|CD of A to host Poetry Contest|
|Friday, May 09, 2014 8:00 PM|
Catholic Daughters of the America’s Delphos Court held their April Jitney Auction at the Knights of Columbus Hall. Members were generous with donations and purchasing of “auction numbers”, making it a successful fundraising event. Patricia Hablitzel became the newest member of CDofA as all of the group participated in renewing the CDofA pledge.
Catholic Daughters made a donation of a wall rosary to the St. John’s Benefit Auction and also made a donation to Children’s Medical Mission.
The importance of the donation was discussed as many children in Third World countries are need of medical services not available to them in their native land. CMM brings the children to the U.S. and finds them free medical care while they stay with host families. CMM has no paid staff, all services are donated and works entirely from donations from civic groups and generous people.
The next meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Knights of Columbus hall for the annual Poetry Contest Awards and potluck. Students and adults in the area who are local winners also have the opportunity to be winners at the state and national level.
Any Catholic women over the age of 18 are welcome to join the CDofA in their mission of serving the less fortunate and those in need across the world.
