Attendance Lottery Results

Last night's meeting kicked off our newly created "Attendance Lottery" The Council seeded the initial pot and now has grown to $80 as there was no winner present. The lucky winner would have been Richard L. Burke if he was present. The lottery is randomized using a sophisticated program where it uses the current 230 member list to pick one winner each meeting. If the winner is not present the pot is rolled over until a winner is present. So, make sure you come to our next meeting to take part in the lottery. It is only $2 per person to enter per meeting and you have to be present to win it.

Homecoming Knight, a great success!


Friday September 24th marked our first annual Homecoming Knight at Coogan Hall. It was a great success to see old, new and familiar faces. This informal meeting night was an opportunity to come to a meeting for the first time or in a long time. A lot of great ideas were presented and we believe the council is going in the right direction with everyone's help. We will be trying to build a scholarship fund, continue to actively recruit younger candidates and build upon our great programs. We were also able to give out complimentary tickets to the Temple vs. Army game on Oct 2nd. For those going, enjoy the game. You deserve it! We have some more tickets
still available and we will be giving them out tomorrow at Oradell Day Sunday Sept 26th at Memorial Field from 12:30pm to 4:30pm. Stop by our booth or lend a hand if you can.

Since this night was a great success, we will be following it up with another informal social next month on October 22nd at 7:30pm. This time we will be challenging members to bring one new face to the meeting who was not there last social. We will open the bar up again and possibly have the opportunity to view the Yankees in the ALCS Game 6 if it goes that far. We can have it projected big screen and open it up to invite family members and friends to the event.

Stay tuned to our website and the parish bulletin for more info. Thank you again to all those who came and provided great feedback!

Fly a Flag on 9/11 Program


On Saturday, September 11th, 2010, an American flag should be displayed outside every home, apartment, office, and store in the United States . Every individual should make it their duty to display an American flag on this Ninth anniversary of one our country's worst tragedies. We do this honor of those who lost their lives on 9/11, their families, friends and loved ones who continue to endure the pain, and those who today are fighting at home and abroad to preserve our cherished freedoms.

Action Plan:

So, here's what we need you to do ...

(1) Forward this email to everyone you know. Take a moment to think back to how you felt on 9/11 and let those sentiments guide you.

(2) Fly an American flag of any size on 9/11. Honestly, Americans should fly the flag year-round, but if you don't, then at least make it a priority on this day.

Welcome, to the new home of the K of C St. Joseph Council 3814 New Milford


Welcome to the unofficial launch of the new web home of the Knights of Columbus St. Joseph Council 3814 located in New Milford, NJ. As a council we felt it was necessary to adapt to the ever changing world and help better server our members, the community and our parish with a more up to date and interactive web site. This blog will give you details of our council, the events we are participating in and current news we would like to share. What we would like to accomplish by producing a blog like this, is to showyou the different facets of our council, from the individual members, to our opinions and how we grow as catholic men of faith. Our duty as catholic men of the Knights of Columbus order is to leave an identity in our community of charity, unity and fraternity. Hopefully, you can make this a regular stop and can get a deeper picture of not only what we are, but who we are in the community.
