On Saturday May 11th, Council #8500 Membership Director Gary Cornellier organized a heartwarming event called "Christmas in May." The deserving recipients of this event were Paul and Kay Young.  Kay has dutifully served as the parish secretary for the Church of the Holy Spirit in Highland for many years.


The main objective of the day was to tackle some tree maintenance tasks, which included cutting, heavy-duty brush hauling, and trimming.  These tasks had become too challenging for Paul, a skilled master gardener, to handle on his own.  Thanks to the collective efforts of many volunteers, the work was completed swiftly and efficiently.


Many hands make quick work!


The majority of the volunteers were Brother Knights from Fr. John Howard Knights of Columbus Council #8500 in Highland. A heartfelt thank you goes out to everyone who participated and supported this wonderful event.  Your dedication and generosity truly made a difference in the lives of Paul and Kay Young.
