We just received a phone call from our Grand Knight, Bill Davis, as he has been attending the State Convention of the Missouri Knights of Columbus.. He stated the following awards that Council 9981 received at the State Convention:

Council 9981 was awarded First Place in the State for the best Council newsletter

Council 9981 was second in the State for the dollar amount that was raised in the 2016 DD Tootsie Roll Drive

Council 9981 was third in the State for the number of dollars that were raised per member of the Council

Our Grand Knight, Bill Davis, would like to extend his appreciation to all of the members of Council 9981 in making the above happen. Without all of your dedication and devotion to the Knights of Columbus and to Council 9981 this amount of recognition State-wide would never have happened. You all need to give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done! Thanks for all of your work in the past fraternal year. We have an awesome Council and you should be proud of all of your accomplishments.
