         ST. PATRICK'S DAY DINNER DANCE - A BIG GREEN HIT     

       On March 14, 2015 The Knights of Columbus had their annual St. Patrick's Day Dinner Dance and it was a sea of GREEN.  The event was held at St. Patrick's Parish Hall, starting at 6:00 pm.  The bill of fair will consisted  of naturally, corned beef, cabbage, white potatoes, carrots, and Irish soda bread.  For desert there were two Knights of Columbus sheet cakes.  A full cash bar was be available, with Dick McCarthy as bartender.  Irish and Rock N' Roll music music was provided by Bill's Entertainment.  The cost for the event was only $15.00 per person.  There were roughly 150 people in attendance  Not exactly a "pot of gold", but there was a raffle drawing for a nice chuck of change, and that's "no blarney".   There was also a drawing for an authentic  home made Irish quilt.  Kudos need to go out to all the brothers and some of their wives for devoting their time and efforts to make the event a rousing success.  A special vote of thanks must go to Grand Knight Bob Gibbia for the work he did, above and beyond the call of duty.

Why we become Knights

Becoming a Knight of Columbus can transform your life. As a Knight, you have the opportunity to support your parish, give back to your community, grow in your faith and gain exclusive access to our top-rated insurance program to protect your family.

These are just some of the reasons why we become a Knight.

We are a band of brothers, a network of men in communities around the world dedicated to doing good in the service of God and our neighbor.

Charity is the first principle of the Knights of Columbus. Knights are men who get things done. We volunteer our time to serve our councils, parishes and our communities. Unity and Fraternity are the second and third principles of the Knights of Columbus. The Knights of Columbus was founded so that men could work together to serve their parishes and communities, protect the well being of their Catholic families, and support each other in faith and in many other ways along life’s journey. The Knights of Columbus offers its members the opportunity to grow in their faith through living the example of a charity that evangelizes and personifying what it means to be a Catholic gentleman through the practicing of good works.

The Knights of Columbus is not just a fraternity in name. It is a brotherhood of Catholic men who each play a part in improving the world around them, one community at a time. They stand together in faith, dedicated to uphold the principles they cherish while lending their support and strength to parish, home and fellow Knight.

Make a stand among them, and you can discover how easy it is to make a difference in your life and that of others.
