I have written in the Neighbor Fencepost multiple times, to share what organizations are doing to help our injured and affected military service-members, veterans, and their families here in Illinois and elsewhere.
On Oct. 27, the Knights of Columbus, Fourth Degree (Seton Assembly #2410) held the Knight of Patriotism, and many of its members, their wives, and other family members and friends stepped up to raise funds and awareness for Salute, Inc.
It was simply amazing to see the time, energy, dedication and commitment that was given to making the Knight of Patriotism a great success. The collection of gifts for the auction, the arrangements, the setup, decorations, literally every aspect of what these individuals did was remarkable.
It renewed our spirit to see what people will do to say thank you and support the injured and affected service members and their families. Salute, Inc. is approaching its 10th year anniversary and the Knights of Columbus have been with us since day one, supporting our efforts to help and assist our injured service members and their families. The continued efforts and support from the Knights of Columbus and its members is a testament to why these men and their families deserve our thanks and appreciation.
As Salute, Inc. is just one of many organizations they support, I would ask that at the next parade, mass, or other public or religious event that you see the Knights of Columbus, that you offer up a thank you and a salute to these unsung heroes.
These men and their families are truly making a difference in a significant way and the Salute, Inc. family appreciates all they do. The Salute, Inc. motto of honoring the service and remembering the sacrifice is truly exemplified by the actions and support of the K of C.
