   Since 1972, Knights of Columbus councils have sponsored the K of C International Free Throw Championship for boys and girls between the ages of 9 and 14.

   Fr. Baker Council #2243 will be participating as a sponsor for this event! The contests will take place at gymnasium of Our Lady of Victory Elementary School on Saturday, January 19, 2019 beginning at 10 AM.

   The championship is set up to have the contestants compete within their own gender and age group. All competition starts at the local (council) level. Winners move on to the district, regional, and state and international levels. Boys & girls who have not participated in the free throw contest sponsored by other area councils are invited to participate in this event.

   Volunteers will help with registering the participants, scoring contest participants, and other on-court tasks. Volunteers must arrive by 9AM. Those interested in helping out can call John Radwan or Bob Meegan for details.


BINGO is played every Wednesday at the council hall beginning at 12:45 PM!
