Knights of Columbus Joseph C. Carroll Council 5390, at Marion, Iowa, removed old paint and repainted 301 cast steel crosses, each marking the grave of a “Sister of Mercy”, at Mount Calvary Cemetery, at Cedar Rapids, Iowa on September 14, 2013. Members supplied their own power tools and electric generator and discovered that battery-powered tools were not up to the task.
Congratulations to 5390 Knights on being selected by the state for the Round Table Award.
Highway cleanup took place Sunday April 6th. With 13 volunteers this task took 2 hours to complete. The weather was in our favor. Hhowever, with the harsh winter, the ditches showed it. We had 2 1/2 pickup loads of trash, debris, and 14 – 4-foot posts which were snapped by the snow plows including the one for our Knights of Columbus sign.
