Council Announcements

Brother Knights and Sir Knights of Msgr. Wells Council:  This is a reminder regarding some of the upcoming important Council events and notices of events happening around us. . . . .


+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +

The Knights of Columbus organization ushers in each year with some very important instructions in the form of a series of Program Seminars throughout the State.  This year the two closests Seminars are at the Sacred Heart Council #2577 at 6111 Columbian Way, Bowie, MD on July 23 and at Our Lady of Good Counsel High School, 17301 Old Vic Blvd., Olney MD 20832 on August 13.  Both begin at 7:30 but arrive early for registration and other information.  Any Council member involved in any of the Council activities such as Raffle Ticket Sales, Tootsie Roll collections, Keep Christ in Christmas Cards, etc. should make it a point to attend one of these seminars.  

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +

Arcola Ave. was cleaned up on Saturday June 30.  This Council effort was led by Chris Farrell.  Please support Chris at the next cleanup on August 25.  Meet him after the 9:00AM Mass on the corner of Kemp Mill and Arcola.  We are hoping for a great turnout and a photo for the Council newsletter and a Montgomery County newsletter – The Paperless Airplane as well.

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +

Badge order – As we enter the new Fraternal Year I will be ordering badges for the new officers.  A draft order is attached.  Badges are not ordered for officers who will continue in the same position.  If you are a “new” officer and don’t see your name on a draft badge, let me know.  If you are not an officer but would like a “member” badge, please let me know.  I have received one correction.  Please look over the badge order and if you see any errors let me know right away.

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +

Shirt order – If you are interested in ordering a polo shirt with the Knights Logo and our Council number, please contact Craig Jones by email at (or just reply to all from this email).  I have attached a photo and size information to help you determine which shirt to order.  Cost will be about $35/shirt.

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +

Thank you for all your help throughout the year with all the breakfast setup, preparation, serving and cleanup.  There will be no breakfast in July or August but we expect to resume our Community Sunday breakfast on September 9.

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +

Formation or Second Degree @ St. Andrew’s - Msgr. Wells Council #13008 sponsored a Formation Degree on Wednesday June 27.  Past GK Wilfrid Amisial reported that Chris McKneely, Baguima Stanislas Bayala and Pedro David Matias from Council 13008 and also Michael Ford from Council 5567 advanced to the Second Degree of Knighthood.  Please extend your congratulations to these gentlemen when you see them.

  I don’t believe the degree schedule for the coming year has been posted.  As soon as I find out when Second and Third Degrees are scheduled I will add those that are relatively nearby to our calendar. 

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +

The following is a message concerning a project that Council 13008 has been asked to support.  Due to construction delays that are no fault of the scouts, this project has been postponed and will not take place on July 7 & 8.  Please be ready to help out when a new date is announced.  Thank You.

Hello, My name is Stephen White from troop 772 and I am doing my eagle project on July 7th from 9 am - 4 pm and July 8th from 9 am - 2 pm. This project involves doing landscaping work around the new mobile classrooms behind the ELC. This project is sponsored by your council of the Knights of Columbus. If you are able to help the scouts on either or both days, it would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you very much for your time.

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +

  Upcoming birthdays to celebrate are:  Deacon S. Mike Bond and Gerard Sejismundo on July 10; Jay M. Dhanaraj on July 17; Harry J. Dudley on July 18;  Marvin J. Schuttloffel on July 19; Michael F. Lewis on July 20; Harry Davis on July 24; Robert Cunningham and Pierre Fabien on July 25; Robert Cowley on July 27. Please wish them a Happy Birthday.
