Thank you for all your help and support for the Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser – according to the final count, this event netted $1848.65. We had a lot of fun in the effort.
The move of this event to Saturday night was a key in the success for this year. It is estimated that we spent about 160 man-hours of efforts. In addition to the income, we provided a large amount of food to three different organizations and a significant amount of bread to the religious education students who were studying the Eucharist. We were fortunate enough to share our table with St Edward’s Spanish community after the 6:30 Mass let out. We had a great time as they brought in some enchiladas and a birthday cake for a youngster.
A special thanks, goes out to Debby Galluppi who was very instrumental in getting a large amount of donations from local businesses – that effort directly increased the profit for this event. Another special thanks goes to the Youth ministry support lead by John Leirey. There efforts were extremely beneficial.
The Saint Edwards and Corpus Christi Councils of the Knights of Columbus, would like to thank the Town of Clifton Park and the Clifton Park Soccer Club for their support of our annual Soccer Challenge. On Saturday, September 23, and Sunday, September 24, the Knights held a penalty kick competition to determine our region’s representatives to the regional competition.
Forty-seven boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 14 kicked over 1300 penalty kicks over the two days. In the end, we were able to select 5 boys and 5 girls to represent us at the conference and state levels at West Point on November 5. Here’s a hearty shout out to all the participants an congratulations to those who will be advancing. See you at West Point!

Recently five knights from our council went to Ronald McDonald house (RMDH) in Albany under the leadership of Ken Speanburg. They were warmly greeted and then set to work on their mission to cook dinner for approximately 40 to 45 guests. Dinner included baked ziti, salad, garlic bread, and dessert, all prepared by the brothers. This has been a yearly activity for the Knights.
Running test #2 to post to our new facebook page.
