Those who remember ice skating at Forest Lodge as kids don’t recognize the interior of the building anymore, thanks to the church’s renovation and remodeling of the building over the past two years. With the recent addition of a brick plaza at the lower entrance to the building, things have now changed on the outside, too. Knights of Columbus Council 14255 has designated SK Jim Nixon as “Knight of the Month” for his lead role on the project. 

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.
