St. Patrick's Dinner for homeless veterans

Published: March 18, 2019   

The Knights of Columbus provided a delicious St. Patrick’s dinner for 36 homeless veterans at the St. Francis House Veteran’s Rehabilitation Center in Little Rock. KnightsTerry Theisen, Bill Nosek, Bob Kulas, Ray Ambrozich, Mike Murphy and Tom Donnelly served the vets Irish stew, soda bread, whipped butter and plenty of desserts provided by Knight’s wives and several ladies of the American Legion Auxiliary.

The Patrick J. Sullivan Council 10208 and the Fr. Victor A. Bieberle Assembly 2316 of Hot Springs Village, AR join together quarterly to prepare and serve dinners for up to 50 homeless veterans during each visit. Knights also host bi-monthly socials with lots of finger food and treats for these deserving men, women, and sometimes their children. 

For over five years quarterly meals have been provided -- often for Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or other holidays such as this event. The Knights gratefully acknowledge the appreciation expressed by the veterans and staff at St. Francis House. The Knights deepest and heartfelt joy comes from the opportunity to show their thanks for the service and sacrifice of these patriots, in a tangible way, by giving a little back to them in their need.
