Everyone has probably been at a Knights of Columbus sponsored event, such as a dinner or dance.
Or, perhaps we’ve been at an event in which members have been present in their distinctive purple plumed hats, black capes and swords.
But not many people realize that the Knights of Columbus was founded in 1882 and that their charities have included local, national and international projects such as Special Olympics, Habitat for Humanity and Food for Families. They’ve donated $1.4 billion to charity in the past decade.
People who pick up their chicken BBQ dinners on Sunday at St. Paul Catholic Church in Genesee Depot probably will be thinking more about the delicious meal they’re about to have than about the charities benefitting from the money raised.
The Conversion of Paul Council 15276 Knights of Columbus at St. Paul will be serving the take-out only dinner from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday. Each dinner includes a chicken leg quarter, potato salad, cole slaw, beans and roll.
Cost is $8 in advance or $9 at the door. Tickets are available before and after Mass at St. Paul’s Church in Genesee Deport or from Knights of Columbus members.
Bring two nonperishable food items and get $1 back per meal. Items will be donated to the Loaves & Fishes Committee.
You could call it a win-win situation … a great meal for a great charity!
