Council 12150 responds after tornado in Wetumpka

On January 19th, an EF2 tornado hit the city of Wetumpka. The Church of the Holy Spirit Council 12150 immediately started coordinating with local and county Emergency Medical Services as to what needs they could provide for this disaster. The EMS determined there was a need to have onsite feeding of first responders. Brother Knights from Council 12150 responded within hours. During the time onsite, the team fed 90 first responders. The team consisted of Mark Bruton, Perry Burden, Michael Mest and Shane McKenny.  State Deputy commended the men and the council saying, “These men embody our dedication to charity.  We Knights of Columbus always stand ready to help wherever, whenever we are able.  It is an honor to serve those who serve others in our community.”
