Knights of Columbus Serve Community in Many Ways The Mentally Retarded Campaign held in August was again one of the major events conducted by Charles Carroll Council No. 780 of the Knights of Columbus. The drive, consisting of the distribution of specially wrapped tootsie rolls, was part of a statewide program to raise money for the mentally retarded. The project made a prof it of over $1,900. According to Grand Knight Frank Hermsen, New Hope Village was given $1,000, the Carroll County Association for Retarded Citizens (ARC) and the Developmental Center for Handicapped Persons were each given $430, and the Audubon County ARC was given $33. The local Knights of Columbus also contributed $350 to a state fund to be used for the handicapped in regions that are not served by a Knights of Columbus Council and for statewide programs. Most of the state fund this year was donated to help sponsor the Special Olympics. In addition to the Mentally Retarded Campaign, weekly events of fun and games were held every Saturday evening at the K.C. hall on 6th Street between Main and Adams. "These events have enabled the Knights to contribute to charitable and civic causes such as the Kuemper Century Club and yearbook, United Way, scholarships, pro-life, Newman Clubs at various state colleges, Catholic education, Catholic advertising and public relations," Hermsen said. The Council also provided each of the Catholic grade schools in the area book covers and some visual aid materials. The K.C.'s continue to serve the community in many ways. They hold recognition dinners for the sisters, priests, law enforcement officers, and firemen and held Operation Sandbox for the benefit of young children. Also, a spring dance was held for the benefit of scholarships for graduating seniors. They also sponsor daily rosary broadcasts, masses for the sick, corporate Communions and breakfasts, memorial masses, pro-life efforts, Keeping Christ in Christmas Programs, Christmas caroling and altar boy picnics. This past year the Council was awarded the Columbian Award by the Supreme office for conducting four major activities in each of the following sections of the service program: Church,. Community, Council, and Youth Activities. This is the second consecutive year the Carroll K.C.'s have received this award. These programs were conducted under the leadership of Program Director Jim Nepple. Regular monthly meetings are held on the second Monday of each month and couples' nights and stag nights are held monthly. Membership in the Council is open to any male Catholic over J8 years of age.
