The Cherokee Knights of Columbus have just started their 17th annual calendar sales.

The Knights will be selling 500 calendars through February 19th, and calendars may be purchased from any member of the Knights of Columbus, or at Robinson Floor Covering or Letsche's Bike Shop and Radio Shack.

On March 2 , the first of 60 drawings for $50 winners, which will occur six days a week, will be held. The winners will be printed in the Chronicle Times, and also announced daily on KCHE radio.

On Mother's Day, there will be two special drawings for $500 each, bringing the total for winners to $4000 for the year. All winners can pick up their checks at Robinson's Flooring.

Each year, the Knights give five $200 college scholarships to high school seniors from their cluster, and also donate $1500 to a needy cause.

Past recipients have included the Cherokee Public Library, the Cherokee Depot, CRMC Hospice, the Outreach Program at the MHI, the Wellness Center, the Parks and Recreation Department, Cherokee D.A.R.E. Program, the Veteran's Memorial, Bright Beinnings Day Care, the Bacon Aquatic Center, Gillette Park, Cherokee Community Center, Aurelia Community Center and the Martin's Access Land Acquisition.

This year, the $1500 will be divided ($750 each) between the CAASA House and Bright Beginnings Day Care.
