Organizer of the event was 4th degree Faithful Navigator Joe Scrudato, who would like to thank the following Knights for the help in making this a very special day for our veterans. Joe McGeehan who cooked all of the food and servers: Charlie Butrico, Lenny Kleczkowski, Bob Sanko, Bill Butrico, Tom Walsh, Don Alexa, Steve Belanger, Rich Durso, Tom Frantz, and the world’s best bingo called Phil Thomas.
