Theo Gerlich is the Council's current Treasurer and has held numerous other positions within the Council. As the Treasurer, he is called on to handle the Council's financial activities, which is a greater demand on his time than most of the other officer positions. His support as a volunteer at many of Council's activities is an important part of the success of those events, and sets a good example for the rest of the Council. Theo is an outstanding example of what it means to be a Knight of Columbus.

Lowell has managed the Council's quarterly blood drive for the last three years. He has done so with little outside help or Council oversight.

Patrick, Audra, and Emily Traugott
Patrick and Audra Traugott, and their daughter Emily, as the Family of the month. My reason for this is their dedication to the church, serving in many capacities, but mostly with being involved in the Music Ministry. This is something that the whole family participates in. They are also involved in ACTS, the Adopt a Stations of the Cross, and the Parish Festival. Their work in spreading the Gospel is not just by leading others in song and being involved, it is also through their action and what they display to others on how they serve and live their lives.
