2017 has been a very productive year. The Men's Club has a very strong group of 45- 50 members whose purpose is to support Immaculate Conception Parish. Our major fund raising events include: Valentines Dance, Night at the Races, Golf Tournament, Fishing Tournament, and several poker tournaments.
Money raised from these events is invested back into our school, parish, and stewardship events. This past year:
1: approximately $3000 went toward our scholarship fund for our 8th graders going to catholic high schools.
2. $2400 per year for 3 years has been designated to the Beyond Sunday campaign.
3. $2500 went toward the LED lighting project in the Church, school, and grounds.
Additional money went toward smaller Parish maintenance projects, Doughnut Sunday, Church sound system,
stewardship apartment bbq, Military Chaplains Fund, FOCUS Marines Foundation & more.
Men's Club Members have participated in many maintenance & support projects in 2017. Including:
Installation of LED lighting, handicap ramp, church bathroom improvements, tree trimming, cemetery maintenance,
new cemetery benches, supervision of parking lot resurfacing, tent set up for Parish picnic, parking lot assistance during events, auction item pick ups & the move of all auction items from garages to the gym, chicken dinner frying,
and many other smaller projects.
The Men's Club wants to Thank all parishioners for their support of our fund raising events, and we hope that everyone will add some of our events to your 2018 calendar.
Lastly, the Men's Club is always looking for new full & part time members. Please consider supporting our Parish,
and becoming a Men's Club member. Contact:
