Helping Hands, St. Anselm Walkers

09/13/2021


Council: 13861 - SANFORD

Project Description:

On August 18th 25 Brother Knights and 5 volunteers (our desert bakers) met at St. Ignatius Gym to prepare and served Spaghetti dinner to support the St. Anselm Hikers. We also provided breakfast for them the following morning. We fed 60 Hikers and support team members.
Every August, students walk from Lewiston, Maine to Saint Anselm College to raise funds for nine charities in Maine and New Hampshire. It is a modern-day pilgrimage that, in the words of the mission statement, “seeks to provide funds for the needy, strengthen the bonds in our communities, and rekindle the belief that every footstep makes a difference.”
As the walk is underway and throughout the year, check the Road For Hope blog to follow along!

Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH

Project Description:

Fifteen Brothers attended the September Business Meeting at Holy Martyr’s Church and Zoom on Tuesday 7 September 2021. As part of the Business Meeting on Tuesday, our Council Family and Knight Program Director made presentations to those council bothers and their Family members. With this meeting being so close to the Labor Day Holiday our attendance was down. Following the Business Meeting our Council Family and Knight Program Director scanned a copy of all the certificates to those chosen. Among the recipients selected were our Council Deputy Grand Knight, Financial Secretary, and one Trustee. The Family and Knight programs are very rewarding and presenting a certificate to the recipients is a very important way, to show the member and the Family that their time and talent is very much appreciated. God Bless all brothers and their Family members for their help and dedication.
