re-instituting the Executive Club. Only 100 tickets will be sold at $50.00 each. Prizes will
be distributed as follows: 1st prize - $1,000
2nd prize - $ 750

possibly fatten your own wallet at the same time. The tickets are already on sale, and the drawing will be held on
June 17, 1993 at the Fraternal Night held at our office on McLean Ave.
Yonkers Raceway Night
On Saturday evening, March 20th, a group of members, their families and friends attended the annual
Night at Yonkers Raceway. The evening, which was enjoyed by almost 70 people, featured a Prime Rib Dinner,
and a race named in honor of W.J. Boyd Council. The night was a huge social success, but if the moaning and
grumbling were any indication, not too many members of our group achieved any of the financial gain they undoubtedly
envisioned. Many thanks to Dennis Farley, who once again provided the attendees with a great evening of entertainment
that came off without a hitch.
1st Degree - April 29th - at Aquinas Council
3rd Degree - April 16th - at St. Raymond's Council
When you would like to know about upcoming events, give us a call at
(914) 237 - 2747. We are trying to use our telephone answering machine as a kind of bulletin board - a way to keep
you informed of any curent council news, as well as providing the general membership with a point of contact during off-hours.
On the first and third Thursdays of every month we have been hosting Fraternal Nights at our office at 1008 McLean Ave.
There are poker games and/or dart matches featured on these nights, with beer, soda and hot dogs for your refreshment. If cards
or darts don't interest you, then come by anyway and just enjoy the company of your fellow Knights. There is a $5.00 charge for
refreshments and the fun begins at 7:30.
