Loren Lacy

Loren should be recognized as Knight of the month. I see him everywhere...helping as an usher at church, during the Spanish mass at 2pm on Sundays he helps to ensure the Mariachis microphone needs are met. From setting up chairs for Mass in the Great Hall to managing our technology, Loren is a wonderful Brother and asset to our Council!

Michael was a Huge help on the Derby Knights marketing & branding team. It would have been impossible to have a successful charity fundraising event without him. He created the Derby Knights website, the custom shot glasses with the Derby Knights Logo. Michael also assisted with the fun horse racing videos and helped build the program. Much of the Derby Knights artwork and graphics were done by Michael.

Well done! Congratulations to our May Knight of the Month!

Greg Theisen

Greg has been super involved with recruiting new Knights for Council #12480 and his efforts are greatly appreciated.

Greg has done an excellent job with the membership Chair and is always available to assist with furniture moves - most recently to benefit moms from Project Gabriel & Mater de Filius. He is always there to assist our brothers as well when needed.

The Council has already exceeded its membership quota for the year at 107% for the Fraternal Year and we haven't processed in all the new candidates from recent Donut Sunday & Church Membership Drives.
We may just hit 200% - Double Star by the end of June!

Congratulations to Greg and his team for a job well done.

Vinny also received the 2023 Service Award from Bishop Burns recently at the Cathedral. Way to go Vinny!

Michael Brandone

Michael Brandone has been on fire leading a team of Knights to help in the kitchen with various meal events and to single one out the 4th degree exemplification meal was fantastic. Various attendees from Fr. Rudy to Ken Franch complimented the food and excellent service--the group fed 50 to 60 dignitaries and no one had a negative comment. Great Job Michael!

What can we say about Mark...The guy truly sets the example. He does Tuesday prayer meetings early in the morning...he leads the 1st Saturday Rosary prayer sessions. He was also the Spiritual Companion on the recent Men's ACTS Retreat. The guy is truly involved and should be honored. He truly Loves the Lord and you can feel that when he speaks. Congratulations Mark on being named Knight of the Month for September!

Ricardo Gonzalez

Ricardo organized the Silver Rose event that was held in July. The Knights of Columbus Council #12480 hosted the Silver Rose at St. Francis of Assisi at St. Francis on July 17th. The KofC Assembly #3004 4th Degree Color Corp., Council #12480, Squires and Squire Roses were all involved in the event and worked closely with St. Francis of Assisi to make this a success.
Ricardo coordinated with all those groups as well as the St. Francis Staff. He had 1 Knight read a script at each Mass and personally guarded the Silver Rose all day Sunday. Hats off to you Ricardo for a job well done!
