After the presentations, both Bryan and Christian gave very well thought out thank you’s to the Knights of Columbus, explaining how much the scholarships meant to them and their families, and a promise to do their very best to make one and all proud for them.
Barbara Cotton took the time of the event to say a “Thank You” to the Knights of Columbus for their Donation of $300.00 to The Cape Cod Children’s Museum in Mashpee where she is the Director. The money was, in turn, given by the Museum to three families to cover their one year memberships. She went on to say how grateful these families were to the K of C for the opportunities allowed because of these gifts.
Closing out the guest list, was, Seminarian Matthew Gill, who is attending St. John’s Seminary in Boston, MA. He is one of the 4 seminarians that the Council gives support to over the year. He came to the meeting to thank all the Knights for their continued support, both spiritual and monetary. The Council gives each seminarian a $500.00 yearly stipend.
