Brother Joseph D. McGovern's family was named Supreme's Family of the Month for November from New Jersey.  They received this honor due to their commitment to helping others, their charity, and their expression of faith as a family unit.  Congratulations to Brother Joseph D. and family!

 The Council's Giving Tree Project for the children of the First Cerebral Palsy School of New Jersey in Belleville was another first-rate accomplishment by our Brothers and friends of the Council.  All 67 gifts were delivered to the school on Friday, December 15 in time for the children's Christmas Party.  Many thanks to all who helped out.  This was the 18th year of the Council's Giving Tree. 

Coats for Kids Program 

 

thanks to Brothers David Trzepla and Joe Cerreto, Maureen Trzepla, Kim Cerreto, and Marianne Mackey for helping to sort out the coats by sizes and delivering 98 coats to needy children before the storm.

   Peter Briody named the New Jersey State K of C Knight of the Year 

        

         Peter joined the Council in 1999 (sponsored by PGK Rick DePrizio), and since then he has worked endlessly serving us with his time and devotion to the Order's principals.

         He has held several positions, most notably as Grand Knight leading the Council for three years from 2002 to 2005.  He has also acted as the Council Programs Director, Health Services Director, Recruitment Director, and Insurance Promotions.  He in into his second three year term as our Financial Secretary, and does a super job in that vital position.

         On a State Level, Peter has just about single-handedly revived and has tirelessly promoted the Squires and Squire Roses Youth Programs for boys and girls throughout the State for the past several years.  He crisscrosses all over New Jersey, to towns with names like Blue Anchor and Maple Shade, to visit Councils that want to start these youth groups (the mileage he puts on his car you can't believe), and yet he finds time to still be active in our Council

         Our congratulations, pride, and happiness for Peter and his family.  He is indicative of the kind of members we have in the Council and should make us all proud to be Brothers in a great Council whose good works are recognized as they reach out into other communities beyond North Arlington!
