Family of Man Council #7566 held their monthly social on September 18th in the SJN Auditorium. More than 30 Brothers attended this dinner and enjoyed a special dinner of baked pork loin (which didn't last long), red cabbage, sausage stuffing, mango applesauce, salad, garlic bread and ice cream with strawberries for dessert. Many thanks to Brother/Chef John Geraerdts for leading fellow brother in the kitchen for the evening and to all the Knights who helped with the cooking and clean up! We sincerely appreciate them taking time out of their day to join us for the evening
It is with great pleasure the Family of Man Council announces the Wayne Weeks family as Family of the Month for August 2018.
Wayne and his family have a long history with the Knights of Columbus. Wayne’s father and uncle were both Knights and his wife's godfather is a Past Grand Knight. Wayne joined the Order in 1996.
To Bury the Dead is a Work of Mercy and Patriotism is a Principle of our Order. On September 6th, Brother Tom Carter and Bob Balog, both Vietnam War Veterans, attended the re-interment of two Union soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. These two soldiers were killed in August 1862 during the Second Battle of Manassas and buried in a shallow grave that was discovered in 2014. Their remains are the first to be buried in the new section of the Cemetery near where interment of Union dead began in 1864.
