Weekly Announcements

02/27/2019


Council: 2219 - WESTBROOK

Project Description:

St. Anthony’s Parish has not had someone in the roll for making weekly announcements since Fr Reggie retired and there appeared to be a disconnect. The Knights set up a meeting with Fr Lou to discuss the roll of announcements, during that meeting we discussed the importance of weekly announcements and he agreed saying how he realized announcements were not being made and that was due to the fact that St. Anthony only has one lecture, Our Lady and St Ann’s have the luxury of having two lectures making it possible for them to have announcements read. The Knights approached the Daughters Of Isabella asking if they would like to take the Saturday mass and then the Knights would cover the Sunday 9;30 Mass. The Knights presented this agreement with Fr Lou and he was in full agreement so announcements are back at St. Anthony and well received by the parishioners.




Youth Sports Coaching and Volunteering

02/27/2019


Council: 13181 - SABATTUS

Project Description:

The Brother Knights of Council #13181 in Sabattus have been very active in the coaching of youth sports in our communities.
I, Robert Michaud, am the head hockey coach for the Maranacook Area Youth Hockey Bantam team. At Maranacook Area Youth Hockey, we stress player development, team work, and sportsmanship as much as or more that the fundamentals of the game of hockey. We hold practices twice each week and each team usually has 1 to 2 games each weekend. The work that the players do helps them to develop, not just as hockey players, but character as well. We recognize and reward their hard work and correct them when they fall short. Our teams have been very successful over the years and the success is due in large part to the overall individual development that we stress.

Hockey, like all team sports, offers an opportunity for young players to learn key values and then put them to the test in competition. I am proud to see the development and growth of these young men and women and know that they will carry what they have learned on the ice with them through life.

I, Robert Michaud, am a lacrosse coach for the Sabattus Rec. Club 7th & 8th team. Together with 3 other coaches we led our team of young lacrosse players through their lacrosse season. This typically included 2 practices per week and 1 to 2 games our tournaments each weekend. We focused on the development of lacrosse skills, but more importantly, the importance of sportsmanship, teamwork and hard work to accomplish a goal. We were were privileged to observe very positive growth throughout the season of all of our players.

Brother Knight Robert Gladu is an assistant coach for the Maine Gladiators hockey club and the Poland / Gray / New Gloucester / Leavitt combined High School Hockey team. He coaches both younger and older players in a positive developmental appropriate way to help them become successful in their chosen sport.

Brother Knight Justin Castonguay has become the scheduler for the Maranacook Youth Hockey Association. This position requires a significant time commitment, especially at the beginning of the hockey season to make sure a fun and effective program is delivered.

American Red Cross Blood Drive

02/26/2019


Council: 10020 - No. WINDHAM

Project Description:

We conducted our annual blood drive in November with the American Red Cross. We normally host this event around Thanksgiving knowing that donations tend to be down around the holiday season and it also allows church members and area residents to express their thanks by giving of themselves. We held the drive from 2:00pm-7:00 and were able to collect 31 units of blood which met our goal. We had a donation of a sandwich platter from Subway to thank the Red Cross Staff and donors. The attitude of people who donate at our drive lightens everyone’s spirits and makes it a very enjoyable event.
