First, I must say THANK YOU to
all who helped with the Giant Yard Sale! Over fifty Brother Knights participated in some way! Some brought
family or friends to help with the set-up. A special THANK YOU goes out to Alex Keller for coordinating
this mammoth endeavor! We gave about $5000 to the church from the proceeds!
Jim Barthelmes ran the fishing trip again. Not too many big fish were caught, but it was still a great
time. We also went to see the Long Island Ducks play, with members of the OLPH Church Choir leading the “National
Anthem”, and the 4th Degree Color Corps presenting the flag.
We said farewell to PGK Ed Cirella, as he and Renee move to Texas. Best wishes from all of us,
Check out our new FACEBOOK page, ‘Knights of Columbus Council
794, Lindenhurst’. Gerald Pointing, JR set it up for us. Our start-up committee included Matthew
Ninomiya, Michael Duffy, and myself. This is an exciting endeavor for us. There are already pictures
of things we have done. Anything you might want to post should go through Gerald or me.
September will be busy. Our installation of Officers is scheduled for the 16th…. Mass at noon; followed by the ceremony, in the church; with our reception at the American Legion Hall.
I hope many of you attend, in support of the men who work hard to make our Council great. The next day is our Golf
Outing, a fundraiser for both the church and our council. Don’t forget to purchase “Go for the Green”
raffle tickets. Contact Mike Hearney or Bob Dobres for information. September 30th
is our 5th Sunday Mass at 8am. Please attend Mass with your Brother Knights.
Thank you all for your amazing efforts, in support of OLPH Knights of Columbus and OLPH Church.
Stephen M. Strigaro, Grand Knight
