KofC Ladies Auxiliary
"Helping Knights Help Others"
Every year it is a task for the State Chair Couple to start new Auxiliaries. When a new Council or Assembly is formed this is a great opportunity to start an Auxiliary. Some helpful information to give to your Councils thinking about starting an Auxiliary could be the following. Across the State we have 101 Auxiliaries. We have 3,378 members. At the 2014 Convention these numbers were collected and tabulated:
- Volunteer Hours: 221,828 hours
- Grand Total Donations: $293,393
The Auxiliaries work long hours and work hard on projects to be able to donate this amount of money. Utilizing their motto, “Helping Knights Help Others”.
Please encourage your Auxiliaries to attend the Area Meetings. This is the time when Presidents and their board members have a chance to talk with other Auxiliaries in their areas. They learn what forms are needed to be filled out for the State and why. It's also a nice opportunity for them to hear fresh ideas from other Auxiliaries. Some may be experiencing the same issues. Or some may just need to "brag" about their Auxiliary with pride. All the meetings begin at 1:00 pm with some type of lunch/dessert. The meetings typically end by 3 p.m. The schedule is posted on the website.
Besides getting information from your Ladies Auxiliary Chair Couple, your District Deputy also brings you information, such as the State Program Manual. Reach out to your District Deputy and introduce yourself. Make sure he knows you are active. The Ladies are encouraged to attend the summer District Deputy meetings with your Grand Knights and / or council representatives. This meeting provides you with information to assist with planning for the new fiscal year.
Are you looking to grow your auxiliary but seeing some obstacles? Are you wondering what some other options are for activities? We are available to work with your auxiliary as needed. We want to see each of you succeed in your works and continue to move forward.
Thank you everyone for all your hard work. We look forward in working with all of you and wish everyone a “fun” and productive year.
