Thank you to all the people who bought a calendar from the Knights of Columbus.

This is their most popular fund raiser because they have so many winners.

They had a very good year selling the calendars.

All proceeds go to the Erie Catholic Diocese Charities and are earmarked for youth ministries.

Every year the Erie Diocese Knights of Columbus raise and donate $10,000 to the Erie Bishop for this purpose.

Thank you to all of you, Gary Koech, calendar chairperson.
