 between the Knights and SEAS.  Typically the Knights raise over $4,000 from our share of this simple and easy funraiser!

 

This is one of the easiest yet least time-consuming ways you can help your Council!  All it takes is a couple of hours, every few weeks, at whatever normal weekend Mass you typically attend.  Just man the table and sell before Mass, then attend Mass, and then sell for a little while after, and you're done!

 

Please consider volunteering for this simple role which takes minimal investment of time, but would be a big help to our Council!  Contact Council Treasurer Tom Graham to signup!
