Ladies Auxillary

The Ladies Auxiliary formed in February 1997 with 12 members. Over the years our membership has increased to around 30 members from various fields of work experience and backgrounds. The mission of the Ladies Auxiliary is to promote the welfare of the Council #7968, to promote social and intellectual association among its members, to assist in Catholic activities and civic or worthy charitable undertakings and to assist Council #7968 in the maintenance of the Council Hall.

Meetings are the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 PM at the Knights of Columbus Hall on Highway 90 East in Crestview. Dues are only $12 annually.

We sponsor a free Senior Bingo quarterly where members of the community and local nursing homes meet for games and a free lunch provided by the Ladies. Participants anticipate these outings for the socialization they enjoy as well as the opportunity to win prizes.

Our big annual projects are the Charity Bunco and the Christmas Bazaar. The proceeds go to worthwhile local charities such as Sacred Heart Neonatal Unit, The Catholic Care Center, The Crestview Pregnancy Center, Shelter House, Fisher House and many others.

We collect toiletries and visit the VA Hospital in Biloxi, Mississippi to play Bingo and visit with patients.

We assist the Knights with the charity spaghetti dinners and help make goodie bags for OLV children which are given out after the Christmas liturgies.

Other activities occur as needs dictate or members desire.

Membership is open to any woman whose husband, father, brother or son is a member in good standing of the Knights of Columbus. Contact any member or call Penny Lakatos for more information.
