CHAMBER CHAT – January 2022

Written by Admin

January 11, 2022


Despite the up and down weather and the continuing COVID chaos, our community has managed to find ways
to celebrate the holiday season. Heartfelt thanks to all who made our ‘Hot Dang, It’s Christmas!’ Parade and
Santa Party a fun time. Happy New Year, and now it’s time to get it in gear!

Year 2022 kicks off in a special way on Friday, January 28, 2022, with the 50th Anniversary of the Wallis
Knights of Columbus Wild Game Supper. David Hubenak of the Wallis Knights of Columbus recounts the
history of this homegrown event. From its humble beginning 50 years ago in a small two room schoolhouse
that served as the KC Hall, Council 3793 has transformed this annual fundraising event for local charities into
something special. The annual Wild Game Supper is now considered one of the largest in the state of Texas.
Dedicated Council members with culinary experience prepare wild game and other exotic dishes for hundreds
of event participants on a donation basis each year.

It all began with a modest raffle consisting of only five rifles and shotguns and has evolved into Grand Raffle
status featuring as many as 140 quality rifles and shotguns. This year’s raffle will include a specially engraved
“Knights of Columbus Commemorative 50th Anniversary” rifle.

The Council continues to honor, reward, and recognize area clergy men and women regardless of religious
affiliation. It also consults with County and local law-enforcement personnel each year to identify one
individual to be the deserving recipient of the Council’s “Peace Officer of the Year” award. In addition to the
Wild Game Supper, there’s the popular Gun Raffle and “Penny Potluck” drawing, along with other games.

Please join the Wallis Knights of Columbus for the “Golden Year Wild Game Supper” on Friday, January
28, 2022. Doors open at 6pm and dinner starts at 7pm at the Columbus Club Hall, 703 Columbus Road, Wallis,
Texas 77485. All are welcome to enjoy this one-of-a-kind event and support local charities! As preparations
are being made to host this event, the Council is mindful of the COVID-19 precautions.
