Fireworks 2017

Brother Knights (and family)
We will need lots of help with this years 4th of July Sales located immediately south of Greenfields Cafe, east of Lincoln on Hwy 2 (south from Walmart).  This is one of the council’s major fundraiser and as many of you know our funds all go back out to charitable causes including Church, Youth, Family, and Community.  Without this major fundraiser, we could not do so much good.  So, we need your help.  
Please click on this link and sign up for at least one shift to help at the fireworks stand.  But preferably sign up for more than one shift and more than one day. We REALLY need help with this major fundraiser for our council.  Invite your friends, relatives, children (minimum age 16) to help.  Be sure to enter your phone number and e-mail address when signing up.  If we do not obtain sufficient volunteers we will have to hire for vacant spots to be able to operate the sale of fireworks efficiently.
If any questions, feel free to e-mail me at

I will keep all updated on the volunteers that respond.  If you have a 4th Degree shirt consider wearing it but keep in mind it may be hot and you will be grilling so dress appropriately.
