We are raising money along with our Columbiettes and the Brother Knights from Mt Carmel council for the Nurse family. Mr Nurse who is a brother knight recently had a severe stroke.
Our Third Annual Adult Backyard Olympics was such a great success! Over 200 people joined us for a day full of fun, food and friendly competition on June 23, 2018.
Due to the generosity of our sponsors and friends over the last three years, we have purchased 132 wheelchairs through the Knights of Columbus Wheelchair Initiative. These wheelchairs are distributed locally to individuals, to organizations such as Castle Point VAMC, and to churches and schools. This year we were also able to make donations to Julie’s Jungle (a playground for children of all abilities), the DC 10-13 Foundation (an organization that helps those in law enforcement during times of hardship and illness), and the 105th Airlift Wing Alumni Association (an organization that assists both active duty members and veterans).
Our Fourth Annual Adult Backyard Olympics is scheduled for Saturday, June 15, 2019. This year we will be, once again, raising money for the Global Wheelchair Mission, Dutchess County 10-13 Foundation, and the 105th Airlift Wing Alumni Association. We have also added Hudson Valley Guns & Hoses, a local organization that works together to provide support and financial assistance to firefighters and law enforcement who are injured, sick or killed while in service.
We would like to ask for your support. We have enclosed a brochure with sponsorship information. We certainly would appreciate anything that you can do, and are very grateful for your support. Why not put together a team and join us for a great day of fun? We look forward to hearing from you.
Peter J. Cassidy, Chairman
