The following are items of general interest to the members of Council 13467.
Knights Nite Out
Chairman: John Fazio
As discussed in our previous business meetings, we will be "floating" the day of the night out. This change was initiated to offer more flexible dates enabling more Knights and their families a chance to attend. An annoiuncement will be made at each business meeting.
As usual, we will post the date, time and location of the gathering here as well as the map for those who may be unfamiliar with the establishment. And don't forget to RSVP the coordinator that you plan to attend how many guests you have. He needs an accurate count to pass on to our host ensuring everyone is adequately served.

Poor Clares Project
Posted by: Advocate: Patrick Mayette
- On February 9, 2019, we provided much needed support for the Poor Claires work project. Twenty-one Brothers participated by cutting pine trees, diseased trees and stumps. They cleared over 275 yards of trails and paths, refurbished a special hand carved sign, repaired a light pole, 4 wheelbarrows, cart, bell and chain saw. Overall, a very successful trip.
Plans are being prepared for our next two visits to assist the Poor Clares. The first will be a trip in January or February to paint some of their rooms. The rooms are sparsely furnished, so it will be a simple matter of pushing the furniture to the middle and getting the painting done.
The second will be a trip in April or May for an outside spring clean-up. More details will come out as far as tools and equipment needed, but if you have a yard you can imagine the time of work needed.
Please email the Worthy Advocate
with the weekends in January/February you are able to help paint and/or the weekends in April/May you are able to assist with the outside work. He will then pick the weekends to drive up based on the availability of Knights to assist.
Thanks in advance for your assistance in helping out with this important effort of charity!
