Well, it's been a week to remember. Our web site was hacked by some individual(s) in Europe that caused me quite the headache. After 5 days of working with the support team at our web hosting company, it appears to be fixed. I've implemented stronger security for updating the site, so hopefully it keeps them away.
It’s TOOTSIE ROLL DRIVE TIME!!! The weekend of March 11, 12, and 13 is set and ready to go for the Tootsie Roll Drive at the Evans Walmart location on Washington Road. We will pass out tootsie rolls to all of the people that donate money. This event helps us raise money for the Special Olympics.
All of the donations are sent to the Knights of Columbus Charities of Georgia at which time 60% comes back to the Columbia County Special Olympics and the other 40% goes to the State Special Olympics. Last year we raised over $6,000.00 and presented a check for over $3,000.00 to Columbia County Board of Education.
This is a wonderful cause that I need everyone's help with. This weekend in March requires a lot of volunteer hours and unfortunately at this time we are only set up for one location.
We will be voting at the March business meeting on a motion to donate $800 to the Diocese of Savannah for procurement of priest’s vestments. The vestments will be located at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist for wear by priests concelebrating the many major liturgical functions presided over by the Bishop.
Only those Council members in attendance at the meeting may vote. Be a part of this significant action by attending the business meeting on March 14.
The Council and our Fourth Degree Assembly 3493 purchased a marker dedicated to the memory of unborn babies lost to abortion.
The marker was placed in St. Teresa’s columbarium in a ceremony following the Right-to-Life Mass on the evening of Friday, January 22.
Field Agent Russell Cornell had catastrophic flood damage at his home near Clayton, GA. He has had to replace a bridge to access the house, among other property damaged.
The members present at the Feb 8 business meeting approved a donation of $300 from Council funds and contributed another $181 by passing the hat.
