Officer Natalie Corona, Color Corps Funeral Service

Officer Natalie Corona was a 22 year old Police Officer with the Davis Police Department. She was ambushed and killed on January 10, 2019. Officer Corona had completed her Field Training Officer Training just before Christmas, and was on patrol by herself as a full fledged police officer. Officer Corona dreamed of being a police officer and following in her father’s footsteps. Her father, Merced Corona, a retired Sherif’sb Sgt. from Colusa County Sheriff’s Office, is a Sir Knight with Santa Maria Assembly #1959 in Marysville, and a 3rd Degree member (PGK) of John Paul II Council #14112 in Arbuckle.

The Worthy District Master TW has authorized this call out in full traditional regalia (tux, chapeau, cape), as Merced Corona (Officer Natalie Corona’s father) has requested this as he is familiar with the traditional regalia. We are to honor the family’s request, and we are to honor Officer Natalie Corona.

Commanders, please send this information out to your Color Corps members immediately.

Faithful Navigators, please send this out to your assemblies that anyone attending that wants to participate in the procession, not in the Color Corps, please be in Tuxedo, with social baldric and white gloves.

Let’s have a good showing to show support for the Corona Family, and for support of Law Enforcement. In this day and age, Law Enforcement needs all the support they can get.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call, email, or text me.

Thank You,

Help Our Numbers Make a Difference 

It would also be a good time to check in with your -- check! -- to pay your annual membership dues and look over your calendar for the last year. What kinds of community, church, youth and other services did you do? These hours all count towards a special report your Financial Secretary needs to submit. So, plan to "knock his socks off" and turn in your information early. Also, if you know of someone who plans to retire from the Knights of Columbus membership, encourage them to talk to the Financial Secretary to make this a reality. Happy Holidays and Happy Birthday Jesus. For help finding the appropriate forms, go to: http://www.kofc.org/un/en/members/resources/forms/council.html and look for the category of "Administrative Forms". Then, go to the Form #1728 Annual Survey of Fraternal Activity and #1728A Survey of Fraternal Activity Individual Member Worksheet. Hope this helps.

Knights around the country send support to Wildfire victims

Reach Prospects Electronically!

Worthy Brothers,

Online Membership is allowing us to reach younger men where they are:  on their cell phones, tablets, and computers.  Statewide, over 250 men have joined the Order online so far this Columbian Year.  However, many other men have expressed interest in learning more about the Knights but were not quite ready to pay the $30 dues and join Online.

Now we have a tool to utilize that will automatically invite a Prospect to join Online and send him weekly messages about the Knights of Columbus.  Supreme is offering us automated, online marketing software called “Marketo”.  Each Council can request a Lead Generation Program for use at special events, conferences, and in-person prospecting opportunities.  Think of it as aDigital Prospect Card that will automatically send a weekly informational email to men who sign up!  Go to http://info.kofc.org/pagerequest.html  The page request form automatically sends your Membership Team an email with all the information they need to create the program.  In 2-4 days, the council receives a custom URL, available on any device, and the Lead Generation Program is ready to use.

When you use the link above, you will see this simple page:

Once your Council receives its Lead Generation Program, the page that a Prospect will complete asks only for First Name, Last Name, and Email.  You will need to use your laptop, pad, or Smart Phone to allow Prospects to sign up.  (Note: It is NOT intended to be sent out via email directly to Prospects.)

Once form is filled out, a prospect immediately receives a customized email from Council with link to join the Knights of Columbus online: 

The prospect is also enrolled in a nurture drip-email campaign, and will receive additional information weekly.

Finally, the Council receives a copy of all contacts enrolled via their custom “Marketo” form.

Then, bring a laptop, pad, or smart phone to all of your Council’s Faith In Action events and have one of your Brother Knights help men use your Council’s Digital Prospect Card.

Keep in mind that you should continue to offer the “You Were Born A Man, You Become A Knight” Online Membership card (Form #10536) to men when you are not using the Digital Prospect Card to sign them up via an electronic device.

Remember the December Challenge:  “Become A Knight Before Christmas.” (or at least by New Year’s Day)  Each Council was challenged to bring in one more Brother by 12/31/18.  Give your Council a Christmas present:  bring in a new Brother!

Please forward this message to any Brother Knight who may choose to use it to help build your Council. 

Yours in Service,

Michael Brault
California State Membership Director

Help Hurricane Michael Victims

Dear Brother Knights,  

Thanks to your help, Knights accomplished so much in the wake of Hurricane Florence.

Now, your help is again urgently needed.

Hurricane Michael has battered Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas, and it’s heading northeast.

As we send this email, more than 1 million homes have been damaged. Some are completely submerged by water, others completely flattened by 155mph winds or caught in uncontrolled fires. Hazardous conditions have closed off roads and cell towers have toppled, leaving thousands cut off from communication and help.

It’s the strongest hurricane to hit Florida's panhandle ever, and the strongest to hit Georgia since 1898. And in the Carolinas, 50-55 mph wind gusts and flash flooding are tearing through areas not yet recovered from Florence.

Our brother Knights, their families and communities need your support. No matter how much you give, your generosity and prayers can help us meet their needs in the days ahead.

Please DONATE TODAY. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go directly to relief efforts.
