Fish Dinners – 2 Down, 1 to Go

    At our first fish dinner this year on March 10 we served 513 meals. By coincidence we served the same number of meals at our second dinner on March 24. Our last dinner is April 7. Please come and lend a hand if you can to assure the success of this last dinner, or at least attend with your family and friends to enjoy a great meal. We look forward to seeing you.

Proseeds Fundraising

    An article in last month’s newsletter described the Proseeds fundraising program which our council began participating in about a year ago. Our council recently received a check for $17.55 from Proseeds. This represents the donations we earned from just six supporters of this program during the last half of 2016. Imagine how much more we could be earning if more people signed up and participated. Pleases go to our council's web site (www.nebraskakofc.org/kc10184) and click on the "Proseeds" icon to learn more about the program, and how easy it is to sign up and then link your Visa or American Express card. After linking your card, you can start earning donations for our council simply by using that linked card at any of the over 100 participating merchants.

Mother’s Day Flower Sale

    On Mother’s Day weekend (May 13 & 14) we will once again sell roses after each Mass to benefit Essential Pregnancy Services. We could use a couple volunteers after each Mass to pass out the roses and collect the donations. Please sign up at our April meeting or you can contact Greg Burrows (either by phone at 402-346-4081 or by e-mail to gburrows1@msn.com) to volunteer.
