Fish Dinners

    Our first fish dinner this year is February 23. Hopefully you are planning to come and enjoy a great meal. More importantly, please volunteer to help at these dinners to assure their success. You can volunteer at our February meeting, or simply contact Mike McDonnell or Greg Burrows to sign up.

Pro-Life Collections

    Our One Rose One Life collection which we conducted in January brought in $1078.44. Thank you to all who contributed.
    Our Buck-a-Month pro-life campaign is continuing. So far we have received contributions totaling $463. This fund drive continues through the end of February. You can donate simply by putting your check (payable to “K of C Culture of Life Foundation of Nebraska”) in an envelope marked “Buck-a-Month” and dropping it in the collection basket at a STM weekend Mass. Or you can mail it to Greg Burrows at 2117 S 38th Ave, Omaha, NE, 68105. Alternatively, you can make a non-deductible contribution online by clicking the Payments icon on our council home page and then going to the Voluntary Contribution section at the bottom of that page.

Pancake Breakfast

    Our pancake breakfast held on January 28th brought in $1403.50. After subtracting our expenses it looks like we will have a profit of $1240 to donate to the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program. We extend a special Thank You to Eddie’s Catering for donating the sausage for that breakfast.

Dues for 2018

    As of early February we still have 33 members who have not paid their dues for 2018. If you have not yet paid (and you are not an Honorary Life member), please send in your dues as soon as possible. If you like, you can drop your dues envelope in the collection basket at one of the STM weekend Masses. Also note that you can now pay online. Click the Payments icon on our Council’s home page to find out how: (www.nebraskakofc.org/kc10184).
