Eddie Byrne’s family have been parishioners at Saint John Neumann since 1988, and Eddie became a Knight and joined the Family of Man Council in 1994. Our council wants to recognize Eddie and his family’s contributions to a very successful food drive that the council conducted for the Cornerstones food bank. Eddie initiated, planned and coordinated the operation, and his daughters, Kerianne and Irelynn, promoted it on social media platforms, which greatly increased the number of donations. The council collected and delivered more than 2,800 pounds of food and supplies to the food bank.
Family of the Month
Keith George’s family became parishioners at Saint John Neumann in 2002, and Keith became a Knight and joined the Family of Man Council 7566 in 2006. Our Council wants to recognize the George family’s recent thoughtful and generous act of kindness that allowed our Brother Knights to share a wonderful meal for our June virtual social meeting, after months of forced separation due to COVID-19. They prepared a delicious meal of smoked ribs and sides, and ran curb side pick up in our parish parking lot for more than 40 of our Brother Knights and our Chaplain.
