Beer Pairing Dinner Update

Brother Knights

As a prelude to last night’s business meeting, we held an initial planning meeting to discuss the upcoming annual Beer Pairing Dinner to benefit the Knights ultrasound program. The date for the event is April 11th and tickets will go on sale starting Sunday March 1st. Tickets will be $45 (same as last year) and attendance will be limited to 100 people, so we expect it to fill up fast! Last year’s dinner was a great success and as a result Council 9597 was able to contribute $3700 to the ultrasound program. This year we will be supported by Our Lady of Fatima’s Respect Life committee in supplying some of the program material and speakers.

With the Knights in attendance last evening, we discussed the various roles and tasks that need to be addressed and we made good progress.

Request for Volunteers This Sunday – Free Throw Contest

Brother knights,

In support of the free throw contest this coming Sunday, January 25, we need a few volunteers.  Here’s what we’ll need help with:
  • Working the registration table for contestants as they arrive (2)
  • Judging each competitor as they shoot (2)
  • Rebounders (4+)

Set up will start at 1230-1, while competitors are arriving.  The competition will start at 130pm.  Set up entails getting the registration table up and organized, marking the closer free throw line for the younger shooters, and helping arrange the age groups.

Please, if you are available, come to help and support this fun event!
