Monseignor Hugh MacPherson Council 14596 2017 Toy Drive

Council 14596 St Andrews Annual Toy Drive (This was their 7th year), see attachment of the newspaper articles of the 2017 Toy Drive when we we provided toys, clothing and footwear to 149 families (323 children) in the Antigonish Town and County.

Brother Knights donated approximately 1000 hours of their time from Nov 27th to Christmas Eve to make this happen. In addition, family and friends of Brother knights donated 300 hours for a total of 1300 hours donated to the project.

This is a project that we get better at every year and the community at large is taking a growing interest in and continue to be very supportive of.

I am very proud of our Brother Knights and their families and friends who came out and made this happen–again. I believe they deserve a Community or Family award or both depending upon where you feel this fits best.

Hockey Knight in Pictou 2017

The 8th Annual Hockey Knight in Pictou (2017) –  was a success
all Leafs and Canadian fans who were at the Hall tonight when I say thank you to Fred Dobson and his committee for a great night. Our Worthy State Secretary Jim MacDonald born in Springhill came to our event tonight with his Hockey stick signed in 1957 by Maple Leafs. He was given this hockey stick because in 1957 there was a mining disaster in Springhill and the kids of the parents killed were given a full uniform and a signed hockey sticks (Jim still has his).
