Knights on Bikes 2017 - 2018

Washington State Knights on Bikes

Greetings Brother Knights and once again Happy New Year….


Here is the way the Southeast side is shaping up for 2018 KonB events:


April 28th Blessing of the Bikes Christ the King church in Richland. Msgr Champoux Has graciously given us the upper parking lot again this year. This will be our 3rd Blessing in the Tri Cities, year one we had 17 bikes, last year we had 34 bikes, this year we are going to make a bold proclamation and advertise the event as Southeast Washington’s largest bike blessing. We are also talking about a kids corner so they can bring their bikes, perhaps invite Special Olympics bicycle race team, food vendor and parish ministries are also in the possibility mix.  These simple KofC/KonB coffee and cookie events are a great way to get some positive KofC/KonB exposure and share our faith and fraternity in our parish and community ….. I would be happy to help anyone put one together.


WA KofC State Convention in Pasco May we are planning on having a Knights on Bikes information booth and planning on taking a KonB family photo so bring your vests….more to come on time and place.


West Richland Hogs and Dogs June 15-16 we are planning to have a KofC/KonB information booth again this year and perhaps a couple bike entries in the show as well, again another way to share the faith. Last year I spend most of the day talking to members of the CMA (Christian Motor Cycle Assn.) who had a booth at the end of our row. I had probably 25-30 members stop by our booth all wanting know what a Knight on a Bike was and why do Catholics call themselves Christian?  Yes it was a work out but I got to talk to several fallen away Catholics and that made my day.


Veterans Day Parade West Richland November 11th, I am planning on entering 3307/1174/WA KonB in the parade again this year it was great fun for all. And an honor.


Benton City Christmas parade of lights, this would be a perfect venue for a Keep Christ in Christmas entry and would like to give it a try?


Good and Holly Saint Christopher patron Saint of travelers we ask for your prayers on our behalf all our Brother Knights on Bikes ,friends and family who will be traveling the roads this new year, may the Good Lord send our guardian angels to protect us and keep us safe. Amen…..


Bike build still moving forward I just posted a couple pictures and comments on my Facebook page. More pictures and progress report coming this week. Also if you haven’t already….. Check out our KonB page on the Washington State Knights of Columbus web site under state family tab. Brother Steve Snell has also been doing an outstanding job of posting our newsletters pictures and posts in the state bulletin. Cool……..
