The Knights of Columbus John Clare Council challenges all Catholics in the West Hills/Multnomah Village area to give food to St. John Fisher chapter of St. Vincent De Paul- one can, per family, per day during Lent. Help our council out, e-mail Grand Knight Ted Seeber when you do it! For every 500 pounds of food we collect, for every $500 donated, or every 500 volunteer hours spent, our council gets money back from Supreme through the Food For Families program that we can spend on our charities. You do not have to be a Knight to help with this program- include the whole family! Other opportunities: St. Clare's St. Vincent De Paul would like drivers to help deliver food boxes. Contact Tim Crimmins for more info. Also, a group has formed to do dinners at St. Andre Bessette, the Downtown Chapel. Contact Cindy Hessler for that. Remember- report your hours, report your giving this Lent, and help our council out!
Thank you to all who volunteered to help set up and tear down for the Gumbo Dinner. FS Phil Jarvis, GK Ted Seeber, Lecturer Mike O'Phelan, and Chancellor Marc Gregoire helped with the setup, and GK Ted Seeber, Chancellor Marc Gregoire, John Creegan, and Trustee Ken Paulsen helped with teardown. The families of the GK and Chancellor also helped.
