October is finally here! The Order’s October Membership Drive is officially underway! What does a Membership Drive really mean? It means that your Council should make a planned effort to recruit and initiate new members. For the last couple of months, I have included in this column information for getting your Membership Drive in October underway. If your Council has not taken the necessary steps previously outlined, don’t fret: A successful membership drive can still be held! You won’t have as many tools and resources at your disposal, but it shouldn’t be complicated and it still can be successful!
The State Bowling Committee extends an invitation to all Knights to join in the fraternity, fellowship, and fun at our Annual Men’s Bowling Tournament. A current Traveling/Membership Card is required for entry to the tournament. Knights do not have to be a League Bowler to participate.
The 71st Annual State Bowling Tournament, hosted by Council #13012 St. Matthews, will be held at West Ridge Lanes, Topeka, KS on February 21st & 22nd, February 28th & March 1st and March 7th and 8th, 2016. Entry forms will be mailed to all current Grand Knights and Team Captains from last year’s tournament.
Requirements to host the 2016 Bowling Tournament are a site with a minimum of 24 lanes and sufficient lodging for the participants and their families. Bowlers at this year’s event will choose the location for next year’s tournament site by popular vote at the tournament. Any Council interested in hosting the 2016 Tournament MUST MAKE their request in writing, to Michael Grothoff, Council Activities Director before January 19, 2015.

The Knights of Columbus does many wonderful things everyday. As members we can be proud of our record of service, support for our priests and the work we do in our parishes and community. The “Did You Know” series is intended to keep the good works done by the Order first and foremost in your minds. Remind your councils of these successes at their business meetings and use them when recruiting new members.
