KNIGHT OF THE MONTH
December's Knight of the Month is SK Ray Stone for entertaining everyone as the Christmas Social.
November's Knight of the Month is Dave Deming for his outstanding volunteerism.
October’s Knight of the Month is Lou Trenta for his regular volunteerism and especially in the last couple month for helping with the Car Raffle.
September’s Knight of the Month is Tim Sullivan for stepping up over the past two months with the Golf Outing, Car Raffle, and Community Pregnancy Center and Furniture Moving project.
August's Knight of the Month is Don Fraraccio for stepping up during the Akron Arts Expo to park cars and sell much needed car raffle tickets.
July’s Knight of the Month is Chancellor Kevin Janezic for stepping up to fill the Family Director last year right after returning from overseas and his over the top work on the Rotary Planting project and beautification of Forest Lodge.
The council's Honorary Knight of the Month is Mrs. Patty Smith, who helped prepare the Mull-Hawkins traffic circle garden for planting this year. The garden is much larger than it seems to those driving by, requiring about 35 flats of plant material. Weather and scheduling conflicts made preparation difficult this year, making Patty's help all the more valuable. Patty is the director of St. Sebastian's pre-school, where she also teaches. Her husband is Past Grand Knight, Bernie Smith.
Charter member Ken Butler, a Fourth Degree Knight, was honored in May for taking leadership of the council's car raffle. Launched last month, the fundraising effort hopes to raise $40,000 for the Knights' scholarship fund, financial aid to our seminarians, and related council programs. The car raffle runs through mid-October and replaces the Knights' regular 52-week raffle.
Third Degree member Mike Fallucco, council Advocate, was recognized in April for his work as chair of the council's "Measure Up" program. Each year, approximately 400 KofC councils throughout the state join to collect about $400,000 for support of individuals with developmental disabilities. A substantial portion is returned to the the local councils for use in their own communities. The St. Sebastian council's proceeds support The ARC of Summit County.
