From our New Financial Agent, PGK Andrew Godbout As a member of the Knights of Columbus since 2011, I enjoyed serving my home council (3478) as a Recorder, Chancellor, Deputy Grand Knight and eventually 3 years as Grand Knight. Since 2017 I have serviced the Metro- Vancouver area as a Knights of Columbus Field I am at your service; please do not hesitate in giving me a call or email if you have any questions or concerns at 604-819-7974 or andrew.godbout@kofc.org. Thank you and God bless” Agent and I am excited to now be able to return to the Fraser Valley and serve as your Field Agent, building relationships with people in the communities that I call home. As a result of the current need for social distancing, my plan is to reach out to the membership via email and meet by phone or over video/voice call to field any questions the membership may have.
 I'm sure hope everyone is holding up as we are hopefully heading down the home stretch with vaccines rolling out. Hoping by summer no masks "optimistic maybe". Feb 2 Groundhog Day. Feels to me like an early Spring sunshine & all. So folks can get out a little, like walks & gardening and yard work or not? Or just call a brother Knight you haven't spoke to in a while?? Otherwise stay in touch, join a program when we can roll them out. Ask to join a Knights virtual meeting. Stay informed. God bless

RSVP RECYCLABLE FUNDRAISER UPDATE DGK Jean Godbout Last year was our first year with our "Encorp Return it Accounts" at Sardis and Chilliwack locations. This account is sponsoring Seminarians through the diocese from our Council 3478. Get involved by calling 604-792 -1627. I can give more info or maybe set you up for pick up of your returns. We could even arrange periodic pickups from a building or institution. YOU can make a difference big or small, it all goes to Charity. Council wishes to thank all the Knights and family members who with neighbours as well, helped us build close to $800 in 2020. We believe in 2021 that we can surpass that number as more Knights get involved. I understand we will use $500 of these funds from year end as well as $500 from 3478's commitment which equals $1000 and it's only January. Excellent work gentlemen. This will place us us halfway to a rebate from State of $400. Acct updates as of Jan. 15: Encorp Express Acct Team Git'er Done (Sardis) Team Johnny Six-Pack (Chilliwack) Mid Jan.15 Total
