The Knights of Columbus in Albion shared its fund-raising success with three Scout groups and also the religious education program at Holy Family Parish. The Knights had an annual Palm Sunday chicken barbecue and raised $1,800 for Pack 164, Troop 164 and Venturing Crew 164. They each were given $600 from the K of C.

The Knights used other fundraisers to buy a 40-inch LED television with a Blu-Ray player for the religious education program at Holy Family Parish. The TV will be used during faith formation classes and youth group social events.
