On Saturday, December 20, 2014, we held Our Annual combined Knights/Columbiettes Christmas party. The council was beautifully decorated for the festivities. It was a fun filled night with great food, great raffles, great music, great laughs and great people. Santa (Vinny Nerone) himself even stopped by to say hello for a while and gave a gift to all the women. John V. Arcate (PGK,FDD) took the mic in leading the whole group in singing Christmas carols.
The Children’s Christmas Party was held on Sunday December 14th from 1 PM to 4 PM at St. Finbar’s Cafeteria in Brooklyn. There was Food, Refreshments, Santa and Christmas Gifts for all the Children. We hosted children from HeartShare and our Council’s members. We also had an entertainer making sculptured balloons for the children. All in all everyone had a great time as always. But the main star of the party was Santa who had gifts for all the children.
On Tuesday Dec. 9, our Council hosted HeartShare Special Adult Christmas Party for the Doonan-Drake Residence at 300 East 18th Street in Brooklyn, NY. We supplied and served dinner and desert to the residents, visitors and staff. After dinner we headed to the living room to await “Santa” with gifts for the residents. There are no words that can explain the feeling you receive from these adults who do not know us but realize that someone is doing something happy & nice for them. We thank HeartShare for allowing us the privilege to interact with these “special” people.
