The 2019 Annual Golf Tournament sponsored by Vallejo Council 874 was held on September 21,2019 at Blue Rock Spring Golf Course (West).  Brother Alex Ragonton (PFN, PGK) served as the Tournament Director and as in the past had very successfully handled the event.  A fairly good number of golfers participated in the tournament.  Additional details on the tournament results will be published on this site later.  Meanwhile, below are pictures of participating golf players (and organizers).

2018 Golf Tournament

by Brother Alex Ragonton

We had another successful golf tournament.  Although the net proceeds were not as good as the previous years, the event gave us another opportunity to work as a team and achieve the results that we set out to accomplish. The lesser number of players than planned is attributable to conflict in schedules with other organizations that also hold tournaments.  Iíll try to do a better job coordinating the schedule next year.  Nevertheless, we once again exemplified the principles of charity by virtue of our donation of money, goods and time, and fraternity and unity by the display of outstanding teamwork throughout the various phases of this worthwhile project.  It is a big win for our council and those that will benefit from the funds that we raised.


As always, the crew at Christopher Hall that set up for the reception, prepared the food and did the after care did an outstanding job.  The crew included Ric Umali, Modesto Superticioso, Tony McGrath, Anthony Mills, Frank Palmaymesa, Alex Lacanilao, WGK Benny Beltran (who also did the photography detail), WDD Hector Poblete and others.  Alex Agan and Jessie Nuval helped wherever they were needed, including the golf course where they set up the banner, picking up the steaks for Travis and assisting the reception crew.  Registration and welcoming crew at the golf course were Sonny Santos, Ed Lim, Alex Lacanilao, Benny Beltran, Dani Ignacio, Hector Poblete, Pepe Nacionales, James Lake and others.  The two scorers, Sonny Santos and Pepe Nacionales did a commendable job with their calculators. 


Lastly, but not the least, three of our council ladies, Lydia Palmaymesa, Goodie Nacionales and Elsa Ragonton, spent the whole day at the Christopher Hall making sure that things went smoothly. We sincerely appreciate your support ladies.


Again, to all who helped and supported this project in any manner, please give yourself a pat in the back for a job well done.  If I missed mentioning your name and you were present at the sites on the tournament day or for your in-kind donation, please accept my apology for the oversight.  Thank you all!!!

Safe Environment Program

To protect our children from potential predators, the Knights of Columbus and the Diocese of Sacramento entered into a memorandum of understanding that states: "Members of the Knightsof Columbus who wish to volunteer in parish activities nd/or K of C activities on parish property must comply with the following requirements:

  • Undergo a live scan finger printing
  • Complete the "Shield the Vulnerable" training available online at no cost

These requirements apply to all Knights participating in activities on parish property.  The requirements do not apply when attending council or assembly meetings on parish grounds.  To facilitate the finger printing requirement, a mobile Live Scan Unit will provide finger printing services on March 18, 2017, 10:00am to 11:00am at Fr Garrigan Rm, St Basil Church.  Cost is $12 per member if at least 15 members participate.


The online training is available at this site - http://www.shieldthevulnerable.org.  Be sure to indicate your parish and Council name and number on the form.
