1060 AM Catholic Radio Proposal
General
General
Posted by Dr. David Caton on January 29th, 2016

Brother Knights: Please be prepared to vote on Robert Seydel's proposal below for our Council's support of 1060 AM Catholic Radio, at our February 11th Council Meeting:

"I Robert Seydel, came before the Knights of columbus Council 1498 to propose a donation of $3600 to Catholic Radio 1060 AM.  The radio station is trying to raise 2 million dollars to buy the radio station.  The $3600 establish us as a founding member of the radio station.  It also shows our commitment as Knights to keeping Catholic Radio on the air in Colorado.  This radio station reaches millions of people each day.  It provides a healthy Christian message compared to all the other stuff out there.  As Knights, we should support this effort, and so I ask that we donate $3600 to this organization to help them reach their goal."

Recorder note: At our planning meeting we also discussed the possibility of paying the $3600 in say, 3 installments, over 3 years (or some variation of this).
