December 10th, 2019

Brothers,
Here is some information that Matt Stein found on Facebook about the service for our brother Neal Newhouse:
Neal William Newhouse
July 24, 1940 – December 07, 2019. 
Neal William Newhouse went to be with Jesus peacefully. A celebration of his life is being held at Wake Forest Christian Church, 701 S. Main Street, Wake Forest, NC on Friday, December 13th at 1:00PM. Afterwards, please come back to our home that Neal loved so much at 328 N. Main Street. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Care Fund of Wake Forest Christian Church, PO Box 147, Wake Forest, NC 27588.
Fraternally in Christ,

Worthy Brothers,

Raffle ticket season is now open! Tickets are $5 each and $2.50 of each
ticket sold comes back to our council to support our charitable
activities. This is a great way to raise funds for both the state and our
council.

First prize is $5000 cash, second prize is $4000 cash, 3rd/4th prize is
$500 cash each, 5th/6th prize is $400 cash each and 7th prize is $200
cash. Ticket sales go through March 2020 and the drawing is May 2, 2020.

* NEW this year -* we are offering a *$25 gift card* to one lucky winner
at our April business meeting – see below for details.

We’ve split up the roster based on member last names to spread the load
across the co-chairs but feel free to get your tickets from any co-chair.
Thanks to Mike and Brien for stepping up! *Please contact a co-chair to
get your tickets:*

– * Member last names A-G: Mike Pughes*
– * Member last names H-P: Brien McGuire*
– * Member last names Q-Z: Dave Rogers*

*A couple changes for this year:*
1. We will deposit checks from raffle ticket sales more frequently to
ensure timely clearing of checks.
2. As mentioned above, in order to encourage ticket sales we are offering
a $25 gift card to one lucky winner at our April 2020 business meeting.
From all the tickets sold by our council we will randomly select one
ticket. If the buyer of that ticket is a brother Knight from our council
they will win the gift card. If the buyer is not a Knight from our council
then the seller listed on the ticket will win the gift card – if the seller
field is blank on the ticket then the raffle co-chair who distributed the
ticket will win the gift card. You do not need to be present at the April
business meeting to win.

Vivat Jesus!

Fw: Spanish Knighthood Degree

November 28th, 2019

    My fellow Grand Knights and Brothers all, I hope this email finds you well!  I’m writing to follow-up on a letter I hope most, if not all of you received, regarding my council hosting a 3rd degree coming up on December 7th.  As of today’s date we have only confirmed 5 candidates and we need your help filling out the attendance at this degree!  This is a rare opportunity for any of your Spanish-speaking Knights to achieve full Knighthood in Spanish!  As those of you who have hosted a 3rd or 4th degree before, these are very large undertakings, both in terms of manpower and the amount of funds council spend.  Currently, only have 5 candidates, this is set to be a large loss for us, and the State.

    As we are a little shy of two weeks out from this degree we are in great need of your support.  I ask you, purge your council rolls, work with your FS’s, see if there are gentleman from your council in need of a 3rd degree!  My membership director, Brother Richard Horton, is Cc’d above and is my point of contact for this event, and he and/or his assistant may be following up this email with a phone call, he may have already done so.  Or, if you have candidates you wish to confirm attendance, please feel free to email him directly.  Thank you for your time, Brothers!  I hope to be able to see you in the coming weeks!

Saturday events – 11/30

November 27th, 2019

Worthy Brothers,

Just letting you know that the Brown Bag event this Saturday is cancelled
due to the lack of food we got from the food bank today: cereal only.

However, there will be plenty of food to sort out for operation harvest and
all surplus food will be delivered to the housing project, where brown bag
sandwiches are delivered. If you can help us out for operation harvest
that would be great! Thanks!
