Installation of Officers

On Saturday, June 22, 2019 we will hold the 43rd Annual Installation of Officers Ceremony and Awards Dinner for Knights of Columbus Council 6650 in the Gallery Room of the St. Michael’s Conference Center. You and your family are cordially invited, and encouraged, to attend.  Cost of the dinner is $10 per adult and $3 per child.

·       Rick Lewis, our current Worthy District Deputy and now State Warden Elect, will perform the ceremony of inducting our newly elected officers into their leadership positions for our next Fraternal Year which starts July 1st. 

·       We hope you will show your support of our Council and the new Leadership Team by attending.  

·       Prior to the Installation of Officers Ceremony and Awards Dinner join your fellow nights and their families at the 5:00 PM Saturday Evening Mass at St. Michaels.  Rows of pews will be reserved for Knights and their families and it would be helpful to let us know that as well.  If you aren’t able to make the mass we expect the Installation of Officers Ceremony to begin at 6:30 PM.

·       Please RSVP to Steve Schaale, specifying how many adults and children will attend, along with the names of each family member.  Payment can be made in advance or you can pay at the door.  Reservations and payment can be sent to Steve at: 2606 Club Level Dr. Apex, NC 27523

·       To help facilitate planning, it would be helpful if you would RSVP as soon as possible but, please, no later than Wednesday June 19th.  At that time, we will need to confirm the catering and may not be able to accommodate you.

Thank you in advance for your support.

Vivat Jesus!

At the request of the Assembly, we are moving the Ladies Appreciation Dinner back one week, from February 16th to February 23rd, 2019, same time (6 pm).  Due to the Hurricane this past Fall, the only 4th Degree Exemplification will occur on February 16th in Greensboro.  

Unlike the past two years, this year's dinner will be at Saint Michael's Catholic Church, Gallery.   We will only be charging $15.00 per couple.

We will once again have a slide show of our wives/girlfriends and families that will be shown during dinner; if you are attending and want to provide pictures, simply email them to me.  

We hope to see you there.

I hope that you all had a very Blessed Christmas and are looking forward to a Happy & Prosperous New Year!  Unfortunately there are many in our community who are in need, and will not have a happy or prosperous new year without our help.  As in the past two years, our Council has been asked to again help with the 2019 CPO food drives at St. Andrew’s church.  Brother Jay Foliano and I will be coordinating this effort and we are inviting all Brother Knights, especially those who are members of St. Andrew the Apostle, to participate in this worthy cause.  We will be distributing bags and shopping lists on January 19 & 20 and will be collecting food and monetary donations on January 26 & 27.  Please use the SignUpGenius link or contact me at to volunteer an hour or two of your time.
