KNIGHTS OF THE MONTH

December 2016

Matt Sykes

Most of you know Matt works for Meadows Farms Nursery as a project manager. Because of his job, we do not see Matt much in the summer. However, Matt is our secret weapon, in the winter. Matt has put in a lot of hours every Sunday for all of our Food drives, as well as Tree Sales. Last year, there were many times when Matt came to sell trees and he stayed with me for an entire day. Whenever I need something, I know that I can count on Matt to get it done. Matt has stepped up this month to provide the Nativity cutouts for the tree stand.

Craig Radcliff

Our Worthy DD has worked tirelessly to manage our first food drive for the St. Lucy project. Craig has meet with the leaders of the project, FRVW, and even Art Bennett who is the head of Catholic Charities to make this happen. Additionally, Craig has made multiple deliveries of food from HTC to the warehouse over the last two weeks. We now have over 12,300 lbs. of food, and were the largest contributor to the project in its history.

FAMILIES OF THE MONTH

December 2016

Mario Olivera and Sons

Mario joined the Knights with me 5 going on 6 years ago. We attended all of the degree ceremonies together at that time. Mario has been faithfully serving the United States Air Force. He has recently retired, and I have already a huge increase in his giving of his time to the council. Mario and his sons have faithfully come to tree sales for the last 5 years. Every year Mario brings his boys on the day after Thanksgiving to unload the truck of Christmas Trees. This year, he beat me to the truck! When I got to the Church at 8:30, Mario was already there unloading trees. Thank you Mario for your dedication to the council.

Scott and Denise Rose

Scott and Denise came to all of the masses and sold out the Knights Christmas cards. This was a great idea to have them at all of the masses. Also, as it turns out, the cards were well received, and will become a new function for future years. We will also make the cards available in the Christmas Tree Shed.
