October 10 & 11 - The Knights of Columbus collected $2600 for the mentally handicapped through our annual tootsie roll drive. Thank you to all who donated and to the individuals who volunteered to help collect donations and distribute tootsie rolls. 80 percent of the proceeds will go to the Lake Mary Center in Paola, KS and 20 percent is sent to the state council to fund the state basketball tournament for the Special Olympics.

Nativity Knights member Tim Plank presented a check for just under $2,000 to William Craig, President/CEO of LAKEMARY Center.
