Knights Set for Valentine Dance

Byline: Jody Conidi

The Knights of Columbus annual Valentine Dinner and Dance will be held Feb. 10 at the Itasca Country Club beginning with open bar at 6:30 p.m., dinner, and an evening of dancing until midnight.

Tickets will be sold at the door for $75 per couple, with the choice of smoking or non-smoking tables available.

According to Deputy Grand Knight Tom Kryger, the Knights of Columbus are expecting a turn-out of 240 people for the occasion, based on previous year's attendance.

Donations from local businesses will be raffled during the evening, and proceeds from the raffle will be used for a "split the pot," with half of the proceeds going toward Knights' charities and half as winnings.

The Knights are publishing a booklet for the occasion that will feature local business advertisements. Businesses interested in advertising in the publication can call (630) 773-9393.

The Knights of Columbus are an organization of Catholic men who are committed to charity, unity, fraternity, patriotism and defense of the priesthood; the protection of human life, from conception to natural death; and to the preservation of the family.

The Knights of Columbus was founded in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney at St. Mary's Church in New Haven, Conn. and is today the largest lay organization in the Catholic Church.

The Itasca Knights of Columbus were originally part of the Holy Ghost Council, until organizing their own council more than 10 years ago. Itasca now has 66 active roster members from Itasca and its surrounding communities.

The Itasca Knights are an active council appearing in Itasca's annual Memorial Day Parade, holding the annual Knights of Columbus Tootsie Roll Day for the mentally handicapped, holding prayer vigils at a local abortion clinic and show regalia at wakes and funerals of brother Knights.
