K of C Council 103
Habitat for Humanity

  Through the ongoing efforts of  local Knights,  our council  continues to exemplify the Knights' spirit of community volunteerism by supporting  local  Habitat for Humanity projects.

  We will be organizing another outing soon.  If  you would like to participate in a cause that serves both our Church and our Community, please do not hesitate to join in. 

  Don't feel you can't contribute to this noteworthy endeavor because you never or rarely participate in K of C functions, or because you're not a professional tradesman.  -   Your involvement is both welcomed and wanted!!   Your Brother Knights will make you comfortable in helping the Knights help others.

  Phone Grand Knight Jack
Laviolette at 464-6009 to answer this calling for your services and sign up for our next Habitat for Humanity work outing!

You'll always have something more valuable to give than money.
