Council: 114 - BANGOR

Project Description:

Commitment from Hartt Transportation Systems, Bangor, was obtained, to use a tractor-trailor for our float in the 2019 Greater Bangor Area Kiwanis Club 4th of July Parade. Our entry includes a float with Knights, family, and parish members singing patriotic songs. On July 3rd, 8 knights completed initial assembly of the float on the 48 foot flatbed trailer, with a centerpiece pedestal being an 8 X 16 foot, hand-painted mural depicting the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria sailing to the “New World.” Final assembly was completed by 6 knights and family members the morning of July 4th at the parade assembly yard in Brewer, including seating for 16 Knights and their families, along with 12 students from All Saints Catholic School, their Music instructor Doug Fogg, many flags, and a full sound system. Note that the float had a strong pole and rope barrier set all around, to ensure safety of all participants, including young children. A step ladder and close guarding ensured safe access up and down from the parade float deck. The Choral Group sang patriotic songs along the entire 3 kilometer parade route between Brewer and Bangor, engaging the parade goers to sing along. Our presentation was well-received by all, throughout the entire parade route. Like last year, we hiring Cyr Bus to transport participants back to the beginning of the parade. This project included Knights from our Council and Assembly, families and parish members. Float disassembly was completed on July 4th, and we all celebrated a great project!

Preparing and Submitting Surge and Faith in Action Reports.15791

02/25/2020


Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH

Project Description:

Forty Three council brothers, and helpers participated once again in Preparing and Submitting Surge and Faith in Action Reports within the Parish Worship sites and Private Homes, from July 2019 to February 2020. For our council it has been a very busy year with many, events, programs, workshops, and meetings which council brothers and sometime even family members participated in. During this time there was a big change in our reporting system, with the moving of two categories into other categories. Our Council Faith in Action Director has spent a number of hours working with council members in understanding the old as well as the new form, and teaching them how to use the forms. For this council it has been a challenge at times, but we worked our way through it, and the reporting goes on. We look forward in continuing to use and learn as we go forward during the balance of this Fraternal Year. We thank all those who have helped in teaching us the new Faith in Action Reporting system, from our District Deputy to the State Staff. In March our Council Faith in Action Director will be holding another workshop for those new members who we have brought in during 2019. With GODS blessings we will make it come together.
