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.
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.

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.
Ed and Kathy Schulze
Ed and Kathy have been very involved in the 4th degree since Ed’s Knighthood. Kathy is also on the Ladies Council of the 4th Degree. They both were a great help, and stayed late into the night working at the People’s Banquet in Woodbridge. Sarah and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their help with the dinner. We served 150 meals!
