The Knights of Columbus is a  Catholic Men's Fraternal organization with a primary function of Charity, Unity, Fraternity & Patriotism.

The main purpose is Charity.

The Knights have a monthly meeting that begins with prayer. The main meeting business is to determine which Marshall County charity need we are able to support at that time. The total available funds come from sale of Fish dinner on each Friday of Lent and our Charity Golf tournament on the first Saturday in June.

On a yearly average we earn and donate eight to ten thousand dollars. We have an additional special weekend fund raising one weekend each year that collects an average of $2000, all of which goes to Marshall County Exceptional Center.
