Council Programs

Director: Open Position

Goals for this fraternal year

    As a fraternal organization, the Knights of Columbus offers not only the opportunity for its member to serve others, but also to join together in other activities ranging from athletic activities, to cultural programs, to social events. Along with these fraternal activities are the programs councils regularly run to assist those of their members and their families who are in need. Additionally, councils should work to keep their members informed on current council initiatives and to let the parish and community know about the good works of the Order.

 

Getting Involved

    Program directors do a terrific job in developing and bringing quality programs to our members and parishioners. But they can't do it alone. If you have any ideas for future programs/events or would like to help in some capacity, please contact the Council Director.

Pungo Strawberry Festive Parking Project

Chairman: Ted Quinter
    It is spring and time to get ready for our biggest fund raising activity of the year - the 34th Annual Pungo Strawberry Festival. We have again contracted with the festival organizers to park cars in the southwest quadrant of Pungo, on the fields at the VB Mounted Police facility, on Saturday May 27 and Sunday May 28.

    We have re-organized the crews based on our first two years experience to make them a little smaller, hopefully more efficient, and adjusted in size for the expected fluctuations in traffic volume. We're planning on opening a little later and closing a little earlier; as a result we have been able to shorten the shifts.

    Our experience the first two years taught us that women are great at taking money at the toll plaza; we would really like to fill all the money taker slots with the help of our ladies and perhaps some junior/senior high school young ladies. We also learned it can be a family activity together on a holiday weekend in which the high school aged kids learn first hand about volunteer service. Most important jobs we need filled are the 6 Shift Leaders and the 6 Parking Field Leaders; these must be filled by adult men members.

    Attached are two PDF files.
    1. The first contains descriptions of the job positions we are using this year.   Parking Project Job Description
    2. The second has the sign-up sheet for volunteers to staff the project this year.    Parking Project Sign-Up Sheets


    Review both documents, choose your position, your day, and your time to volunteer. Then email your choices to chairman Your name will be added to the roster (if your chosen spot is still available). You will then receicve an email reply confirming your schedule. It is first come, first served to fill the slots.

    All Brothers must seriously consider giving some time from your Memorial Day holiday weekend to ensure the financial success of the Council in the coming year. If we do this well, with enough help, no one has to do extra. There is potential to here raise $10,000 in just two days with which to fund our many charitable activities for the coming fraternal year.
    Please email your schedule request as soon as possible.
    Thanks in advance for your generous support of this most important Council project.

    Fraternal Regards, Ted Quinter, PGK
