CHILLIWACK KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS
Gerry Cranley Grand Knight, Council 3478
Dear Brothers and Families:     Dear Brothers and Families of Council 3478. It’s hard to believe how fast September has come and gone. I hope that everyone is continuing to adapt and survive through this historic pandemic. September brought the beginning of the 59th Annual Charity Appeal Draw. You may have seen the Poster already in the Parish Bulletin or one of the several posters displayed in St Mary’s Church. The Knights of Columbus has unveiled an all new online Charity Appeal Draw for 2020-21. Yes all tickets are sold online. Our awesome Charity Appeal Committee led by our Chairman BK Peter Prost have been working very hard to make the transition from our traditional Charity Appeal Draw process to the current online version. State has provided all Councils with their very own link to purchase tickets which is displayed on the posters. Our Committee has incorporated a QR code that makes it even easier to purchase tickets. The QR code has been added to the poster. You can simply scan the QR code with your device to purchase tickets. Several business card sized posters with QR code on the back have arrived and will be distributed to all Members immediately. The Committee is asking all BK’s and family to pass out these cards to all friends, family members and work mates. Prizes are all cash. First prize is $100,000.00 and 2nd prize is $50,000.00! The biggest highlight coming up in October will be the Beatification of Fr. Michael McGivney on Saturday October 31st. It will be televised live on EWTN and some other Networks. Coming up in November we will be holding our Annual Memorial Mass. Please watch for updates on that as planning will be getting under way very soon. Volunteers will be required to help with planning and organizing. If you would like to volunteer please contact myself or BK Larry Whyte. As I mentioned last Newsletter that Council is planning on a full schedule of Faith in Action Programs. Council will have to be creative to carry out all of our Programs safely. Please join us to make this happen. Volunteers are needed. I will ask Brother Peter to include the Faith in Action Schedule in this edition of the Newsletter. Please look it over and let us know what Program (s) you may be interested in volunteering your talents. Please join us at the next General Meeting online on Tuesday October 20th at 7:30 pm. If you did not receive an invitation for the September General Meeting, please send an email to Brother Andrew Godbout (Andrew.godbout@kofc.org) and request an invitation.
