Faith In Action
A Message from Our Deputy Grand Knight
November 15th, our Grand Knight Dan Dooley presented warm winter coats to Melanie McLearon (left) and Catherine Morin (right) of Simcoe Muskoka Family Connexions. The Coats for Kids program provides the coats to those families in need. The funds for this donation were raised at this year’s Oktoberfest event.
On November 11th Remembrance Day Ceremony – The Council 1626 wreath was laid by Bro. Mel Fullerton, PGK at the Barrie Cenotaph. Bro. Andrew Sandilands (new member) of Council 1626 was the Chaplin for the parade and the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 147 (Barrie).
