Mug with stars

Changes have been made to the sale of mugs. Welcome Ladies!! Yes, any member on the Ladies Auxiliary, married to a Knight, or relative of a Knight can order a mug. Cost of mugs have gone up to $50 and your first and last name will be engraved on your mug along with a number. The number will be in sequence thus the next available number. No special numbers are allowed.

Special incentives have been added too. After you buy a mug you then qualify to earn up to 4 stars engraved on your mug! Below are the steps on receiving your stars. Each star is given out in the following order after you buy a mug.

  1. Fundraising Star” To earn this star you must chair (not co-chair) one or multiple functions/programs within one fiscal year (June – May) that generates $1000 towards our local charities or programs. Functions/programs chaired before buying a mug don’t count towards your totals.

  2. Helping Hand Star” To earn this star you must help with 12 functions/programs within one fiscal year (June – May) that generates monies towards our local charities or programs. This star is only obtainable after you have received the “Fundraising Star”. Functions/programs you have helped with before receiving the “Fundraising Star” don’t count towards this star.

  3. Mentorship Star” To earn this star you must sign up 3 new members within one fiscal year (June – May) and mentor them. Only “new” members are recognized towards this star. No reactivation, transfer, or reinstatements.

  4. Leadership Star” To earn this star you must first complete in getting your first three stars. Then become or have been a Grand Knight or Ladies Auxiliary President and lead your organization for one full fiscal year.

Functions, Programs, Charities, and Activities that are mentioned in the first two stars pertain to Council level Functions, Programs, Charities, and Activities. State and Supreme Functions, Programs, Charities, and Activities don’t count.

Attention members and Ladies that are not of Council 788. To get your first two stars the functions have to be raised and earned for Council 788 funds/activities. The other two stars can be earned from your home council.

The special incentives are designed to help keep us involved in helping others within our local communities through our beloved councils. To get all 4 stars is a challenge, but one that each and everyone of us are capable of doing.
