Knights of Columbus (Ellinwood)
The Ellinwood St. Joseph Council 1187 Knights of Columbus was first charted on January 13, 1907. In the spring we have an awards breakfast to recognize those who have attained 25 and 50 years of membership and those who have attained honorary life membership. In November we hold our annual memorial service to eulogize the members who have passed away in the past year. In December we have our annual Christmas party. On the last Sunday in January we have a soup sampler dinner. The proceeds from this event go to our scholarship fund. On the first Friday of Lent we have a catfish fry, the proceeds goes to requests for aid that we get during the year. In October we have our annual pancake and sausage breakfast, this event is held in conjunction with the state wide tootsie roll campaign. This helps fund the annual special olympics and several Barton county organizations helping people with intellectual disabilities. In January we have our bottles for babies program with the proceeds going to Barton county prolife organizations. Through our emergency disaster aid program we help people who have suffered substantial loss because of a natural disaster. Through the state run Aid to Religious Education program the PSR programs of St. Joseph in Ellinwood and Holy Name in Bushton receive financial help.
