Council Activities

Andy Goza

Council Activities Director

Many of the activities of the Knights of Columbus sound demanding and certainly many are; but that does not mean that others can't be just for fun. Members of our council are friends, neighbors and acquaintances who are just as interested in athletic, cultural, and social activities as you are. Each year the Council Activity Director schedules, sets up and handles all the logistics for the annual gala Appreciation Dinner held each year in January.  In addition the Council Activity Directors sponsor the Awards ceremony each year in August to recognize all those who have served the Council with distinction the past year. Andy served as Grand Knight from 2010-2012. He was voted Knight of the Year 2012-2013. and has earned statewide recognition as the top recruiter in Texas in 2013. He serves as a member of our Degree Team and is a member of the Member Retention committee. Andy joined the Knights in 2008 and he and his wife, Susan and daughter Madison, live in Cedar Hill.
