Knights of Columbus Council 8009
May - 2018 Council 8009 Grand Knight’s Message
Vivat Jesu! I hope this message finds you in good health and Spirits. I trust you spent your Memorial Day Remembering our Fallen Heroes!
Our Knight of the Month for May was Bob Lapenna. Bob has been an outstanding Knight in so many ways. He has been in charge of the Parish Food Ministry for the past couple years and has been planning, cooking and delivering 150 meals per week. Brother Bob and his wife Joan are Eucharistic Ministers. Please congratulate Brother Knight Bob when you see him!
Our Family of the Month was the Michael Deskins Family. Michael just recently became a First Degree member of our Council. I just met him at Mass a couple weeks ago and he told me he wanted to keep his family active in our Parish and Council. He mentioned both his children had just become Altar Servers. His wife also was joining some of the Parish Ministries. Brother Michael also indicated he wants to become active within our Council. Please congratulate Brother Knight Michael and his family when you see them!
We had another outstanding Tootsie Roll drive this year. A special thanks to Dale Grabenbauer and Marty Morano for Co-chairing one our favorite events of the year! Over ninety – 2 or 3 hour slots were covered by many, many Brother Knights . Marty and I presented two checks totaling over $5000 to the “ARC” and to their “Scout Troop.”
Fraternally, and Vivat Jesu!
Bob Kwiecinski Grand Knight
