First Annual After Valentine's Brunch Fund Raiser. 15791
Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH
Twenty two council brothers, thirteen wives, and parishioners participated in our First Annual After Valentine’s Brunch Fund Raiser. Location of this fund raiser was Holy Martyr’s Church Hall on Sunday February 17, 2019. During our January Council Meeting it was decided to have a brunch following Valentines Day this year. This was our first ever Valentine’s Brunch Fund Raiser, and it was a total success. On Friday balloons were blown up and assembled by one of our parishioners from Sacred Heart Church in Yarmouth. On Saturday the hall was set-up, tables decorated in preparation for Sunday. Thanks to the wives of knights who did the decorating. On Sunday the volunteers from our council started arriving early to start preparing the food. About 98 percent of the food items were made at homes by our council membership. The menu consisted of Quiches, Eggs, Bacon, and Cheese Casseroles, French Toast Casseroles, Muffins, Coffee Cake, Pumpkin Bread, Banana Bread, Cranberry Nut Bread, etc. As stated above we had great support from our council from 22 members and 14 wives. The reason for this brunch was to promote fellowship between our knights families, and the non-knight parish families. In taking a survey of the attendees from both the 8:30 AM Mass and the 10:30 AM Mass was the food was very delicious. We also ran a 50/50 during this Brunch. Our Council Warden and his daughter was in charge of the 50/50. We didn’t charge a fee for this brunch, it was all by donation. Our Financial Secretary reported we took in $500.00 to help with our yearly Charities. We look forward to March 10, 2019 because this will be our next Brunch at Holy Martyr’s Church Hall. The menu will be Pancakes, Blue Berry or Plain, Sausage, etc. This is what being a Knight of Columbus is all about, supporting Charity, and being United. Our heartfelt thanks to the Office Staff for their help with the advertising, and to our Pastor Fr. Daniel Greenleaf for allowing us to use the hall this day for this Blessed meal. GOD is good.
