SK Dennis E Gawlik PGN, PFN

Our Bill Mulderink Knight of the Year Award is our way of annually recognizing a Knight that has demonstrated continuous and unselfish Fraternal and Charitable works and a true commitment to the Knight of Columbus and our Council.

This year’s recipient certainly makes a difference and leads the way! He is a very active Knight, attending and participating in our monthly officer and council meetings and at various activities and program events. He fills roles as an Officer, Program Director, Chairman, and Volunteer. He is always willing to lend a hand to help out. This year when our service programs were overhauled becoming Faith in Action, he went out and gathered all the information available and presented it to the council even making a display that can be used for recruiting, council outreach and educational needs. His involvement with the St. Emily’s Food Drive has earned the council the Knights of Columbus Food for Families Reimbursement Award, earning a reimbursement check of $300.00 that was donated to the St. Alphonsus Food Pantry. He is information driven and always has facts and figures available! He continues to do an outstanding job with our various youth programs including adding the Annual Spelling Bee back into the councils mix this year. He keeps our budget in mind with the youth activities awards that are now able to be used across all the events and calendar years. As the editor and publisher of our newsletter, he was recognized this year by earning first place during the 2018 Knights of Columbus Illinois State Convention!

Please join me in congratulating this years Bill Muldernick Knight of the Year Award winner, SK , PGK and PFN Dennis Gawlik!
