06-10-2023 – Special Olympics

On Saturday, June 10th from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm the Special Olympics is looking for the Knights to grill burgers, run the food from the grill to the serving area and serve 900 – 1,100 family members & friends at the north side of ISU’s Horton Fieldhouse. We broke the times down into two shifts (feel free to signup for both shifts if you would like). This signup is for our council. The other councils are filling additional slots.

If you prefer to only grill, run food, or be a server, please specify that after your name in the signup. Otherwise, we will assume you are good to fill any of these activities.

Please bring any questions to our next meeting on 6/6 or send an email to info@kofc6498.
