At the September meeting of the St. Mary of Huntley Knights of Columbus Council # 11666, the trustees selected Don Moore and Gary Radaszewski as Knights of the Month for September 2012, recognizing their efforts coordinating the council’s 2012 Campaign for People with Intellectual Disabilities.
Members of the Knights of Columbus do a great deal to assist people with intellectual disabilities. The Campaign for People with Intellectual Disabilities is one of the most popular programs conducted by Knights of Columbus state and local councils. The campaign is a fund raiser in which councils collect donations outside stores and on street corners, usually in the fall of each year. According to Don Moore, “The generosity and enthusiasm of those making donations was remarkable considering the current financial challenges everyone faces as a result of our nation’s economy.”
