Jim worked with various City of Akron council representatives and departments to obtain engineering and site preparation assistance, construction materials and equipment for the project, which was supervised by Eagle Scout candidate, Chris Morris. Working with the Department of Neighborhood assistance, Jim was also able to coordinate clean up and mulching of the Lodge’s flowerbeds and playgrounds.
Jim is a charter member of the council, a Fourth Degree Knight, and current treasurer of Akron Council Charities, the council’s non-profit affiliate.
The Knights provide volunteer opportunities to all men of the parish aged 18 and above. To support the Council’s causes, write to Akron Council Charities in care of the Knights at the rectory.
