Some 100-plus Knights and family members took off on Saturday, August 4 for an excursion to Atlanta to watch the Atlanta Braves play the Colorado Rockies.
The trip was organized by Brother Knight Ronnie Muro in conjunction with the annual Knights of Columbus Family week.
Led by St. Patrick Pastor and Council 10567 Chaplain Father Gray Bean, the group left St. Patrick just before Noon. After making a stop in Leeds to pick up Mike and Judy Champ, the bus arrived in Atlanta some two hours later.
The Council 10567 contingent enjoyed the major league baseball atmosphere at Turner Field before settling down to watch the Braves defeat the Rockies in a very good baseball game. The highlight of the game was watching Father Bean dance a jig after a Braves home run!!!
Many thanks to Ronnie Muro, Clay Reece and all who put this trip together. It was a day of fun but also a day of family celebration.
