On Saturday Dec. 7, Chelsea Knights of Columbus Council #3092 held its annual Grand Knight’s Christmas Party and Awards Night following their participation in the Chelsea Christmas Parade with the St. Mary float.
Grand Knight Ken Klovski handed out service awards to members celebrating membership anniversaries in 2019, and then gave out the highest awards for Knight of the Year and Family of the Year.
Knight of the Year was awarded to Deputy Grand Knight, Dr. Vince Elie for the many projects he’s participated in during the year and the amount of support he provided to the council.
The Family of the Year Award was then given to Al and Connie Letizio who volunteer for many council projects throughout the year; while Al has also retired from the positions of Financial Secretary and Chairman of the annual Lenten Fish Fry following many years of service in those areas.
According to Grand Knight Ken Klovski, “Vince, Al and Connie exemplify what is great about the Knights of Columbus. They are men and their families who unselfishly put their faith into action for the benefit of others.”
The Knights of Columbus are a men’s Catholic family fraternal organization founded in 1882 for the purpose of serving people in need and their families.
