Past Grand Knight Dinner

News Comments Off on Past Grand Knight Dinner

On October 16th we held our annual Past Grand Knights dinner at The Seville.   The evening started with a cocktail hour followed by dinner.  The actual formal program for the evening began after that.

Current Grand Knight, Gary Pappin, awarded now Past Grand Knight Frank Esposito with a gavel plaque and pin signifying his service from July, 2017 – June, 2019.  Under Frank’s leadership the council continued to flourish with new members joining our ranks to help continue all the charitable works we are known for.

Frank awarded the Knight of the Year to Mark Ariant for his service as Recorder and for all his participation during the past year.  He then presented Family of the Year to two couples:  Wally and Lindy Niemczyk  and Chuck and Florence Graciano.  Bot couples are well deserving for all they do for the Knights, the community, and St. John’s parish.

Joni Lorkowski, Ladies Auxiliary President, awarded Lady of the Year to Florence Graciano.  Father  Nate was on hand representing our Chaplain, Father Gregg, who was out of town.  He thanked the Knights and Ladies for all they do for the parish and community.  The evening ended with a prayer and blessing, just as it had begun with the Illinois Knights 360 prayer.

Here are some photos from the evening.  We had a great turnout.  Thanks to all who attended to make this a special evening of fellowship.
