COUNCIL RECOGNITION

 

KNIGHTS OF THE MONTH

January 2017

Dan Letson

For a herculean effort in "herding cats" during our annual trip to the National March for Life. Dan's rigorous and determined organization of this trip made it a huge success!

December 2016

Vinny McLaughlin

For stepping up at the eleventh-hour to organize and execute one of our newest, but most moving traditions of laying wreaths on the graves of all the Veterans and deceased Brother Knights in St. John's Cemetery.

November 2016

Bill Leake

For his leadership and nearly single-handed execution of our annual Keep Christ in Christmas card sales.

October 2016

Jerry Calhoun

Jerry's annual leadership and execution of the Coats for Kids collection and delivery to a needy community in Keyser, WV is an inspiration to all, and a personification of our first Principle of Charity!

September 2016

Ken Melchiorre

Ken's perennial leadership of the Oatland's Parking event always results in a successful fund-raiser for the Council. We recognize Ken for his commitment to make this event both enjoyable and fruitful!

August 2016

Don Phillips

As our Membership Director, PGK Don Phillips has been instrumental in moving our recruiting efforts forward, keeping our Council vital, and getting us on our way to achieving Star Council this year! A hearty "thank you", Brother Don, and congratulations!

July 2016

Frank Salvato

July was an unusually busy month with lots of calls for help relocating folks, rectory clean-up, etc. PGK Frank Salvato (and his shiny new pick-up truck!) stepped up and went above and beyond to help out! Many thanks, Brother Frank for exemplifying the Knights as the "strong right arm" of the Pastor!

FAMILIES OF THE MONTH

November 2016

The McLaughlins

Vinny and Angie's last-minute execution of our annual Joe Maloney Memorial Turkey Shoot saved one of our most cherished traditions in honoring a departed Brother. Angie is also leading the Ladies' Auxiliary and Vinny, of course, is active as our Worthy Trustee. Their daughters, Kalyn and Brook, when they are not away at school or tournaments, are fixtures at all of our Council family events.
