FOB/AP Lightning Chapel Enhancements
A member of our Council, Sir Knight George Walsh, essentially built a chapel at Advising Platform (AP) Lightning (formerly known as FOB Lightning). PGK Greg Suchanek has been assigned to the same location and Brother Walsh asked that he take over for him and improve the Chapel as much as possible. In close consultation with Father (Major) Moras and Chaplain (Captain) Hartenberg, PGK Suchanek developed the following to build upon George's good work.
1. Paint the wood railing of the "porch" area, and the rear entrance (used by the Priest / Chaplain and their assistants).
2. Have made and erect a sign for the Chapel . . . the current suggested name is "Resolute Faith Chapel"
3. Emplace 2' x 2' HESCO barriers around the sides and rear of the chapel, prepared for future planting of rose and other bushes. HESCO barriers are cloth and steel wire frame containers that are filled with dirt to protect from direct and indirect (rocket / mortar in this case) fire. They also make pretty good planters. The plan is to mix the dirt with natural local fertilizer (read: manure) in preparation for the prime planting season next spring.
4. In April of 2018 (after Greg leaves) pass the project to the next Knight), plant the bushes in the prepared
The total cost looks to be between $600 and $1000 - the exact amount it will depend on the prices quoted for the sign and price of the plants at the time of planting
We are asking for any donations you would like to make to this effort to support our Christian / Catholic chapel at AP Lightning. Any funds that we raise that are not used for this project will be donated to Malteser International (a charity operated by the Sovereign Military Order of Malta) in the name of our council, with a specific request to be used in Malteser's efforts in Uganda (this is because a number of the parishioners at AP are members of the Ugandan guard force that provide local security to the base.)
A longer range is to introduce them and bring them into the Knights of Columbus.
