The Knights of Columbus provided a St. Patrick’s dinner for 36 homeless veterans at the St. Francis House Veteran’s Rehabilitation Center in Little Rock. Knights Terry Theisen, Bill Nosek, Bob Kulas, Ray Ambrozich, Mike Murphy and Tom Donnelly served the vets Irish stew and soda bread as well as desserts provided by Knight’s wives and several ladies of the American Legion Auxiliary.
The Patrick J. Sullivan Council 10208 and the Father Victor A. Bieberle Assembly 2316 of Hot Springs Village join together quarterly to prepare and serve dinners for up to 50 homeless veterans during each visit. Knights also host bi-monthly socials with finger food and treats for the veterans and sometimes their children. For more than five years quarterly meals have been provided — often for Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas or other holidays like St. Patrick’s Day.
