BLOOD DRIVE HUGE SUCCESS.




Steve Geiger, ‘Taz” Loendorf, Bob Holbrook,
Ken Kingman and Rob Anderson The crew of Knights

The goal United Blood Services set for this drive was 20 donors and 26 units.
We got 27 donors and 34 units !!!
The Knights took over the Blood Drive at St Pius last year on September 19th. This last drive was our 6th one.
The next Drive is Tuesday, September 18th. Ken Kingman and I are the two Knights in charge. Several Knights and some spouses donate. This time we had Ken Kingman and his son Shaun, Steve & Nicole Geiger, Art Loendorf and daughter Taz. Rob Anderson, Tom McIsaac, Kim Komar (Steve’s wife), and Roxanne Kuntz (Clayton’s wife). I think I remembered everyone. I didn’t donate this time (even though the photo makes it look like I did). I give what are called Double Reds so I can only donate every other Blood Drive. They’ll get me in September.
Grand Knight Bob Holbrook

FAMILY PROMISE THANKS COUNCIL

Dear Knights of Columbus,

Your help for set-up and take-down during a very busy couple of weekends for the Knights was amazing! Thank you for continuing to help with Family Promise despite other events and projects that coincided! Our next Family Promise Host Week is August 5th through 12th, 2018.

Special thanks to Steve & Kim Komar, Steve & Nicole Geiger, Lani & Keith Wallace, Justin Bough, Jon Bough, Ron & Lee Bough, Jon Swecker & family, Jerry and Rhyann (Bob Holbrook’s daughter and granddaughter), Chuck Legerski, Phil & Mary Zeeck, Deacon Tom Landry and any Knight or family member I may have missed.

Some exciting news: Family Promise just initiated a program called “Partners in Housing” which helps guests obtain home ownership! Two families have saved over $2,000 and with the help of Family Promise, they have purchased a used and refurbished manufactured home! Once the modest loan is paid, they will only have lot rent to consider which is far less money than rent in Billings. As a volunteer, please know that you are helping determined guests to have a permanent home! A home matters!

Shelly Greenfield

2017 STATE FAMILY OF THE YEAR

MONTANA STATE K. of C. - 2017 DIVISION I
FAMILY OF THE YEAR

.The 2017 Division I Montana State Family of the Year was awarded to the Phillip and Mary Zeeck Family of St. Pius X Council 9976, Saint Pius X Parish in Billings!

This Knight has been the Grand Knight and Chancellor of his Council. He is heavily involved with his work in the Knights. He is the manager of the Christmas Tree Program for his Council and the captain for the Tootsie Roll drive.

He and his wife work every fund raising dinner or breakfast the Council hosts. They are always helping with set up and tear down for Family Promise of Yellowstone County. They set up lots of beds and take them apart after a week-end getting them ready for the next Family Promise location. They personally delivered the coats from the Coats for Kids Program to four elementary schools in the area to make sure the kids have warm coats for the winter. Distributing the coats is rewarding and presenting a new coat that is the right size is rewarding!

This family helps with funeral dinners and works on children and youth activities at the parish. They are often helping with making sure the pews are in good working order and that the church is in good working condition. They bowl with the Special Bowlers and make sure that the bowlers are having a good time. They also provide entertainment through Bingo on Friday nights and were involved in the 40 Days for Life Program.

This family works hard in every activity that the Council does. They always have a smile on their faces and they work hard. They are selfless in making sure others are taken care of. They promote the Knights of Columbus through their words and works.
