Chamber Holds Ribbon Cutting for Knights of Columbus

The Knights of Columbus is a fraternal organization whose members live by their motto: Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism.

In the last 15 years, local Council 7258 has raised almost $50,000 for the Polk County Developmental Center, with another additional $7,500 going to Arc of Arkansas.

This council awards two $1,000.00 college scholarships to local high school seniors, each year. They provide support for the Fresh Start Pregnancy Resource Center here in Mena, Arkansas Special Olympics, and the Arkansas Basketball Shoot-out, just to name a few of the other charities supported by this council.

We are a local organization and proud to call Mena home. The Mena/Polk County Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting to welcome the Knights of Columbus to the chamber. For more information about the Knights of Columbus and their charities visit their Facebook page, Knights of Columbus.
