2019 Fish Fry

posted Mar 8, 2019, 9:26 AM by Michael Kahny

Carry-Out: $8.50 
Dine-In: $10.00 

Lenten Fish Fries will begin on Friday, March 8 and runs every Friday thru April 19. Drive-thru & dine-in dinners are served from 4pm until 7pm.

As always, it takes a lot of help to serve the amount of delicious food that our supporters enjoy. If you can help, please do so. 

If you have questions, contact Tom Odenweller, 419 230-2893, or come out on any Friday morn­ing, or any time on when we are working on this project. 

We always need help on Fridays during Lent, so check in if you can. We have volunteers doing all the work necessary to make this project a wonderful success. A success not only in money raised for your K of C, but also providing a time and place for families and friends to visit. 

Please help if you can. Make this the year that you sacrifice some of your time for a great Lenten project. Serving begins at 4:00 PM every Friday in Lent. 

Remember, it takes a lot of help, and we need some new guys to get involved. Please help if you can. Contact Tom Odenweller if you have questions or suggestions.

Mr. Gene Border from the Lima Red Cross will come to the K of C Hall for CPR training. We'll have the training immediately after the March business meet­ing on March 11, 2019.

This is a "hands only" CPR training (no mouth to mouth), and will not result in any certifi­cate because of the amount of time that we'll have. If you want to receive a certificate, we'll have to look into what it takes.

This training will teach how to use chest compression to keep blood flowing in the event of a heart failure. This training is available to members, spouses, and widows of deceased mem­bers.

Why not come out? If we are fortunate, we'll never need the training, but you might be able to save someone's life.

The next person to need CPR might be you, or me! Having people around who know have had training just makes sense.

I do need to know how many people will be here for the train­ing so Gene can be prepared. We have to limit the session to 20 people, so contact me as soon as possible. Hopefully, we'll have to schedule another session for those who can't get into this one.

If you have questions or want to make a reservation, send Tom Odenweller an email to, or call me at 419 230-2893, or stop out at the Hall on Thursday evenings.

Contact Your Senators to Protect Life!

Dear Brother Knight,
I urge you to contact your U.S. Senators today, and ask them to take a strong stance against infanticide by supporting the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.
This common sense legislation requires that medical professionals exercise the same degree of care when a failed abortion results in a live birth as they would for a regular delivery.
The U.S. Senate will take an important vote on this legislation Monday evening, so they need to hear from you immediately.
Our Knights of Columbus/Marist Poll found that 56% of Americans believe that an unborn child is a unique life and 75% would limit abortion to, at most, the first three months of pregnancy.  However, I think we can all agree that a newborn child has a right to the best care possible, no matter what the circumstances of their birth.
Please visit our Action Alert Center to email your Senators in support of this life saving legislation.  If you prefer, you can also call their offices in Washington directly.
Thank you for your attention to this important matter.
Carl Anderson
Supreme Knight

Help Send a Warrior on the Pilgrimage of a Lifetime

posted Feb 11, 2019, 6:21 AM by Michael Kahny   [ updated Feb 11, 2019, 6:22 AM ]

You don’t have to go to war to feel its devastating effects. As a military wife, I have witnessed my husband change following his deployments and training. Though I'm proud of his service, the effects on our marriage have been ravaging. But there's hope. There is Lourdes. As a wife and caregiver, I am so blessed to have been part of the Warrior to Lourdes pilgrimage, and I tell you, I found peace, joy, friendship and healing to carry on my call as a military wife.

— Claudia J., Marine Corps Spouse and Nurse, 2018 Volunteer

Countless of our warriors carry visible and invisible “wounds of war.” Whether they suffer physical, mental or spiritual trauma, their wounds are the result of their sacrifice and dedication to the protection of our great nation and the American people.

It is now our turn to reach out to them and their families, to help free them from isolation and brokenness and aid them in their search for healing, peace and reconciliation.

Join our efforts by supporting the annual Warrior to Lourdes Pilgrimage. Each donation of $2,600 sends a pilgrim to Lourdes. Please give what you can — every dollar you donate makes a difference.
