Council 13243 held “Family Week” from Friday, Aug. 10 thru Friday, Aug 17.
Aug. 10 the council invited families of Knights and parishioners to join in an evening at Andretti Thrill Park. We rode rides, raced go-carts and played putt-putt golf.
On Tuesday, July 17, council members and wives toured the Promise in Brevard facility. It was a mind blowing experience to see what type of facility Promise is and how it provides not only housing but jobs as well for peoples with intellectual disabilities. They are able to house 126 residents. Provide opportunities for these people to be as self-sustaining as possible. The Cafe and Bakery are weeks away from opening and will be a huge asset not only to Promise but our community as well.
I am proud to say Council 13243 has been able to support this facility thru monies raised from our Tootsie Roll drives.
