December 11th, 2019 at the Parish Center on Asbury Ave.
This year’s "Keep Christ in Christmas" poster Judging and KOC Christmas gathering was a success with a lot of fun and good food. Submitted entries marked a record number of participants from our children in the St. Damien CCD program. There were 3 age group categories and a 1st place and Runner up winner in each (pictured below). All entries will be on display inside St. Damien's three churches.
Congratulations to the winners and runners-up in all of the age groups (scroll to the bottom to see their posters).
Nathan Gabriel, 1st place
Diedy Marinez, Runner-Up
Kendall Barnes, 1st place
Earnest Carbone, Runner-Up
Ginger Mumman, 1st place
Catherine Brooks, Runner-Up
Congratulations also to all of the artists and judges as it was tough deciding between all of the outstanding entries. The winners will now compete in the New Jersey District challenge and if successful, continue moving up to the ultimate International Winners representing the Knights of Columbus World Wide.
Many Thanks to Barry Anes for his outstanding coordination of this event now in its fifth year.
