Board of Directors Election
Each year at the Sask K of C Charitable Foundation Annual Meeting, the delegates are asked to elect two members to the Board of Directors. This year, Shawn Scherr and Harvey Granatier are up for re-election. IPSD Chris Bencharski will be the Returning Officer for nominations and the election. If anyone wishes to have their name stand for election to the Board of Directors or has questions about the nomination process, please contact IPSD Chris by phone (306) 236 4182.
Memorial donations to the Foundation continue to be an excellent means of expressing the sympathy of loss to the family of a friend, member or loved one. Upon receipt of the donation, the deceased member’s name will be placed on our website for a year and included within our Memorial Mass celebration. The Foundation will also forward a certificate to the spouse or next of kin indicating that you and/or your Council has made a donation (no amount is shown) and their name will be included in a special Memorial Mass service.
It is acceptable to make a Memorial donation and also have the funds credited to any Endowment including the K of C Vocation Endowment.
The following individuals were remembered through a Memorial donation during this past week:
Dan Scherr Saskatoon
Mary Lucyshun Calgary
Lloyd Macknak Cupar
Ronald Ecker Saskatoon
Julia Granatier Saskatoon
Mark Bellavance Battleford
William Smith Regina
Ron Budd Dorintosh
