Annual Coat Drive

The High Lite of our year was finally after two years of postponements, having our 100th Anniversary Celebration at Leonard’s Palazzo in Great Neck on Sunday April 24th. It was certainly a great turnout with nearly 150 in attendance. Music by the Cold Spring Harbor Band provided the guest the opportunity to dance and all the guest were provided with the 100th Anniversary
Souvenir Journal.

 

We had a very good year selling the NYS Council C&B Chance books. We were able to sell the chances after mass again but the membership really stepped up and purchased more chance books than usual. Once again we sent a team to the C&B Bowling Tournament.

 

For the second year in a row, our “Keep Christ in Christmas” car magnets sold out our inventory this year. We sold out our full box shipments to bulk purchasers (other councils) by November 1 st and individual sales (eBay) were sold out by Christmas. We sold 15,000 magnets. In 2023 we are looking to sell 20,000 magnets through our new website, www.kofc2122.org and we are now able to accept credit card payments.

 

We sent a Foursome to the Fordham University Alumni Golf Tournament where they honored our Brother Knight John Cifichiello Posthumously.

 

The council supported the Parish Blood Drives. We marched in the Memorial Day Parade.

 

Our new program from Supreme was a resounding success, called ASAP (Aid & Support After Pregnancy) where in the month of of October we collected Diapers and Baby supplies. Our Annual Coat Drive happened in November and generated nearly 600 coats! The Annual Christmas Party was a huge success and honored our immediate PGK Bruce Marsanico.

 

We presented the Knight of the Year Awards to Tom Buzzitta & PGK Tom Mayerhauser for all their efforts and work for the Council. We also presented additional awards this year.

 

Recognition Awards: - Frank Delucia for his years as Chief Counselor of the Squires;

                                         - Jay Durkin for 20 years as our Treasurer.


Acknowledgment Awards: - JoAnne & Marty Maglione for their hospitality and dedication.

                                                    - Catherine & Lionel Mailloux for their involvement and support.

 

The council also conducted the Annual Memorial Mass this past November and we donated a wheelchair to St. Mary’s Parish. We were joined this year by the Columbiettes and the Rosary Society. At this mass, con-celebrated by our Pastor Fr. Bob, Chaplain Fr. Dominik, and we remembered the following who passed in 2022 and all our members who have gone before us.
