Knights in shining armor – KCs aide needy on Thanksgiving
The St. Clement Knights of Columbus have made a name for themselves as some of the most generous men in Pike County. Whether they’re taking donations at the four-way or delivering a delicious Thanksgiving dinner, these Knights prove over and over that they’re one-of-a-kind.
Second-year Knight Ryan Schuckenbrock said the motion to spread joy this Thanksgiving met little opposition at a recent KC meeting.
“This is the first year we have done the turkey dinners. It was new to us,” he explained. “When we talked about it at our meeting, we took a vote on it and decided it would be a good thing to give a try. We have a good group of guys that all voted for it. There wasn’t anyone against the idea.”
This year the KCs, with help from the Division of Family Services (DFS) and the Hope Center, began a new tradition, collecting and delivering Thanksgiving dinners, complete with a turkey, to needy families in the Bowling Green area.
Schuckenbrock explained that although the project started out small this year, with a goal of just 20 to 25 meals, he thinks the dinners will be an ongoing tradition which grows in support and size.
