Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser for Seminarians

The Knights of Columbus pancake breakfast fundraiser on Sept. 30 was delicious success to raise funds for our Sacred Hearts seminarians. Our knights swarmed the social in their very keen KofC aprons. The funds received from the event totaled $1400 with $500 going to the seminarians.

We are blessed to be able to help our brothers in Christ on their journey to priesthood. Our Lady of Refuge’s transitional deacon, John Mckenzie, was one of the beneficiaries of the collected funds.

New Deck for the Brenner Family

New Deck for the Brenner Family

The Brenner family needed steps replaced off their door wall and Knights of Columbus Council 600 embraced the opportunity. We decided to build a deck rather than just steps to improve living conditions.

Tom Durkee got busy and put together a modest 6 X 5 ft plan with steps off the deck. Also, Kenny Ibrahim signed up to help and to bring in a friend, Peter, who needed community service hours. A win-win situation. Peter helped build the deck and even contributed some of his own money in addition to the labor required to build the deck. Kenny, a very adept handyman, wanted to add some steroids to the deck plan and it became a 12 X 12 ft. deck! That is one BIG thinking man! The Brenner kids got involved with Peter, Kenny, and the boss man, Tommy.

Knights from 600 Represent and Serve at Our Lady of Refuge Picnic

Knights of Columbus council #600 had a booth at the September 16th Our Lady of Refuge picnic serving wine and beer. The Greiwe’s provided the awesome wines and display while the dad’s club provided the beer. Displayed prominently in front of the tent was our newly designed retractable banner.

It was a beautiful day for a picnic and we enjoyed the company of all who visited us.
