Family of the Month -- August 2021
Council: 2219 - WESTBROOK
Our council’s Family of the Month for August is the Poitras family – Bob and Pat.
As has become custom, Bob and Pat hosted our council summer picnic at their home in Westbrook. Despite failing health concerns, they insisted that they were able and more than willing to let forty of us trample their lawn and park in their yard! Once again turnout was excellent. Steak and lobster were definite drawing cards, but it is the hospitality and camaraderie that brings us back year after year. Fr. Lou went out of his way to attend, even though his schedule was packed with the same-day celebration of his 40th anniversary of ordination.
Bob has been the caretaker of the vigil candles in the grotto he helped design and construct several years ago. Bob and Pat replenish the candles weekly. Bob sees that the proceeds are donated to various worthy causes.
Bob and Pat are also Eucharistic Ministers at St. Hyacinth and serve whenever scheduled.
