Knights Korner ~ Council 5501 News   

We’re mired in the midst of another cold and dreary winter but there is no hibernating for the busy Knights. On January 23, our Council 5501 held their annual basketball free throw contest. The contest was open to all children ages 9 through 14. Awards were given to both the girls and boys with the best score in their age group. This year's winners were: GIRLS - Brooke Cacurak(9), Martina Saldamarco(10), Isabella Bolduc(11), Alyssa Weber(12); BOYS - Collin Rodgers(10), Morgan Adams(11), Zachery Kruse(12), and Kyle Penn(13). Knight Rich Paszek chaired the event. Congratulations to all and good luck as you move up to the next round in March!

Several Knights and their Fair Ladies gathered for a wonderful Valentine’s Day dinner and fellowship at the Carefree Inn in Indianola. Fr. Jim graciously agreed to chaperone to make sure things didn’t get too rowdy. It was a delightful, warm and cheerful occasion on a cold, gloomy and foggy winter evening.

Valentine favors were presented to our loyal, dedicated Monday evening Bingo players in celebration of the holiday and in appreciation for their support.

The Knights will again be holding their collection of used eyeglasses for the needy. Watch for the boxes for that purpose at both churches beginning in March.

New members always welcome. Come join us and experience that great rewarding feeling that comes from doing for our Church and others while hanging out with other Catholic men. Call Bob at 724-265-3274 or email: [email protected].
