The Calendars, which sell for $20 each, may be purchased from one of the Knights, and they are also available at Robinson's Floor Covering and Letsche's Bike Shop and Radio Shack in Cherokee.
Proceeds from calendar sales always go to a worthy local cause, and this year the proceeds will be distributed to the Christian Action Program (CAP) Food Pantry for the Needy and the Cherokee Youth Summer Ball Association (CYSBA). Five $200 scholarships to area High School seniors to put towards their post-secondary education are also given annually from the calendar proceeds.
In addition, the first of 60 drawings for $50 will take place on March 5, and drawings will take place six days a week for 10 weeks. At the conclusion of the 60 $50 drawings, there will be two additional drawings, with the winners each receiving $500.
Winners of all drawings will be listed in the Chronicle Times and announced on KCHE radio, and winners may pick up their checks at Robinson's Floor Covering.
