Our Lady of Ransom Renovation
Council: 5515 - NORWAY
Our Lady of Ransom church members are involved in an ambitious project of creating a new hall and renovating the kitchen and worship space. Many brother Knights are involved, both on the committee and in the renovation process. Creation of a new hall, renovated kitchen, and new worship space will foster a stronger community and hopefully make the church more financially solvent. The project is slated to begin within the next few months.

The St. Thomas Council organizes a Haddock Supper every Friday (except Good Friday) during the season of Lent. Baked Haddock, mashed potatoes, peas, macaroni and cheese, bread, coffee, lemonade and assorted desserts are served. Various Knights will purchase and prepare the main course. Volunteers will prepare the desserts, set tables, bus tables, collect table cloths and vacuum the hall, once the dinner is over. Knights will work in the kitchen serving the food and washing dishes.
12 Knights, plus 15 volunteers worked that Friday’s supper. 161 patrons were served that evening at $10 per person. A profit of approximately $870.

Cony H.S. Football Off Season Conditioning Program 1st Half
Council: 334 - AUGUSTA
As a volunteer assistant coach for Cony H.S. Football I monitor the off season weight lifting program along with two or three other coaches. I break this program down into two sessions beginning at the close of the football season to March. The second half will begin in March and proceed up to the start of double sessions in August.
I watch and assist students lift weights basically three days a week after school. During any school vacations the sessions are held during the mornings three or four times during that vacation. The weight lifting is offered to any student, male or female, who wants to participate whether or not they play football.
The sessions must have a teacher or coach present.
Food Bank Volunteer
Council: 334 - AUGUSTA
I am a volunteer for the Augusta Food Bank. This is a year round activity therefore my Surge Reports go from March to March for reporting compliance. (The total persons participating is unknown to me. So I just put 30 in the space to satisfy that field. There are three paid staff members and many volunteers. I am not sure if any are Knights).
I perform many labor intensive chores. These include driving the Food Bank van to various stores to pick up hundreds or thousands of pounds of food donations which need to be loaded into the van then unloaded at the Food Bank. It also included a lot of warehouse work in order to restock the Food Bank.
My duties also include being the point person for the Community Cupboard located at Cony H.S. that distributes food to elementary and high school students. I fill the orders, load the van and deliver many pounds of food to the storeroom at Cony where I stock the shelves on a weekly basis.
The actual time that I put into this project was 293 1/2 hours.

Visiting our Home bound members
Council: 106 - LEWISTON
Seeing that we have many council members that area elderly we decided to get a group of us to go see the older members that are no longer able to come to our meetings for some reason. We decided to visit them in their homes to cheer them up. We take turns to go visit them one a month to different members. We sit and chat with them and see how they are doing by spending about an hour and then go another hour to visit another members. The joy they get of seeing us is very exciting and to see them with smiles and talk about the good of day of when things were different being a knight. They were a ones that were very involved and also always at the meeting until they got to old to be able to get out like they wanted to. Some of the were officers of the council some just members but were big volunteers and were there when we needed. This is the time to visit them and not wait until we have to go to one of there wakes and not have the presence of us being with them enjoying there brother knights.
