WHAT’S UP @ 6855 – March 15 to 22

Tomorrow evening is our Knights vs LifeTeen Volleyball Challenge.  We need lots of players and cheering fans to take on our younger and energetic opponents.  Players, please come as early as 7pm so we can sneak a little warmup and practice time.  And if you can, bring a snack or two to share with the LifeTeeners.  Good fun.

Our Council is co-sponsoring the Regional Training Seminar this Tuesday March 17 at St. Francis Xavier Church (438 Great Northern Way, Vancouver).  The topic is “How to Conduct a Successful Membership Drive” conducted by Supreme Membership and Program Consultant Brother Guy.  Executives are enjoined to attend this special training opportunity; here is the doodle link to register.  Please email me right away so we can carpool together to Vancouver.  I have room for 6 in my van.

And bring your kids to the Spring Break Basketball Clinic this Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 12-4pm so they can burn off that excess energy and not complain about being bored.  Calling all Brother Knights who are available to help out + have fun.

And as you go about all of the above and at the Pancake Breakfast tomorrow, invite a gentleman or two to join the Knights of Columbus.  Our next First Degree Exemplificationis coming up March 23.

One final call to all Third Degree Knights who would like to step up to the Fourth Degree.  Deadline for applying is March 21. Everyone is invited to join in the banquet celebration on March 28.  Tickets are $25 per person.  Email me for forms/tickets.

Finally, please keep in your prayers and extend your condolences to the family of the late Antonio Pimentel Sr., father of our Former Master, FDD and PGK Tony Pimentel.  The schedule of services are listed below.

Have a blessed week!
