Chili Chowder Cook Off - Helping Assembly 3215

05/19/2018


Council: 10020 - No. WINDHAM

Project Description:

Raising money for our local Assembly can be difficult to do as well as being sensitive to not overcrowd the individual Councils activities. For the third year two of the three Councils who make up the majority of the Assembly held a Chili / Chowder Cook-Off. In total there are 74 members of the Assembly. A committee was formed and 12 Sir Knights worked together to advertise, organize, set-up and clean-up this activity on behalf of the Assembly. The profits from the Cook-Off are earmarked to support a Seminarian studying to serve the Diocese of Portland.

Flyer’s were inserted in Church bulletins and notices place in local newspapers inviting home cooks to enter the Cook-Off challenge. In all, 15 entrants responded and all were home cooks.

The event was held in Windham at the Church Hall of one of the Councils in the Assembly. Sir Knights gathered to set up the hall, shop for supplies and prepare for the event. The day of the event 12 Sir Knights worked with the entrants to get them ready to compete. As people came in and paid a small admission fee they were handed a ballot. People could try as many of 15 chili’s and chowders as they wanted (or dared). They were asked to rank their top three choices in each category. A 50/50 drawing was also available for participation. As the even drew to a close the organizing committee tallied the ballots and announced the top three entrants in each category. The first place winner received an engraved plaque and a year’s worth of bragging rights for having the Lake Region’s Best Chili or Chowder.

The Assembly, assisted by the Councils, was able to donate $500 to one of the Seminarians. The event was well attended and a creative way of raising awareness and support of our Seminarians.

Answering the Call from a District Council in Need. 15791

05/17/2018


Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH

Project Description:

Fourteen brothers from our council Admission’s Team answered the call for help at Holy Martyr’s Church on Wednesday May 16, 2018. Some two weeks ago our District Deputy put out the word that one of our District Councils would have some Catholic men who would be in need of an Admission Degree. With the Portland Council’s Team not available to respond to the request, our Grand Knight agreed to assemble the Falmouth Team to help. On Wednesday May16, 2018 we held our latest Admission Degree and installed one new brother Knight into the Order for Council 14246. The hope is that during the month of June our council will be installing several more new members for both our council and 14246. As a District we have worked jointly in bringing in a number of new members during this Fraternal Year.




Mother Day Breakfast

05/17/2018


Council: 5515 - NORWAY

Project Description:

The Knights of our council, in recognition of Mother’s Day, prepared a wonderful pancake, sausage and egg breakfast after the 8:30 AM Mass on Mother’s Day, May 13, 2018. The breakfast was free for all mothers who came to it and for the rest of the family, we took an offering to cover the cost of their breakfast. The parish supported our efforts. Mothers were honored with the youth reciting a decade of the rosary before Mass, there were carnations given out by another organization after Mass and then we had the free breakfast after that. Everyone enjoyed the fact that they were treated to a breakfast prepared by the Knights and we received several accolades for our work. A good time was had by all who attended.




REcitation of a Decade of the Rosary to our Mother Mary by the youth of our parish

05/17/2018


Council: 5515 - NORWAY

Project Description:

The young Catechism students from grades Pre K to Grade 2 recited a decade of the Rosary before the Mother’s Day Mass on May 13, 2018. This project was spearheaded by Grand Knight Richard Miller who coordinated with the administrator of the CCD program at the church for this to occur. So often, students learn the three prayers, the Our Father, the Hail Mary, and the Glory Be and this exercise brought those three separate components together in front of all the parishioners who attended the 8:30 AM Mass. It brought the families into church that morning and what a special morning that was paying homage to our Mother, Mary! It did not take long to recite the decade, but the students walked away with the knowledge that they learned something that morning. The Knights initiative to recite a decade of the rosary will inspire some students to inquire about doing it again, perhaps at home, will lead to a more involved participation by the youth in the church which is what we would like them to do.
