We are collecting items to sell at the upcoming 4th Degree Yard Sale. Please help us collect sale-able items! If you have anything to contribute, you may bring it on the day of the sale or contact us to tell us about it. Please see the online form.
Wow! Our Metal Drive is continuous! You can take your metal to Padnos on Turner just north of Ann Street and tell them to put the cash into our account for Knights of Columbus 7761. It is easy and, if you are trashing your metal, please consider having a container to collect for us! Pickup items from neighbors who are throwing metal away. Recycling metal keeps it out of the stinky landfills. Please see videos below.
You enter the customer area near the metal Dog Sculpture and metal Dog House, and get in line. If you need a cart, there are many. You will be asked what type of metals you have and then you will put it on a scale. Tell them your account is Knights of Columbus 7761, Rockford, MI
They will weigh and tell you how much you get.
So instead of throwing out pie tins, aluminum serving pans, scrap aluminum, copper wire, nails, etc, I collected two boxes worth $2.50. I go by Padnos all the time. You can have a knight pickup your metal recycling if you would rather not go there.
On April 19, our Knights voted to approve funds to educate OLC staff at a seminar!
Our council received state wide accolades for starting 9 Knights in March! Congratulations to Thom Arends, Greg Beasley, and all others who helped achieve this fantastic record!
Nate Brown is looking for volunteers to help setup and teardown and help customers with smiling service, and carrying of items during the sale, and to help acquire quality items for resale. The Knights are very interested in your saleable donations for our yard sale. IF you have any questions about an item, if you need pickup, or if you have metal for us to recycle, please call Nate at 616-874-8087 to find out more. VOLUNTEERS please contact Nate by phone or let GK Larry know with our ONLINE signup form (below) if you plan to be working one or both of those days. We cannot and do NOT want Televisions, or electronic items, such as old computers, monitors, etc, as we have to pay to throw them away and the likelihood of a sale is nearly zero. (Best Buy does take televisions, at no charge, and you can deliver them at the store-just go in and alert someone and they will take it)
If you can wrap your item in clear plastic-we thank you! Anything you can do to package your item, to help make it sale -able is greatly appreciated!! We raise funds at this event to pay the costs of travel for our clergy, among other things.
The 12th annual BEST PROM EVER! will be held on April 22nd 2017 at Sparta High School. Last years’ event had 1500 guests! This year attendance is expected to be even larger, possibly 2000! The Best Prom Ever! is a prom dance for those who are mentally impaired, complete with CATERED DINNER, a DJ for Dancing, plus Prom Portraits and lots of other activities! Our Knights helped setup, tear-down, and offered special care needed for this event to be able to happen. Chairperson Renne Wyman is looking forward to our help again this year.
