Knights in their temporal and spiritual needs; acting for the good of their country; and giving aid to widows, orphans, the sick and the poor.

Dexter Council #2959 History
Council was established in 1946 with 52 Charter Members. Martin Farrell was elected the First Grand Knight. The Council owned a building downtown which
housed Ziegler's Meat Market on the ground floor, and the KofC Hall above it. The building was next to the present day Dexter Pharmacy. The rent from the
meat market paid the mortgage. In 1978 through the efforts of many of the members, a new hall was built on Dexter-Chelsea Rd. As of 2009 the Council has a
membership of over 160 men.
