Thank you to all Knights who have worked on our various activites this past month!
Thank you, thank you, thank you: First, to all the brother Knights who worked the six lenten dinners - there are too many to list, but special thanks to brothers Damon Thayer and PGK Adin Selby for co-chairing, and to brother Kevin Cronan for his culinary contributions! Also, thanks to PGK Adin Selby for single-handedly mowing the back lot for additional Easter parking. This was a big job, which caused his own mower to break. Thanks to Adin's resourcefulness, he was able to repair it and the job was done before Easter Sunday. Thank you to Brothers Jude Salgado and JC Johnson for setting up the fencing for the Easter Egg Hunt, and to PGK Bob McCoy and his wife Mary for taking it down on Easter Sunday. Thank you to PGK Sal Lira and brother Juan Cuellar for setting up the crosses in front of the church along Bradshaw Road. Thank you to Brothers Damon Thayer and Bob Jett for getting the Stations of the Cross Tables in place and assisting with the Crucifix in the Vestibule for Good Friday. Please know brothers, that these efforts, while often unnoticed or unacknowledged, go a long way in helping to set a more positive tone at St. Maria Goretti, and helped to ring in the spirit of Easter. Thank you, thank you, thank you! (added 4/24/19)
March Crab Feed & Tri-tip Dinner was marvelous!
Our council again hosted a second crab feed this season on March 23rd. The menu included Tri-tip, crab, shrimp, pasta with white sauce, Manhattan clam chowder, salad and garlic bread. PGK Al Garcia chaired the event and Brothers Steve Ruch and Kevin Cronan ran the kitchen. Br. Scott McCabe led set-up, and PGK Adin Selby chaired the bar. Even though it was not a sellout (we had quite a few empty seats), all who attended had a great time. Paula Selby chaired our dessert auction and had so many desserts donated, we had trouble getting rid of them all! DGK Damon chaired the raffle and he scrambled up many donations. Special thanks to Andrea and the youth who served the dinner. And, thank you from GK Sam to ALL brother kjnights and their wives who served during the event, or attended and added to our profits. We can only do our charitable work with brothers and families like you! (updated 3/4/19)
