2017 Fraternal Survey Input Request

Brother Knights,


We are required to submit our annual Fraternal Activity Survey at the end of January 2018.  Included in your dues notice is the Knights of Columbus Survey of Fraternal Activity.  It will greatly assist me if you can return the form to me OR send me a quick e-mail with your estimated volunteer hours during calendar year 2017.  Hours do not need to be just a Knights of Columbus specific events/activities.  For example, if you helped with the Spring Festival in ANY capacity (not just with the KofC Lemonade Slushie Booth), those hours are voluntary and they should be included.  Additionally, if any of your family members helped at one of our Council activities, those hours count as well.


Please take a few minutes, think back over all of 2017 and try to recall all of the Council/other volunteer activities you supported and helped with.  If possible, try to categorize them into one of the following groups: Church; Community; Youth Activities; Culture of Life; Food Drives; Habitat for Humanity Projects; Special Olympics; and Supporting Sick/Disabled Council Members & their families.  Preparation time (e.g. gathering supplies, for a Council activity) should also be included.


If you visited the sick or a bereaved family/friend, please include the number of visits.  If you donated blood, please let us know how many donations.


It has been a fantastic year for our Council here at Holy Face Church and our service hours should reflect this surge in service.  Please reply NLT January 10, 2018 so we have time to consolidate all of the inputs.


Thank you all & have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!



Steven Cryan
