Our Council’s Knight Hands Program Garners National Recognition


[dropcaps] O [/dropcaps] ur Council’s Knight Hands Service Program received national (and international) recognition this month in a four-page article published in the Knights of Columbus – Columbia Magazine. Early in May of this year Knight Hands program creator/director Allen Reitmeier received notification from Supreme that they would be sending a journalist/photographer team to research and write the story of our Knight Hands program for later publication. We are delighted to announce that it has been published in the June 2016 issue, see below.


The Columbia team visited Knight Hands during a tree clean up service project we did in the front yard of Jim and Mary Russell’s home. The article titled “Hands-On Charity” can be found on pages 20-23.
