K of C parish council scores with 5K charity road race

Local Knights of Columbus Bernardo Council 1350, serving the parishes of St. Joseph and St. Margaret Mary in Shelton, held for the 25th year a very successful 5K Charity Road Race on Sat., April 23, 2016. The annual event that raises funds for the Knights’ charitable works took place on the Derby “Greenway” walking/running/bicycle roadway. Organized again this year by Brother Knight John Niski (pictured above in center, holding sign), many knights and their family members pitched in to help on what turned out to be a beautiful spring day. Chartered in 1908, the Bernardo K. of C. Council 1350 meets on the fourth Thursday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at the “30 Fairmont” house on the St. Joseph Parish campus. For more info, contact Grand Knight Jeff Pearce at gkjeff@outlook.com.
