There are several upcoming events in December. Please find details below and help us get the word out to all Members.
December 1 – Memorial Service, This Tuesday Evening
On behalf of the Knights of Columbus Dallas Council 799, we invite you to join us on Tuesday, December 1st for the Memorial Service honoring all Deceased Knights of Council 799, with a special remembrance of the decedents from the past year. This year we will not have Liturgy of the Eucharist, but will have the mass readings and service at the upstairs hall of the KayCee Club (10110 Shoreview Road, Dallas, TX 75238). Following the Service, we will host a reception to continue our fellowship – with light hors d’oeuvres will be served.
This event will replace our regular meeting for the month of December. Guests are welcome to attend. We will honor all the Knights of our Council who have passed, and request that attire be appropriate for a wake service. (no flip flops and tank tops please).

All Members and their spouses are invited. We will have a dinner and an awards ceremony to honor distinguished Knights from our Council.

Kids’ Christmas Party – December 13
Bring your kids and join your fellow Knights and their families for the annual 799 Kids’ Christmas Party on Sunday, December 13th from 3-5pm in the upper hall of the KayCee Club.
Your kids will enjoy ornament decorating, Christmas cookie decorating, making a Nativity craft, and a coloring station, as well as games, including Snowman Bean Bag Toss, Christmas Tree Ring Toss and Pin the Hat on the Polar Bear. Additionally, an elf will be on hand for all of your kids’ balloon twisting desires. Also, a certain someone may be stepping away from his workshop briefly to make an appearance.
If you have any questions or would like to volunteer for set-up or clean-up or have junior high or high school aged children who would like to serve as volunteers during the party, please contact Ken Riney at firstname.lastname@example.org.
