January 2022

Brothers,


I hope you had a Happy and Healthy Christmas and I wish you a Happy, Healthy, Safe and Prosperous New Year. Let’s hope 2022 is a better year than 2021.


Thanks to Lou Femiano and all the Knights who helped with cooking the breakfast for the Breakfast with Santa at Saint Veronica’s on December 4th . Thank to the Ladies Auxiliary and the Knights who helped for the Breakfast with Santa at the Council on December 11th. Both of these events were successful and the children and their families.


Thanks to DGK Phil Capasso, PGK Lou McGraw, and LAP Roni Pavelko for their work hosting the Adult Christmas Party. The food was good and we all had a great time.


Thanks to PGK Bob Clifford and his family for coordinating the Christmas Baskets and Christmas Gifts for families in need on December 18th. This year we provided and delivered 160 Food Baskets and 27 Christmas Family Gifts. Thank you to PGK Angelo Massaro for providing the routes for delivery of these baskets and gifts. It makes me proud to have so many Knights and volunteers involved in executing this mission in helping families in need. In the New Year, I look forward to our Council hosting more of these fundraising events.


I would like to give a special thanks to PGK Lou McGraw for his work on bringing heroes home for the holidays. Lou worked selling raffle tickets and pins and raised over $7000.00 and these funds provided for 14 of our service men and women to be home with their families for the holidays. I congratulate Lou for all the work he did to make this happen.


Thanks to PGK Bob Westrich for hosting the Old Timer’s Day. Although I could not attend, I heard it was fun.
