What’s Cooking with Marty
Cooking schedule for May
Nothing (so far)
We have done a great job with all the meals this fraternal year, I thank you all. The fish fry made more this year than all previous years. The LSU, Hurricane relief, and special occasion meals all went well also. We have a great team, and I am blessed to have you as my friends and fellow volunteers.
Food Director KofC Council 8601
Dear Brothers and Sisters of Council 8601,I would like to wish everyone a joyous Easter Season. As we draw closer to the end of our Lenten Fish Fries, let us all rejoice in the Fraternalization that this event brings to us.
There are several events coming up in the State. First up is the State Council Couples Knight Out. This event is on Saturday, April 9, 2022 from 6 PM to 11 PM at St. Rosalie Cafatorium in Harvey LA which is on the westbank of New Orleans. The address is 622 1st Avenue Harvey, LA 70058. Cost is $30 per person which includes buffet-style food and open bar.
The State Convention will be April 30 through May 2, 2022 in Alexandria. If you have any Seminarian Raffle tickets, get those turned in soon as the drawing is at the convention.
Finally, if you know of anyone wanting to join our council, please sign them up as they are eligible for a free one year membership.
A BIG THANK YOU to all the Brothers of 8601 who have already sent in their 2022 DUES payments. For those of you who have not paid, there’s still time to beat the deadline. It’s makes Council Administration much easier if everyone pays quickly. Besides, if you pay quickly, you avoid my having to send my NuAwlins Cousins, Mario and Vinnie, to pay you a personal visit. They have a wide variety of means to make you remember to pay…
But, seriously, our Council has had its first net INcrease in membership in quite a few years. If everyone renews his membership by paying his dues, we will be well on the way to gaining “STAR Council” Status. Once you have sent in your payment, why not come out to a meeting to learn what a STAR Council is and how you might be able to help 8601 reach that status.
