FAITH, FAMILY AND BROTHERHOOD
February is here, this means Valentine's Day. The legend contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. When Emperor Claudius ll decided that single men made better soldier than those with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men. Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine's actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death. On the 14th of February we take our wives or our girlfriends and take them to fancy dinners and give them flowers or other gifts. Please see the flyer in the newsletter for our Council's Valentine's Day Dinner/Dance.
Please continue to support our membership recruitment efforts. It is very important for our Council to recruit new members.
If you have any comments or concerns please contact myself or any officer. God Bless you all!
We have some terrific events planned for February. The Red Cross is reporting a severe shortage of blood in the area after the Holidays. We need your help. Please consider donating blood on February 4 at the knight's hall. You can go to the front page of our website, enter your zip code then search for February 4 and the Knights of Columbus Blood Drive.
For those that like to party, we have the Valentine’s Dinner Dance on February 11. I look forward to seeing you at the dance.
