Scholarship Winner Declared!

Our council once again held a scholarship contest for graduating high school seniors from our parish who plan to continue their learning. The Knights offered one $500 scholarship. The cash scholarship may be used to offset the costs of either a private or public 2-year or 4-year academic institution, or a certified vocational or trade school. The entries were scored by a panel of judges on various aspects, which included their application, their essays and the letters of recommendation. Although it was close, this year's winning senior is Dominic Hoang, Jr. From Jesuit High School. If you see young Dominic, be sure to offer your congratulations. Special thanks goes to Br. Scott McCabe for chairing this worthy event. (updated 5/19/21)

Crab Feed Fundraiser Dinner a Snapping Success!

Despite the pandemic, our council hosted a sell-out drive-though crab feed fundraising dinner on Friday, March 12th. Dinner consisted of crab, shrimp, clam chowder, pasta, salad, and garlic bread -- all for the reduced price of $45 per meal. And, all tickets were entered into a cash drawing! We sold all 150 tickets and all leftovers. Many hands were needed and the co-chairmen (GK Damon Thayer and Br. Bob Jett) would like to thank brothers Steve Ruch, PGK Adin Selby, Kevin Cronan, Scott McCabe, PGK Sal Lira, Dave Haehn, Ted Mandalla, Deacon Gary Brys and Fr. Sylvester, as well as Paula Bonifacio and Josie Ryder for all of their hard work putting this togther and cleaning up. Our council was able to donate over $1300 to the parish! Thanks to all the brothers and parishioners who bought tickets and enjoyed the dinner. (updated 3/20/21)
