Knights of Columbus Family of the Month for August

The Geraerdts Family has been selected as the Knights of Columbus, Council 7566, Family of the Month. John and his wife, Jean, moved to Reston in 1996 and joined our parish shortly thereafter. John has been a faithful Knight since 1997. He has enjoyed the camaraderie of the Knights, particularly his work with the “Kitchen Crew,” throughout the years. Recently, he took the lead in all aspects of the Knights Appreciation Dinner that celebrated the Council’s achievements for the 2016-2017 Fraternal Year. He planned the event, purchased the food, organized and led the cooking, and ensured the event was a success. With more than 60 guests in attendance, including spouses and state and regional Knights officials, the Council enjoyed a relaxing and enjoyable evening that highlighted their support of many charitable activities throughout the year. Thanks for your leadership, John!
