ABOUT OUR COUNCIL

St. Mary's Council #3790 was instituted on February 21, 1954.  Meetings were held in the basement of St.
Mary's School.  Ground for the current K of C Hall was broken on September 13, 1957, with a dedication
banquet held on January 26, 1958.  Council #3790 has been involved in all phases of activities promoted
by the Knights of Columbus on all levels.  Fund-raising activities include the annual Tootsie Roll Drive for
the mentally handicapped, Lenten fish fries that benefit various charities and causes, and many others.  
We take great pride in our service to the church, school, youth and community.
