Rosary Saturday October 13th “America Needs Fatima”

Friday, October 12th, 2018

Worthy Brother Knights,

This Saturday October 13th at 12 Noon there will be a Rosary at the Wake Forest Town Hall Square. The rosary on Saturday is sponsored by “America Needs Fatima”. We celebrate the 101st anniversary of the Fatima’s fifth apparition. The October 1917 Fatima apparition gave the miracle of the sun witnessed by thousands.

State Raffle

Monday, October 8th, 2018

Worthy Brothers,
We are in need of a few brothers to help our Brother Dave Rogers co-chair the state raffle this year.  Last year’s co-chairs are taking a year off so we need 3-4 new guys to fill their shoes.  I’d like to have the co-chairs in place by early November.
The job is pretty easy – Dave gives you the raffle tickets along with contact information (email/phone) for about 50 guys on the roster and you contact them to take some tickets to buy or sell.  You distribute and then collect the tickets/money and then get it back to Dave by March.
  The best part?  Tickets are $5 each and our council keeps half of each ticket sold which benefits the charities and organizations our council supports.
  This is also a great way to meet other brothers in the council.  Please let Dave or me know if you have any questions.
Vivat Jesus!
