There is still much to be done and we need your council to lead the way. Keep the momentum going and start planning now for another successful fraternal year!

Knights Present Annual Awards Using Zoom

May 12th, 2020

While typically done amidst beer and pizza at Latuff’s Pizza, the KC Council presented this year’s annual awards using “Zoom”. With the live images of members filling the screen, glasses were raised (some figuratively; some not) in a congratulatory toast to this year’s award recipients:

The Knight of the Year was presented to Vic Tarnoski, aka Mr. Hospitality.  Vic practices hospitality in all he does – opening his home for the past twelve years hosting Council Christmas parties, his welcoming approach while ushering at Sunday Mass, his gentle presence felt while serving the funeral ministry and more.

The Family of the Year was presented to Paul and Jodie Keefe and daughter Erin.  Paul has been a 3rd Degree Knight since March 1, 1983 and a charter member (2002) of the Good Samaritan Council.  He has served as director of the Contemporary Choir, aka the “Folk Group” in the 1980’s, for over 35 years!  Jodie has served as the HNOJ school band director and music teacher for many years.  Daughter Erin often serves as cantor at Mass and is active in the Contemporary Choir and other HNOJ choirs. Paul, Jodie and Erin comprise a wonderful music group of their own providing great music for Mass and other HNOJ functions.

In the Foot Steps of St Joseph was presented to Jim Grube. This award recognizes the “worker bee” of the Council.  As Council Recorder, Jim definitely qualifies.   Council Recorder may not be the most exciting office but Jim has given it his all.  He listens well, is detail oriented, has excellent writing ability, and is patient and dedicated.  Over the years, Jim has been a great resource for organizational process and procedure.
