Family of the Month – October 2015

Grand Knight Nick Kleinhaus presented the award for Family of the Month to Jack Ramsden at the Tuesday Oct 6, 2015 meeting.

Jack and Juanita Ramsden

The Ramsdens again played a quiet-but-substantial role in the success of the parish’s recent Fall Festival. They coordinated pickups of furniture and other large and heavy items for sale during the festival’s rummage sale for months before the actual two-day event. Jack was also literally picking up many of the items along with fellow council member Billy Callender. This required duty early on many a weekday morning and some weekends. The Ramsdens have been doing this for years. Jack joined the Knights in September 2012 and took his major degrees in May 2013. He is one of 8157’s three Trustees. He and Juanita, married for 22 years, went through RCIA together in 2008-09 and jumped into parish life. They co-chair Holy Spirit’s Adult and Family Ministry Commission, belong to the Zone Shepherds and Social Committee and added to that involvement during the parish’s portion of the recent diocesan capital campaign.
