Branson Knights donate to Salvation Army

2,400 POUNDS OF FOOD—Knights of Columbus Council 6470 Grand Knight Patrick Guidry (left) and Joe Andrle (right) presented Salvation Army Lieutenant Shawn DeBaar (center) with a check for $520. The home parish for Knights of Columbus Council 6470 is Our Lady of the Lake, Branson. The money was collected at the Knights Christmas Party rather than the usual gift exchange. “We wanted to reach out in a meaningful way,” Guidry said. “Ours is a church that strives to live out the Gospel, and the Knights hope to show we care about our community.”  Lt. DeBaar said the donation will be used to purchase over 2,400 pounds of food that will be distributed to people in the area over the holidays. This is the second year the Knights of Columbus Council 6470 has assisted the Salvation Army during the Christmas season. Last year, the Knights donated numerous toys to the Salvation Army Angel Tree Program. (Submitted photo)

Mata chine is both a dance and a symbolic reenactment of various aspects of both the Hispanic culture and the indigenous tribes that were met in the New World.
