Charity

There is no better way to experience love and
compassion than by helping those in need,
a call Knights answer every day.

Unity

Knights banded together can accomplish more
than any of us could accomplish individually
in support of our Church and priests.

Fraternity

Knights socialize together and take care of each other –
we have each others’ back.

Patriotism

Members of the Knights of Columbus are proud
of our devotion to God and country,
and believe in standing up for both.

Jim Ouimet

First, let’s clarify the French pronunciation of Jim’s last name (WE-may). Jim was part of the foundation of our new efforts operating the concession stand for the Cedar Hill football association this past fall. Jim came early and stayed late just about every week, diligently working in the “fry division” located back behind the stand. “It was a really good crew,” Jim said. “I enjoyed it.” Jim has been with the council since May 2013 and took his major degree about a year later. He graduated from West Texas A&M, spent four years in the Air Force and retired just last May. His most recent position was as an advisor for economics and development for American Energy Partners in Oklahoma City. Jim had signed on to work up there for a year — it turned into 15 months — so he maintained his KC membership here. He and wife Lou will celebrate their 25th anniversary in July. Jim has a grown daughter, a stepdaughter and four grandchildren. They’ve lived in Red Oak for almost 15 years and have been parishioners for six years.
