Grand Knight Bernie Kuta and his daughter Taylor participated in a distribution of coats with the Broncos Wives club on Oct 15. A second and larger distribution to children who were affected by the recent floods in northern Colorado will be held on Oct. 29 at Father Raney Council #2160 in Greeley. This event will also be attended by some of the Broncos’ wives. Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Denver has helped the Knights to contact families who could use the coats.

On October 3, 2013 the council voted to modify our bylaws immediately. Three items were changed. and have been submitted to Supreme and have been approved. The revised bylaws will be published and posted on our website.
1. Meetings updated : Business Meetings will continue to be on the 1st Thursday of each month, Planning Meetings are to be held on the 4th Thursday
2. Member Dues have been increased to $50 per annum (previously was $36) This amount will become effective for CY2014. (The amount is substantiated as being the amount that is needed for paying Supreme and State assessments plus council operating expenses that should not be taken out of "donations" or "revenue" from charitable events.)
3. The maximum amount that can be approved within the context of one meeting is now $250 (previously was $400). (The discussion was about making it a practice for people asking or funds to be prepared a month in advance of the need. Historically, the council has often been asked for the $400 without much justification or reasoning simply because that was the limit.)

This year the council officers are embarking to mentor new (and inactive) members for Council 1498. If you would like to volunteer as a mentor, please contact me.
Guidance is forthcoming, but generally a mentor will be tasked with taking a member under his wing and helping him become active and a blessing to the council. Getting involved in program committees, events, and learning about the KofC Organization. Proposers will also be asked to followup with new members to help them become integrated.
