We look forward to a great turn out for the 2nd Annual Council 11044 Family Pitch-In Picnic being held on:

 

Saturday, September 16th at 3:00 pm at Cool Creek Park - Shelter C

 

Last year approximately 30 Knights, Ladies, and children enjoyed a fun and relaxing afternoon with great food and games for both adults and children.

 

The Council provides and cooks all of the meat - hamburgers, bratwursts, and hot dogs, as well as supplies the buns, condiments, and dinnerware.

 

Those attending are asked to bring drinks for themselves, lawn chairs, games, and a side and/or dessert to share.

 

Please download and print the flyer at the top of this article for directions to Shelter C.

Form 100 PDF

The Form 100 application for new members of the Knights of Columbus is now available in a PDF form that you can fill in online and print for signature by the potential new member and the "sponsor".

Please submit requests 7 days in advance of the Business Meeting

As agreed by the Officers and council members, it is a new requirement that any member who wishes to have time on the agenda for the Business Meeting to discuss a topic or make an announcement, must submit a request to the Grand Knight seven (7) days in advance of the Business Meeting.  Please email the Grand Knight at davidpauley@pauley.com.

 

This new requirement has been put in place in order to satisfy the following objectives/desires for our Business Meetings:

  1. Be focused primarily on our upcoming activities and events in the next 60 days – to provide understanding well in advance of the events; generate excitement; and improve involvement.
  2. Have our meetings run efficiently and effectively – focused on the “business” of the council.
  3. Not have the Grand Knight, or Officers, or members “surprised” or “caught off guard” by topics/issues raised by speakers, thus causing disruption/delays in the meeting; or, as in the past, arguments/ill will among members - not befitting the brotherhood we wish to exemplify and enjoy with one another. 

All members continue to be encouraged to share their opinions and ideas at each meeting.  We need this to occur in order to have more opportunity for improvement.

 

Please note:  Members who wish to share information with the council outside of the scope of the "upcoming events in the next 60 days" can be submitted to one of the Officers for communication to the members via email.

 

Thank you for your cooperation!
