Each year, Council 13517 holds their annual poinsettia sale around the holidays to raise funds for worthy causes & charities in and around the IHM community. Not only does it serve as a fundraiser, but a reminder to Keep Christ in Christmas because each plant is delivered with this message. This year, in the face of the COVID pandemic, and with diminished attendance at masses, our Knights had to rethink their overall sales strategy for this event. It was decided early on to create an order form to distribute throughout the Parish and School, thereby allowing families access to what are always beautiful Christmas poinsettias. These order forms were sent in the IHM church bulletin and also with the Thursday school folders. All orders had to be submitted by December 4th, and the Council guaranteed delivery over the weekend of December 12, 2020. Through our action, the Knights were able to deliver over 70 beautiful plants to all who requested at $10.00 each, with all profits slated to benefit the Immaculate Heart of Mary School. Our families are key to our continued success and paramount to what the Knights of Columbus is all about, and once again our Council rose to the challenge!
