On Saturday evening, October 24, 2015, Knights of Columbus Council 14360 will host its Fourth Annual Columbus Day Macaroni Dinner at 5:30 p.m. in the Great Room of St. Matthew Church in Norwalk. The fourth edition of the dinner, which is open to all, promises to be another fun and successful night, with delicious Italian food, great company, and a 50/50 raffle.
“Our Columbus Day Dinners have historically been complete sellouts,” reflected Grand Knight George Ribellino, Jr. “We have had well over 200 people attend the last two dinners, and we are looking forward to once again hosting a big crowd this time around.”
The Columbus Day dinners have enabled the council to raise much- needed funds over the last several years to help others in the area community. In addition, a tradition begun two years ago with attendees bringing canned goods on the night of the dinner has really helped keep the St. Matthew’s Food Pantry well stocked. Continuing this tradition, the Knights are asking all those attending this year’s dinner to consider bringing a non-perishable food item for the food pantry. Anyone who brings an item will also be eligible for a door prize.
The cost of the dinner is $18.00 for adults and $7.00 for children 10 and under.Those who cannot attend but would still like to help Council 14360 raise money to help others may also make a donation of any amount (checks should be made payable to Knights of Columbus Council 14360 and can be left in the St. Matthew Parish Office).
All are most welcome to attend this year’s dinner, but don’t wait; this is a very popular event! To reserve your space, click here for an order form. After completing it, return it with payment at your earliest convenience to the St. Matthew Parish office (no later than October 19).
See you at St. Matthew on October 24!
