KNIGHTS OF THE MONTH

November 2017

Kevin Corcoran

Kevin worked every Knights project and more in November. He volunteered during both of the build days for the Habitat for Humanity project. He was a great help on both days, he assisted the lunch team during the build days by storing and transporting the tables and equipment for Habitat lunches. Later in the month, he was available three times with his pickup truck to move furniture for our Social Concerns ministry. He made multiple trips to pickup items and move them to a needy family. Kevin doesn’t wait to be asked, he jumps in and helps when he sees a need. He lives and demonstrates the tenets of our order with joy.

Robert Krupskas

Bob was prime mover on our initial fundraiser for the council. He worked with other brothers to accumulate thegrill equipment during the week and set it up for the weekend of grilling. Bob was a champion of our tent, providing encouragement and good cheer to all who worked with him. He came back the following week to cook again and serve over 300 burgers at our parish picnic. He was there at the very end, cleaning and putting away the equipment. Bob embodies the tenants of our order. His enthusiasm makes it fun to work with him on our worthy goals.
