More Upcoming Events 
  •  Our October membership meeting will be Wednesday, October 11th at 7:30 p.m. Join us for dinner at 6:30 and stay for the meeting. As always, it will be brief but worth your while to attend!
  • The Westchester-Putnam Chapter Charities of the KofC is once again "Freezin' for a Reason" -- and that reason is to raise funds for Special Olympics. Each council has been challenged to participate in this year's Polar Plunge. Support the Chapter's team by clicking here to join the team or to make a donation. Then, take a dip at noon on Saturday, November 18th, at Glen Island Park in New Rochelle. There are no minimums for donations, and everyone is invited to take the plunge (ankle-deep or fully submerged - it's up to you!). Bring the whole family for a fun time, and have them cheer you on and hand you a towel.

We received the first two shipments of wall tiles, and they are beautiful! You can see them on the wall of our private, fence enclosed patio behind our building, adjacent to the County parking lot for use with Council and rental functions.  This outdoor space is multi-functional and family friendly, and has already become a tremendous asset to our building.


We have two sizes of tile to choose from: 8x8" for $75 and 12x12" for $125. Our second order has been placed and our third order is in progress, so get in your tile purchase form to Mike Bock today. Please download and complete this form and return it with your payment as soon as possible.


If you have any questions, please feel free to Contact PGK Jonathan at 646-525-9536 or  jonathanbcfh@gmail.com for more information.


The remodeling of our patio and the success of this fundraiser are dependent on you!  Please prayerfully consider purchasing tiles engraved in memory or in honor of your loved ones and special intentions.
