Mother Teresa


    "Let us not be afraid to be humble, small, helpless to prove our love for God. The cup of water you give the sick, the way you lift a dying man, the way you feed a baby, the way you teach a dull child, the way you give medicine to a sufferer of leprosy, the joy with which you smile at your own at home - all this is God's love in the world today. "


    13 Week Club

    The Knights of Columbus, Council 5890 here in Washingtonville, has an ongoing fundraiser called the 13 Week Club.  As the name indicates, each club runs for 13 weeks.

    Members of the club choose an available number between 1 and 300 and pay $26 to participate in 13 weeks of lucky number drawings.

    The first four weeks of each club is a registration period for members to choose their numbers and make payments. The lucky number drawings begin on Week Five with 10 numbers being drawn and each winner receiving $25.   Two $25 drawings are conducted each week from Week Six through Week 12.

    When Week 13 arrives, all members of the club are invited to the K of C Hall for a complimentary brunch and the final drawings:

    Two $25 prizes
    Three $50 prizes
    One $100 prize
    One $250 prize
    And our Grand Prize of $500.

    Congratulations to our recent club winners:

    Barbara O'Dwyer $25.00
    Viz Cordero $25.00
    Nora McCaffreey $50.00
    Louise Grix $50.00
    Sean Cunnane $50.00
    Francis Roughneen $100.00
    Gene Healy $250.00
    Mary Bridges $500.00

    All paid numbers are eligible for every drawing, so it is possible to win more than once.   The money from this fundraiser helps support the council's various activities and charitable works.

    Anyone who would like to join can contact Lynn or George Eismont at 845-496-1830. This is a great way to have fun, enjoy a wonderful meal and contribute to our charitable works.
