The Knights of Columbus presented the proceeds from their November “Paul Bunyan Breakfast” to the Twin Lakes Literacy Council. Accepting the $1,300 check from the Grand Knight is Heather Powell, the Literacy Council’s Executive Director.
The Mountain Home chapter of the group hosted their first “Paul Bunyan Breakfast” of the year in January to raise funds for charity. The breakfast included fresh scrambled eggs, fluffy pancakes, link sausages, and biscuits with home made gravy, and was held in the Parish Life Center at St. Peter the Fisherman Catholic Church, which is located at 249 Dyer St. in Mountain Home.
The Knights of Columbus were founded on the principles of charity, unity and fraternity in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven, Conn., and a group of parishioners to bring financial aid and assistance to the sick, disabled and needy members and their families.
Today, Father McGivney is being considered for sainthood.
The Twin Lakes Literacy Council is a non-profit organization of volunteers working to improve literacy in the Twin Lakes region. They provide free one-on-one tutoring to people who need better reading, writing, English, basic computer, or math skills.
