On June 28, 2010 the Council celebrated 50 years of service to the Church and its parish community. Today the Council hosts two Parish Blood Drives (last year we won 2nd place for pints of Blood collected in Nassau County with 263 pints), we assist the Parish Outreach at Thanksgiving and Christmas with food deliveries to the needy, our members regularly volunteer at the St. Catherine’s Feast in various capacities (look for us at the Zeppole Booth, 50/50 and Security), run two fund raisers (Italian Festival & St. Patrick’s Dinner Dance), run the “ Keep Christ in Christmas” Campaign & sell Charitable & Benevolent Raffles. We give two Msgr. Thomas Groenewold Service Awards & two Jack Walpole Academic Achievement Awards at $125.00 each to students at St. Catherine of Sienna School and recently donated $1100.00 worth of pre school toys to their pre school program. We also support scouting and make donations yearly to the “Special Olympics”, we also sponsor an annual “Basketball Free Throw Competition” for children 10 to 14 years of age.
As you can see, we are an active Council looking to expand our involvement in Church, Community, Council, Family, Youth and Membership activities. If you are 18 years of age or older and are a practicing Catholic join the largest Catholic Men’s organization in the world. We invite you to join us, to give of your time and talents.
