Newton Falls Council # 3350 March 2011
Grand Knights Report:
It’s been a pretty good year, we were able to raise over $400.00 dollars from our measure up
campaign last year and we donated it to the Special Olympics that are run by Fairhaven in Niles.
We gave a couple of flags to our district deputy Dave Bender who is a Fourth Degree knight for
the proper retirement of the flag.
Our spaghetti dinners are doing pretty good, I am very thankful for the Brother Knights and for the
ladies that help us out. The ladies that help us out are, Lillian Stimac, Jacka Verbosky, Sophie
Kurtz, and Val Simon.
These ladies help us out a lot and help to make our dinners a success, so please thank them
when you see them. We are going to try another fund raiser on Saturday March 5th; we are going
to be selling sausage sandwiches after the 4pm. mass down stairs in the church. I would like to
thank Father Matthew for allowing us to use the down stairs of the church for this event.
If you haven't been to a meeting in a while, I encourage you to attend; we are trying to make a
positive difference in the church and the community. We recently set up a box for food donations
at the council hall, and once a month we take that box and donate the food to Saint's Mary &
Joseph food pantry.
Saint's Mary & Joseph school is having a Night at the races on Saturday March 26th at Saint
Mary's social hall to help raise money for the school. Our council will be running the Chuck-A-
Luck wheel at this event with all of the proceeds going to the school. If anyone can help me run
the wheel for this event it would be greatly appreciated. Just a reminder, our council meetings are
the first and third Mondays of the month at 7:00 pm at the council hall, please try to attend. I
thank all of you for your continued support of our council and together we will continue to fulfill our
duties as Knights of Columbus through our acts of Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism. May
God bless you all,
Sincerely, and Fraternally,
Jim Burns; Grand Knight Newton Falls Council # 3350
