Council Summer Family Picnic
Grab your favorite drink, slap on some sunscreen, and get ready to have fun in the sun for the whole family!
Join us for our second annual Summer Family Picnic.
- When: Saturday, August 24
- Time: 4:00 – 8:00 PM
- Where: Prairie Point Community Park, 4120 Plainfield Road, Oswego, IL
This year’s picnic is located at the Prairie Point Community Park, which offers fun for the family and kids of all ages. The park includes a Kids Splash Park, concrete skate/skateboard park, basketball courts, baseball fields, and plenty of space to fly kites! We have reserved the large pavilion, which means the picnic is held rain or shine.
The council will provide Hamburgers, Hot Dogs, and Brats. However, if you would like to bring something to share, you are invited to bring whatever you wish. This year’s picnic Chairmen are Kevin and Kurt Roentgen. Please reach out to them if you have questions about the event.

2019 Tootsie Roll Drive
When you see Knights in yellow vests that read “Helping People with Intellectual Disabilities,” you should smile. When these Knights are holding their bright cans and collecting donations around Oswego, they are helping to recognize the dignity of every person.
For every donation, each donor is offered a piece of Tootsie Roll candy by the Knight present. Because of these little gifts of appreciation, the “Campaign for People with Intellectual Disabilities” is frequently referred to as the “Tootsie Roll Drive.” It is a popular and successful fundraiser conducted by Knights of Columbus councils across America.
The St. Anne Council Tootsie Roll Drive is scheduled for Friday, September 13 and Saturday, September 14. Collection sites include:
- Jewel Osco: 2540 US-30, Oswego
- Jewel Osco: 3795 Orchard Road, Oswego
- Marclays Mini Mart: 55 Chicago Road, Oswego
- Riverview Diner: 1420 SE River Road, Montgomery
So the next time you see a Knight in a yellow vest asking for donations outside a grocery store, and you receive a Tootsie Roll, remember it’s more than a “Tootsie Roll Drive.” It’s a chance to provide people with intellectual and physical disabilities more resources to live a happy life.
Help us make this year’s Tootsie Roll Drive an even bigger success than last year. By donating an hour or two of your time, you can help those who are often treated harshly by society and often ignored, or worse.
