Dewey. ǰ Ĵ ¢ǯ
I taught within the Apache Junction Unified School District teaching at the upper elementary level

for three years and Florence Unified School District teaching Departmentalized Science to 5th grad-
ers (we moved here mid-school year). On March 14, 2020, “Pi Day”, we moved into our home here

in Dewey.
I became a Knight when we were part of Our Mother of Confidence in San Diego back in
As a Knight, I participated and served as a catechist while at St. Andrew By The Bay when
we lived in Maryland. I have lived and am living a life of service in that I am a U.S. Marine Corps

veteran (Training N.C.O.), a public school teacher, and a Knight of Columbus. While I do keep con-
nected with a few of my Marine Corps brothers, the closest organization I have found to a meaning-
ful fraternity are the Knights of Columbus, and here I have been trying to make a difference just

like all of you.

I will bring an abundance of experience to my new Council. Other than teaching and train-
ing adults, as stated, I teach elementary and middle grades and can be a catechist if I am need-
ed. Maybe, just as importantly, I can create some *yummean multi-berry pancakes. My family

flips out over them!”
William (Bill) Cebula. I am originally from NW Kansas. I worked at Ball Aerospace in Boulder,
CO for 31 years and after retiring moved to Chadron, NE, a “one stop light town”. I worked there
at Chadron HQ for Nebraska National Forest. I have children in California. I lived in Payson for

Congratulations to not only to the new members, but also to the two Knights who recruited these members. The sponsoring Knights have these following responsibilities:

In the event the recruiting Knight is not able or interested in providing sponsorship, Membership assigns a Knight who has previously expressed interest in providing sponsorship to new members of the Council.

The Sponsor is responsible for providing one on one guidance and direction to the new Knight as the Knight continues the journey through the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Degrees within the Council. Responsibilities include, but may not be limited to the following:

The Sponsor is responsible for attending the Admissions Meeting with the Candidate whenever possible for providing support and reinforcement of the Committee’s overview of the Knights of Columbus and Council Programs, Committees and Activities.
Introduction to Council Officers for understanding role and responsibilities of elected positions within the Council.
 Introduction to Degree Team for understanding expectations involving the journey from 1st to
2nd to 3rd degrees.
 Utilizing the Shining Armor Award Card for reinforcement of expectations the first year and for tracking progress.
 Providing an overview of Council Programs with introductions to Program Directors for which the Knight has an interest in participation.

Frequent contact to ensure the new Knight is attending meetings, especially the first three meetings, is involved in Programs of special interest, and is pleased with their personal experience.

Attend exemplifications whenever possible for supporting the Knight’s journey through knighthood.

Membership Dues
All of you have been contacted by our Worthy Financial Secretary, Earl Boggler, regarding membership dues and the need for “ALL MEMBERS” to pay their dues promptly at the start of the calendar year. I want to stress the importance of paying your dues ASAP so that Brother Earl and our Treasurer, Doug Becker can pay our bills in a timely fashion.
Why do we have to pay dues, and where does our dues money go?
  • It pays for our “State Per Capita” charges for being a council in the State of Arizona.
  • It pays for our “Supreme Per Capita” charges for being a council under the Supreme Umbrella (501-C8) for fraternal organizations.
  • It pays for our council expenses (general supplies, mailing expenses, banking fees, P.O. Box, required liability insurance, our Web-site fee, etc.)
  • It pays for supplies and materials ordered through Supreme. (membership cards, recruitment material, membership forms, shipping costs for materials ordered, etc.)
  • It pays literally for all the costs of operating our council so that the money we raise for charity all goes to charity!!!!!
    • Please pay your dues, if you haven’t already paid them.
    • You can pay quarterly  ($9.00) if the annual amount ($36.00) is outside your budget. 
    • If you are dealing with any disability, contact Brother Earl about a possible waiver of your dues.


When Fr. McGivney founded the Knight of Columbus in New Haven, Connecticut in1882 he had two primary goals. The first goal was to establish a council in every parish in the country. The second goal was to make sure that every Catholic man was invited to join the Knights of Columbus.

Why? Fr. McGivney believed very strongly that witnessing our faith in action was an integral part of being a Catholic Man. He founded the Knights of Columbus to call “every Catholic man” to witness their faith in service to: their church, their community, their family, the youth in their community, and their council!

He also wanted to provide for the welfare of our member’s widows and children. Only by being a member, can a Catholic man take advantage of Our Order’s “excellent” Insurance Program!

It is the responsibility of each of us knights to follow the direction of Fr. McGivney and personally invite every Catholic man that we know to consider joining the Knights of Columbus!

All it takes is: (1.) identifying appropriate candidates, (2.) explaining to them what the Knights are all about, (3.) encouraging them to join Our Order, and (4.) being a mentor who walks them through the application process, takes them to their degrees and encourages their active involvement in our council.

The requirements of a potential candidate are: (1.) must be a male, (2.) must be 18 years old or older, and (3.) must be a “practical” Catholic. In any given parish only about 12% of the eligible men are Knights. That means that there are many men who could be asked to join.

Please consider asking your son, grandson, nephew, cousin, father, grandfather, uncle, etc. to join you in being an active Knight of Columbus!!

Membership Co-Chairmen:  Jerry Koenig and Thomas Warner

“Congratulations” to Bro. Wayne Theobald and Bro. Deacon John MIckel for completing their 2nd & 3rd Degrees in the Order on October 28th in Flagstaff. Also “THANKS” to Bro. Tom Warner and Bro. Earl Boggle for taking them to the degree on behalf of the council!
