Knights of Columbus Council 10567's project to help raise money for new playground equipment at Adamsville Elementary was completed recently when the Council presented a check for $1,228.51 to Susan Remick, the school’s principal.
The funds were raised from the Council's Boston butt sales for Memorial Day.
Past Grand Knight Dale Blanchard headed the project for the Council and presented the check to Ms. Remick at the school. Also present was Kathy McGehee, who spearheaded the fundraiser from the Adamsville side and sold 43 of the Boston butts.
This was a great Community project and our thanks to Dale for heading this up and to all who worked on the project.
