Charleston Wrap Fundraiser Announcement

Please stay tuned for our exciting fall fundraiser kicking off next week. We will send home the Charleston Wrap catalogs on Monday, October 2.

West Point Football Experience

On Saturday, November 11 St. Rita Knights of Columbus is sponsoring a bus trip to West Point for the 12:00 p.m. game between Army and Duke. The stadium is on the campus of the United States Military Academy, situated on the banks of the Hudson River in the beautiful countryside of upstate New York. Enjoy a relaxed motor coach ride to the game and return. The $75 price includes your travel as well as a ticket (side line seats) to the game in iconic Michie Stadium. If you haven’t experienced a game at this venue, we assure you it is special, with a substantial entertainment value from the cadets and their rousing activities. Choppers transport the game ball from which Army Rangers parachute into the field! For more information or to fill out an order form, please see the event flyer. For questions, please contact Bill Murray via e-mail or at (203) 214.9188 or contact retired First Sergeant Leotis Tyson via e-mail or at (203) 623.6856. Reserve your tickets early.
