Steve, thanks for being an active Knight and an active member of the website community. We are especially thankful that you "liked" the article about our Financial Secretary, Robert Hageman ( Brother Robert has been quietly and faithfully serving the Order as Financial Secretary for nearly 50 years. He attends all council meetings and participates in as many council activities as he can. He and his wife are pillars of the Church, the Knights of Columbus, and our community.
