Our Activities

    • Christmas Baskets It has been a tradition for our Council, 1170, to distribute Christmas Baskets of food to those people in our community that are in need of our help during the Christmas holidays.  The need is great and our goal this year is ambitious.  Our goal is to provide 80 baskets this holiday season.   However, we need everyone's help to do this.   Items can be donated at anytime on or before December 15 (Better sooner than later). These donations can be dropped off at the KC Clubhouse at 6:30pm on the 1st of 3rd Thursdays of the month or you can contact Perry Pazdernik (715)715-341-7052 or Rhody Przekurat at (715) 572-4105 for alternate drop off times.
