Dues: Thanks to the 85% plus that have paid their 2021 dues. If you have not paid yet, please due ASAP. It would be a huge accomplishment for our council, which is one of the largest in state to have 100% paid dues the year we turn 100. To pay dues, mail to Jason Brentano @ 6938 Oakview St. Shawnee, Ks 66216. You can also go to our website and pay via credit card, which fee will be added. Otherwise, we will have to contact each of these knights throughout the year and remind them. Also, if you are mailing your dues or dropping them off at hall, be sure to put your name with it. Thank you
