Members of the Knights of Columbus take a break from the busy kitchen as they prepare a heisler sausage supper for Stettler and area community

Knights of Columbus fundraise $2K through their sausage supper

The funds raised will be used to support the needs of the parish and the community.

The Knights of Columbus hosted their annual Heisler sausage supper at the Christ-King Church on Sunday evening, raising $2,000 before expenses with about 150 attending from the community.

“We will be using these funds to contribute to both our parish and to the needs of our community,” said Luke Gamache, who was the co-chair for the event and is the program director for the Knights. “We have helped families in need, given donations to the food bank, supported missionaries and contributed to education bursaries of youth starting secondary education.”

Having been with the Knights for almost 20 years, Gamache said that what attracted him to the organization was strong Christian values and ethics.

“I joined because the organization supports and promotes strong Christian and moral values,” Gamache explained. “Many of our members work countless hours raising funds to provide help to those who are in need, no matter whether they are a part of our parish or just the community.”

Gamache said that social clubs like theirs are an essential part of any community.

“We not only provide help for those in need but also the organization provides a fraternal support system for the men of our parish,” Gamache added. “We are able to support and encourage one another to live a life consistent with our Christian beliefs, which motivates us to continue our charitable works.”
