2020 Golf Social
Registration is now open for our 27th Annual St Thomas More Knights of Columbus Charity Golf Social! A special thank you to all our 2019 Event Sponsors and those golfers for their support in last years' event..
Last year, nearly 50 sponsors participated and the event was attended by nearly 100 golfers. With over $18,000 in net proceeds raised, the St Thomas More Knight of Columbus were able to fund various parish and community projects.
One of those community projects made possible by last years' generosity was a donation to help the needy in Spokane with food, clothing, shelter, and heat. In addition, our council was able to support a variety of youth and community activities, as well as contributed to the support of our clergy.
All this has been made possible with your support of this worthy fundraiser and we hope to see you, new faces and sponsors again this year.

Cancelling Events & Gatherings (March 11, 2020)
Until restrictions are lifted, our Supreme Knight, Carl A. Anderson advised all events, gatherings and council activities are to be suspended. You can read below for more information from our Supreme Knight on this decision.
We pray for healing and that this passes quickly.
Grand Knight, Council 11134
Dear Fraternal Leader,
The Knights of Columbus is carefully monitoring the coronavirus situation and its impact on the Order. Since the virus is spread by personal contact, containment efforts stress social distancing by restricting travel, meetings and other gatherings. Accordingly, the Supreme Council most strongly recommends the following actions to protect brother Knights and others:
Cancel all personal contact meetings, including business meetings, until further notice. Cancel all planned events, where people would gather, until further notice. Cancel all travel for Knights of Columbus business until further notice.
There are many ways to continue council operations without face to face contact. Here are some suggestions:
Conduct meetings by conference call, Skype, Google Groups or other methods. Use a webinar service for large meetings like monthly business meetings. Allow member votes by email or text to approve bills and candidate admissions. Use the email feature of Officers Online for member communications. Set up a call tree to contact members and ascertain their wellbeing. Conduct degree ceremonies in homes using the combined Exemplification of Charity, Unity and Fraternity video or the First Degree video. Use applications like “Go fund me” to digitally raise funds for causes.
Additional information is available for members and their families on the websites of the CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL and WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION. Be aware that the elderly and sick are highly vulnerable to this disease.
This is a moment to deepen our commitment to the very principles which define us: charity, unity and fraternity. There will likely be many opportunities in coming weeks to live out these principles in service to our brother Knights, our families and our communities. May this time of difficulty also be a moment when we as Knights step into the breach and show ourselves to be disciples of Jesus Christ and men at the service of others.
Carl A. Anderson
