Officers' Meeting

Brother Knights:
On the fourth Tuesday of the month at 7pm, we'll hold the officer's meeting.


Attention: First Degree Members

On October 26th we will be hosting a Major Degree that consists of advancement to the second and third degree of our Order. If you are a First Degree member we ask that you seriously consider making the commitment of time and spirit of Unity and Fraternity. The recent new members will be receiving a letter of explanation and our older members are asked to contact John Smith, Larry Butcher or Gary Bendall for more information. Basically, the Degree advancement will be conducted Sunday afternoon and includes a dinner. This is a “big deal” for our Council so please consider attending this ceremony, you will be glad you did!

Light up for Christ
Save the Date

December will be here before we know it so mark your calendar for December 2nd at 7:00pm. We will introduce our Christmas tree and the Season of Christ with Scripture readings, hymns and deserts provided by our Fourth Degree families. This is an excellent way of setting the proper tone for this wonderful season so bring your family out the hall. Ps…the kids will enjoy the deserts!!

Council 1139 Apparel

There are many opportunities to purchase KofC items but when can you buy items that are unique to our Council? Well, the time is now!! The clothing items are on display at the lounge and the signup sheet is in the display case so order now and pay upon delivery. We are not as fast as Amazon but you won’t find these items there! The golf shirts, sweatshirts and hats make wonderful Christmas gifts and are reasonably priced thanks to Doug Edwards. The order will go in soon and thereafter as demand dictates.  

Red Cross Blood Drive

The national and state organizations of the KofC along with our own Council have long been supporters of the blood donor programs. We provide the facilities and volunteers to host these drives and Kroger joins us by donating the snacks and drinks. The drives are on the third Wednesday of the “odd numbered” months. We just hosted a drive so the next drive will be November 19th so mark your calendar. In recent years these drives were possible due to the efforts of Shelva Cebulski, Jack Davis, Ray Scherer, Mary Garcia, and John Kuchar to name a few. By including this incomplete list you should notice that their names always come up when there is a charitable event at our KofC hall. If you can help for a few hours one Wednesday every other month please call Shelva at 723-4743. The added benefit is that you get to work with some really generous people and donate blood since you are already there!!

Who are those guys in the hats and capes?

The Fourth degree of the order is known as the patriotic degree. The Fourth Degree was in 1900 in response to anti-Catholic resentment. The Fourth degree members are a visible presence in the community reminding our neighbors of the patriotism of Catholics.
People ask why the different colors? What do they mean? You will notice that most of the Color Corp members wear red capes and white plumed chapeaux (or hats), while others have white, purple or even green capes. The Knight in charge of the Color Corp is the Commander and he wears a purple cape and purple plumed chapeaux. Fourth degree members belong to an Assembly in addition to the local K of C Council. The leader of the assembly is called the Faithfull Navigator. Navigators and Past Navigators wear white capes and white plumed chapeaux. When at large gatherings where the Bishop is present, the Color Corp is usually lead by the District Marshall who wears green cape and plume. When the District Master (or Former District Master) is present you will see him wearing gold cape and plume. Not all fourth degree members choose to wear regalia, but about 20% serve in honor guards and color corps in parades, wreath–laying ceremonies, chalice ceremonies at funeral and wakes, and other public Catholic functions as a visible reminder of our service in the community.
