The Knights of Columbus, and those of us in the New Hampshire Jurisdiction have made every effort to provide some sense of normalcy without sacrificing individual safety. We have continued to plan for activities and events within the current restrictions, in hopes of improving conditions. When needed we have not hesitated to pull the plug, as was the case with the Granite Award Banquet scheduled two week-ends ago. This have been a time of ongoing adjustments circumventing the issues affecting everyone since COVID-19. Everyone has their personal comfort level, and we respect each and everyone’s personal decisions.

Worthy Council Raffle Ticket Chairmen,

I thank you and your Councils for your support of and hard work for the 2020 Charity Raffle under difficult circumstances. I greatly appreciate the innovativeness of some Councils in their sale of Raffle Tickets. 2021 looks to be another challenging year. I will have Raffle Tickets by the end of this week (2/6) for distribution to Councils. Feel free to e-mail me at kskomisarek [AT] comcast [DOT] net or call me at (603) 625-2134 to arrange pick-up, either at my work-at-home residence (1305 Hall Street, Manchester, NH) or somewhere between there and your Council location.

Vivat Jesus!

This year we will not be laundry basket drives. We will be supporting the 18 state wide pregnancy centers via the purchase of gift cards.  I have canvassed the centers and this is their preference.  The gift cards can be used in 3 ways.  Purchases can be made for needed items for the women in crisis and their babies.  The centers can purchase supplies needed for their day to day operation. And direct donations can be given to the expectant mothers and fathers for their own purchases.  And we avoid the labor-intensive job of gathering, sorting, and delivering the laundry basket items.
