The Regional Soccer Shootout was another great success with the Leadership of Mike Schwartz. Supporting Knights included Brothers Dave DeFour, Dave Kern, Jim Markley, Adam Fabbri, Joe Kahloff, Mike Schwartz, and Matt Bauer. There were about 50 Children participating and the other Knights that brought children from various councils totalled about 30. States will be this Sunday.
Yesterday between 11:30 and 1:30 Brother Chip Steinburger organized our successful Coats for Kids event. Knights included: Chip Steinberger, Jim Markley, Tim Andrel, Dave DeFour, David O’Donnell, Tony DeSorbo, Jake Morano, Jack Connolly, and me. We met at the Pole barn Marsh Drive and organized the lots. We made successful and needed distributions at Hamilton, LeTort, and Lamberton Elementary schools. Less than 2 hours of our charitable time brought much needed coats and they were so very appreciative and thankful for our efforts. Hamilton Elementary for example is one of the most diverse schools in cumberland county. 75% of the children who attend are on free lunch. There is only one bus and those that are within a mile walking distance must walk and makes up most of the school population. Those that need a coat and make that walk on cold or rainy mornings will be thankful.
Special thanks to our photographer and participant Jack Connolly. Jack kept us on point and took some amazing photos that we will work up for press release to local newspapers and the Columbia Magazine.

SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.
