Grateful for support

To the Editor:

The gym at St. John Vianney School was the place to be last Saturday. Masses of folks were intently making bids on more than 300 items donated by generous businesses and individuals in our community.

More than 50 Knights of Columbus members were keeping a watchful eye over the silent auction, assisting in the live auction and tallying up our bids. They even helped me by carrying out my “stash” of purchases. Prior to this, the Knights were out securing items, setting up this huge event and doing the marketing.

The most wonderful part is that all of this was done to benefit Martin County Mentoring, Fairmont Area Kinship and Southern MN ARC.

We couldn’t ask for a more caring and generous community. A special thank you to the Knights of Columbus and all who gave of their time and resources to help us serve the youth and folks with disabilities in our community.
