Isidor Padilla

He cooks, he cleans up, he shows up – since joining Council 8482 in June of 2020 at the height of the Covid pandemic, Isidor rapidly become a mainstay for our events, particularly when the events involved cooking. Isidor is a great team player and is willing to fill a hole where needed. Like providing dinner for
the Officers Installation on very short notice. Thanks Isidor.
Isidor is full of ideas on how we can make the best use of the new food
trailer. Oh, Isidor also smokes a mean chicken, as we discovered at the
Ordination reception last month.
Isidor is also an invaluable member of the Home association and currently serves on their board.
Congratulations Isidor on being the Knight of the Month for June.

Steve helped with fish fry's, installing the outdoor Stations of the Cross, Bingo night, First Friday Meals. The list of events Steve has volunteered to help go on and on.

done for our Council we have chosen to honor him as Knight of the Month for May.

Mike Velez

Mike is one of those guys that continually “flies under the radar” so to speak. He never asks for recognition for the things he does, but he always seems to be around when something needs to be done.
Anytime we have an event he is there working, whether it be preparing food or helping to clean up. For all that he does for our Council and our members, Mike was chosen to be honored as Knight of the Month for March.

Henry (Hank) Walker

Hank Walker only joined our Council and the Knights of Columbus in August 2018 but immediately participated in meetings and helped at our functions. Hank attended the first available major degree after his initiation to become a 3rd degree Knight. When Jim McBane asked him to help with the Christmas Advent Fellowship Sunday for vocations, he agreed. This is a major event that our Council would be doing for the first time. Little did Hank know that Jim would be away during part of this event and would need Hank to manage the Advent Fellowship Sonday for both Saturday evening Masses and the Masses Sunday morning. Hank accepted the challenge, worked with the team he and Jim developed, and made sure these Masses were covered. He worked all the Masses, except for a short trip home, to take care of the pets (his goats). Even after Jim McBane arrived, Hank continued to work through the last Mass. Thank you Hank for all your hard work and everything else you have done for the Council since you joined. Congratulations Hank.

SK D. Dennis Majeski

Brother Dennis transferred to our Council in June of this year and immediately began working to help us become a better council. He took on the difficult, demanding, often thankless, and extremely important job of Membership Director. He quickly reviewed the membership status with Supreme and initiated the process to get everything current. He then took on the task of arranging the August 1st degree for candidates already approved, contacted candidates recruited, and recruited candidates. He marshalled through the approval process transfers and new brothers. He went 100 miles an hour at the August 1st Degree getting candidates checked in, payments received, and moving the process forward. He is in constant communication with the Worthy FS Larry, DGK Merv and your GK on issues of membership. Yet he does not consider himself finished as he presents new ideas and keeps your GK honest on the membership process. He has not focused only on membership but encouraged the council to sell Advent and Easter magnets to help raise funds. He encouraged us to step up or honoring of Brother Knights who passed away. Thank you Dennis for your commitment to the Knights of Columbus and your hard work for our council.

Bill Vacek

September 2018 Knight of the Month
Brother Bill is one of the first brother Knights to step forward when help is needed. On most hall work weekend you can find him out edging along the fence line and around the hall building. Then he cleans up all the areas he works. He has worked on our gutters so that they will no longer cause water to leak into the building. Bill is a member of the Home Association and actively participates there. Bill is an Usher at the 7:30 am Sunday mass and when he is scheduled he is there to serve. When someone is needed to help on Sunday all one needs to do is ask. Thank you Bill for your service.
