The Knights furnished all the food which included: Corn Beef, cabbage, onions, carrots, boiled potatoes, homemade rye, Russian rye and white breads and some of the desserts.

The entertainment was furnished by the Franklin County Fiddlers, a fiddlers group from Mount Blue High School, Farmington Maine. This is a musical group that does presentations around the state in concert with their regular music class during school. Not only did the Fiddlers play the traditional St. Patrick songs, they also held a sing along to the tunes of: Take Me out to the Ballpark and Sweet Caroline (Neil Diamond). The Fiddlers also played at the inauguration of Governor Janet Mills earlier this year. This is at least the 10th year this merriment has been presented by the Knights of Columbus. The donations received covered all our expenses along with presenting the Franklin County Fiddlers a contribution of $500.00 for their continued musical service for Franklin County. No one was green with envy because all enjoyed the good food, good friends and great music.

Sixty three council brothers, along with their wives and parishioners participated in this years Parish Lenten Mission Talk at Holy Martyr’s Church, and Sacred Heart Church within our Parish, and from their homes from March 11-13, 2019. We also had two council brothers help as greeters and also with the serving of the breakfast and supper meals. There were two sessions offered each day. One in the morning at Sacred Heart, and one in the evening at Holy Martyr’s. The theme for these mission talks was “KNOWING, LOVING AND SERVING GOD” Fr. Steven Bell, Paulist Missionary Priest, was an exciting speaker and all the parishioners of the Parish of the Holy Eucharist including the Knights of Columbus from our council, enjoyed each session very much. During these sessions we gain insight and information which deepened our relationship with God through faith formation, worship & prayer, and learning how to share your faith walk with others. The evening session which my wife and I went to started at 5:30 PM with Mass, then followed with a Light Supper. At 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM Fr. Steven Bell conducted his Mission Talk. In the morning session, the Mass started at 8:15 AM followed by a light breakfast at 8:45 AM. At 9:15 AM to 10:15 AM Fr. Steven Bell conducted his Mission Talk. All present went away from this three day retreat very enriched, with our hearts and minds refreshed with the Good News which Fr. Steven Bell blessed us with. Thanks be to GOD and Fr. Bell.

Assiting neighbors

03/12/2019


Council: 2465 - FARMINGTON

Project Description:

After the snowstorm, two of our neighbors needed assistance. Both live on our road, which is rural, non-paved and not easily accessible. One neighbor, Jack, has his arm in a sling and was unable to remove snow from around his mailbox and walkway. He had already made a path from his house, after the last storm I told him to call. My wife and I assisted him in blowing snow from the end of the path to the mailbox, removed snow from around the mailbox.

The other neighbor, Robin and Will, live down the road from our house. Will was out of town and had wood delivered on the day he left. Robin and Will heat their house totally with wood. The wood was delivered and dumped 20 feet from where they store their wood on the porch. Karen and I knew of the delivery and went to assist her with taking wood from the pile to the house. We assisted her to move about 3/4 of the cord of wood delivered.
