The Knights of Columbus

The Kids Thank You!                     

 by Robert J. Sivori, Grand Knight

On Friday, August 28th, 80 golfers participated in this year’s Bill Lord Memorial Golf Tournament to benefit L.A.M.B.  The L.A.M.B. Foundation funds Special Olympics and educational programs for Special Education Students across the State and across the Country.  Our Council 12921 concentrates on the Duplin County School System.

Each school’s Special Education Program is eligible to receive grants from the funds raised through this event.  Exceptional Student Teachers apply formally through their Headquarters’ Staff which forwards each request to our Council for consideration.

We prefer that the grant requests cover the cost of a developmental program for the children which the school budget does not cover.  The amount of each grant depends upon the total funding acquired through the golfing event. There will be a formal presentation to each teacher within the next 3 months.  Last year the teachers received $7,000 in grants.

    

 

     

 

Who are the Knights of Columbus?  What do they do?

The Knights of Columbus follow the Bible:  Matthew 25:40 “I tell you, in so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me.”

We are a group of practicing Catholic Men who have stepped up to help the Parish, the Community, and those people who need our assistance.  The Knights are Church Council Members, Church Maintenance Managers, Bishop’s Annual Appeal solicitors, Lenten Supper Organizers, Food Bank Helpers, Prisoner and Hospital Chaplains, Eucharistic Ministers and Sunday Readers.   

Being a Knight of Columbus is all about giving back to your community and building bonds of brotherhood.  Come join us!  If you would like to be a part of our efforts to support our parish and our local community contact Bob Sivori at 910-226-8070 or at robertjsivori@gmail.com.
