Knights News

Good Evening,

Yeah, I know, Lent just started.  We’re looking out to the next big event.  That’s the M.I. Drive. This campaign, often referred to as the “Tootsie Roll Drive” is really a “Campaign for People with Intellectual Disabilities” The nickname is due to the nature of the fundraiser, in which Knights distribute candy bars, very often specially marked Tootsie Rolls in exchange for donations used to support programs geared to improve the Quality of Life for people with Disabilities, in particular, Special Olympics. So please, if you happen to see our Men & Women Members and Volunteers out on Columbus Day Weekend please find it in your hearts to donate.

And that brings me to YOUR part!  We’re looking for a few guys to take 2 hours shifts during the weekend.  If you can help us out and sign up, that would be very wonderful,  The good news is, we’re no longer on the roadways.  We parked Dick Waligore at 31and Van Dyke for years and he survived – amazingly!  If Mr. Waligore can dodge traffic all those years, you’ll be able to make a tremendous impact at a safe retail environment.  Please have a look at the spots available – CLICK HERE.

We’ve been discussing the effort to help with some basic remodeling of CPC.  Gary has the dates, March 10 and 11th.  He needs 10 guys per day.  If we could get 2 guys from each Council in the District, that would be ideal.  The sign-up is here – LINK

The plans are below.
