Thank you to all who helped with this wonderful event last week end – [French Food Festival].
Whether you were working at Mike McClure’s tent or somewhere else volunteering, the Knights from St Bridget (and wives) were well represented. There was a lot of prep work and cooking done by many on five nights prior to the event….thanks to you folks.
A couple of special thanks go to Ron Campbell and Ann/Randy Boyd who were there for countless hours assisting me keeping the food moving!
I am proud to be associated with such a giving group.
On Saturday August 26, 2017, Bob Redmond and Barry O’Brien advanced to Full Knighthood in the Third Degree of the Knights of Columbus. The ceremony took place at St Michael’s Church. There were 25 other Knights from the central Virginia area who received this honor. Please congratulate Bob and Barry on receiving advanced degrees for their service in St Bridget Knights of Columbus Council 5476.

We will have our May Business meeting tomorrow night at 6:30. We have some important items to discuss, and let me know of anything that you would like to discuss. We plan to adjourn by 7:30PM.
On another note, many thanks to all of our Knights who worked at the French Food Festival! I believe that we “answered the bell” quite well helping to make Chef Mike McClure’s tent a great success.
I would like to mention individuals who participated, but I am afraid that I would miss someone as we had a great number of you helping either at our booth or somewhere else. This was our first time doing this, and there are lessons to learn to make it better next year. It was a delight working with Chef Mike…I hope all of you got a chance to meet him. I, for one, will try his restaurant in the Bottom, LuLu’s.
It was also gratifying to see the number of spouses and older children that we had helping us….team work brought us through!….Thanks to all!
Attached are pictures from the crew working last night for French Food Festival….Many thanks to Ron, Sandra, Ann and Randy who joined Madeline and I to cut onions and squash….still to come are mushrooms, more squash, eggplant, peppers, and carrots….need more help if you can find time….slots still open for tonight. 5:30-8:30.
