To: Worthy Grand Knights Rafael Johnson Council 81 and Bernie Gillon Council 5724
WGK Jay Woodman Council 85 asked me to convey to you and your Councils and especially our three Councils’ Worcester State Hospital Chairmen, Brother Knights Rich Kearns, Rich MacDonald and Chuck Foster, the following story about our three Councils’ thirty year commitment sponsoring summer picnics and Christmas parties to the children of Worcester State Hospital.
One day, Jay discovered an acquaintance was an employee of the hospital and when he started to say he was a member of the Knights of Columbus, she stopped him right there and finished his sentence for him. She knew all about our visits to the children there and how much she, fellow staff members and especially the children appreciate them, and then she said, “a month or two prior to each event, invariably the children will be excitedly talking about it among themselves in great and eager anticipation — the Knights are coming”.
Jay wanted you to know just what a difference we BK’s make other peoples’ lives and especially the children of Worcester State Hospital over these many years.
Please pass on to your Council members with a big thanks for all that you do.
