HAPPY, AND PROSPEROUS, NEW YEAR
2006 got off with a spiritual bang! After too many years without, the rosary has returned to radio in this area.
Every Sunday morning, (it commenced on New Year’s Day) the rosary is being prayed at 9:00 a.m. on YOUR
FM, 98.5 on your dial.
One of the major sponsors of this half hour of prayer is District 35 of the Knights of Columbus, of which
Council 1504 is the major participant. I am sure that Our Blessed Mother will pour forth many graces upon
our council, and the District, for supporting those who have spearheaded this endeavour.
In some ways, 2005 was a difficult year. Some of our fund raising efforts did not achieve their prior
performance. A notable exception to this general rule was our annual craft sale. I personally want to thank
Fernando Melo and Gerry Kelly for their significant efforts in making this a wonderful success.
The annual feather party under the very capable leadership of Whit Husk involved a large number of Brother
Knights who worked very hard. However, the crowd was much smaller. Despite this major difficulty, the
event made a decent buck. Thank you, Whit! I’m sure Whit agrees with me that we need YOUR input to put
more “sizzle” into this event. This is also true of our auction.
Thanks also to Joe Lembo and Ennio for a great spaghetti dinner, Reinhart Schreiter for the well-attended
Memorial Mass, the First Degree Team for leading 7 of our own through their first step to Knighthood, and to
Don Leyes for a wonderful Children’s Christmas Party.
The bottom line is our income is falling, and the demand for charity increasing. We have to turn this around in
2006 and, with God’s help based on our prayers, we will.

CHRISTMAS SEASON practical and it’s sustainable. Most of all, it’s a “win-win-win”
By Reverend W.L. Lobsinger, P.P.
Dear Brother Knights, Win: the resolution affords an opportunity to assist the clergy
and support their efforts to unite the parish in the spirit.
As Christmas fast approaches, it is important that we reflect on what this holy season is Win: the dedication provides an opportunity to assist the less

Christmas, for many Canadians has become simply a winter holiday. We say; season’s Win: the activity provides instant and sustained personal
greetings and happy holidays to those we meet. Finding religious ornaments and gratification in taking an active role by “making a difference”

not what Christmas is all about. If it weren’t for Christ, there would be no Christmas.

the obvious, however, most of our listed items quickly fall by the way-side as
“more” pressing matters take hold. Essentially, it’s our lack of true
commitment and dedication to the cause that drags us down the slippery
slope to a pool of guilt. Maybe, just maybe, selecting one cause only, that we
can really commit to, would be an instrumental way to sustainable success.

2005 “Feather Party” a Success
On Tuesday evening Dec 6, 2005, we held our annual feather party. Again this year it was a great success. A net profit of $2804.00 was raised for our Knights of
Columbus charity fund. Many who attended went home with their Christmas turkey, ham, hamper, wine basket, summer sausage, gift certificates or many other great
prizes. For those who didn’t, it’s your turn next year. Thanks to all for coming out to our Columbus Center and supporting one of our main charity fund-raisers.
On our prize table this year were much appreciated gifts donated by Lorne Kuntz, Bill Jackson, Schreider Sandrock, Sobey’s, Playcon Recreation, Finest Meats, The
Wine Rack and Conestoga Catering.
A special thank you to our brother knights and members (there were many of them) who volunteered their time in any way at our “Feather
Party” to make this again a successful event.
Let me please introduce our team:
Mike Ryan for organizing the sellers, handing out the tickets and collecting returns along with PGK Reinhart Schreiter. The ticket sellers who raced around the
floor…. PGK Gerry Kelly, Jeff Thompson, Brian Garnier, PGK Mario Peretti, Bernie Logel, John LeBlanc, DD and PGK Dale Stuebing, Stephen Menard and
Fernando Melo. Looking after the prize table and Christmas Dinner table were GK Roger Cann, Patrick Cann and Robert Trembley. On stage, spinning the wheel was
PGK Tom Angel our MC for the night and insuring all received their winnings were PGK Tom Brooks and Jim Hause. Converting your cash to casino chips were Jim
Hibbs, Norm Brown and PGK Joe Sutherland. Finally, Ron Solomon for serving the late night sandwich; and George Burchatzki for looking after our Sobey’s order.
During intermission that night we were privileged to watch our charity funds in action. Our Grand Knight Roger Cann presented Charlie
Sellers of St Vincent De Paul with a cheque of $20,000 and PGK Gerry Kelly presented St Mary’s Hospital with a cheque of $16,000. (This
completes our charity pledge of $75,000 to St Mary’s)
This my brother knight, members and friends is what fundraising is all about. You made it happen………Thank You.
Whit Husk, PGK
Feather Party Chairman
Alarm for Life
As a follow up to the last Echo, I would like to thank the following member who volunteered time to inspect, and install smoke detectors, replace butteries in
smoke detectors, also confirm if a detector was operating properly. Whit Husk, Ted Jasica, Michael Delenardo, Len Solomon, David Grzesiak and Ed Schmitt.
The final number is over 320 units, every one should be proud of there involvement. But I cannot stop just at the Knights of Columbus members. Volunteers
from Raise Home support and Meals on Wheels who are in contact with our seniors every day combined the list of homes to install the alarms in, thank you
Emilie Brown from RAISE and Joanne Klausnitzer from Meals on Wheels. This community project could not have taken place without the support, supplies,
