On Jan. 19, the 5 councils of District 30 joined together in a fund raiser to support a local Pregnancy Resource Center and to also begin raising money to purchase an Ultrasound machine. We had 4 speakers: Paul Gloekler, the Florida State council Pro-Life Event Director; Linda Evans the director of the Pregnancy Resource Center in Melbourne; District Deputy Doug Blair, and District Warden Bob Burgess. The event was hosted by Fr. Martin Power Council at Ascension Catholic School Cafetorium. The food was great and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.
At our council business meeting Dec. 4, the Worthy District Deputy Doug Blair and his Worthy Warden Bob Burgess presented Past Grand Knight Mark Stephenson the Star Council Award for council year 2017-2018. Star Council is always a prestigious award and one the council should be proud of. This is our 2nd year in a row receiving such an honor.
Our 4th Annual Pumpkin Patch turned out to be our best ever. We received 2,657 pumpins. After two weeks of selling we sold a total of $15,057 dollars worth of pumpkins. The council realized @ $5,000 as a result. The Hayride was a huge attraction as well as the photo op we provided. Thanks to all the brother Knights who volunteered time and talent to make this event the success it was.
