We meet the fourth Wednesday of every month at 7:00 pm at the Council 4444 hall.

How much does it cost to join?

Our dues are $10.00 annually. This money is used to offset our expenses. Any funds we raise go toward charitable works. Our calendar year begins August 1st.

How much of my time is required?

There are two classifications of membership: Active and Associate. The Active member attends meetings monthly, participates in planning projects, supports scheduled activities, and serves on a committee. The Associate member attends meetings occasionally and is welcome to participate in projects or scheduled activities and encouraged to serve on a committee.

What are some of our projects?

We host fund raising events to raise money for the Councils needs. We sponsored gift certificate and basket raffle ticket sales. We hosted Mardi Gras, Super Bowl, and Sock Hop events. Proceeds from ticket sales and events funded new tables and kitchen equipment for the hall. We participate in the Knights’ programs – namely the annual Tootsie Roll Drive and the Pro-Life Dinner. The Tootsie Roll Drive raises funds for the mentally and physically handicapped in the community and the state of Florida. Other activities include the Annual Clergy Appreciation Dinner, Package Breakfast for St. Mary’s Catholic Church, and Bingo. We also participate jointly with the Knights at the installation of officers, the annual Christmas Dinner, funeral masses and memorial services for deceased knights, and Veteran’s Day commemoration service.

Is it all work and no play?

Not at all. We participate in family nights (dinner gatherings every 5th week), Super Bowl Sunday and other outings. We join in gala events with the Council 4444 Christmas Party, murder mystery dinners, and annual picnics.
