Fr. Mick wants you to buy an IN K of C License Plate!
You can now purchase Indiana Knights of Columbus Charity Fund Inc. Special Group Recognition License Plates for your vehicles (cars, light trucks, RV, and motorcycles) from your local BMV office. The Indiana BMV requires 500 license plates be sold in the first two year or we risk having our special group recognition plate discontinued. As of 30 Nov 2021, we're short by 138 plates.
These plates can be ordered through IN.gov/BMV, at BMV branches, at BMV Connect kiosks, or BMV partial service providers. The plates will cost $30 in addition to applicable taxes and registration fees. A $15 supplemental fee and a $15 group fee is due for each Knights of Columbus plate that is purchased. The BMV will return the $15 group fee for each license plate sold to the IN K of C Charity Fund Inc. This plate may be personalized for an additional $45. The BMV will give you a credit if you buy a new plate before your current plate expires.
The IN K of C Charity Fund Inc is our 501(c)(3) established to help people in urgent need situations; disaster relief, coats for kids, food for families, ultrasound machines for crisis pregnancy centers, and other similar needs.
Other ways to donate to the IN K of C Charity Fund Inc are:
· Sending a check payable to "Indiana State Council Knights of Columbus Charity Fund Inc." and mailing it to me fund treasurer Paul Zielinski (4974 Roxbury Ct., Pittsboro, IN 46167).

· Amazon purchases. Sign in to Smile.Amazon.com and designate "Indiana State Council Knights of Columbus Charity Fund Inc" as your current charity.
All donations are greatly appreciated. The Indiana State Council Knights of Columbus Charity Fund Inc. does not have a paid staff or board, so operating expenses are minimal. All donations are used to help people in urgent need situations to the maximum extent possible.

Good evening. I hope this finds you and yours doing well.
The online version of the State Directory, FY 2021-2022 has been posted, in Word and PDF formats, on the State Council Google Drive. It can be accessed using your individual, State Council-provided credentials or the State Council-provided credentials for each Council and Assembly.
Please note that, due to security considerations, we cannot provide access to the online directory using a non-State Council-provided email address.
The online directory needs to be updated when anything is missing or anything changes, until next year's directory is published. An important reason for the online directory is to always have a version available where the data is current (e.g., councils who did not submit an IN-FORM1 and assemblies who did not provide a copy of their Form 186 can still make their current information available online even if it isn't in the printed copies).
Please use the form at the back of the directory or contact me via email, text or phone call with any changes.
· Position change for any position listed in the directory
· USPS and email address change
· Phone number change
· Meeting location/date/time change
· New/reactivated or deactivated council or assembly
Printed copies of the Directory are being mailed to:
· State Officers
· State Directors and Chairmen
· District Deputies
· Grand Knights
· Financial Secretaries
· Faithful Comptrollers
· General Agent (multiple copies for Field Agents)
Have a safe week and hope to see you in Indy in December!
~ Purchase your Indiana Knights of Columbus license plate when it's time for your personal car or truck / motorcycle / RV / commercial truck renewal! ~

At the Winter meeting, we will be letting everyone know what the theme for the year will be. We are working on those shows in the 1st quarter of 2022 (January, February and March) and that is where we need your help!
I can say that we will be working to highlight individual councils and Knights working within their ministries and the one we need assistance with is:
Give water to the thirsty.
If you know of a council or Knight engaged in this type of ministry, drop me a line.
Thanks for all you do!
