Father's Day BBQ June 15, 2014

On a clear blue sky day with the temperature ranging in the early 20s, it was the perfect setting for a Father's Day BBQ. This is an annual event which the council has been having for several years now, whereby the BBQ is offered after the 10.30 a.m. and 12 noon

The brother knights commenced the prep work a couple of days earlier in purchasing the burgers, sausages, buns, condiments ,pop, water and other essential items required to make the BBQ hugely successful.

On Sunday morning, the brother knights along with PGK Gabriel Ogundele and PGK Fred Gamboa event Chair/Co-Chair commenced the preparation of the burgers and sausages and set up the music system along with some tables and chairs to enjoy the beautiful outdoor weather. 

The event was supported by the parishioners, families of the brother knights and well wishers of the parish and council. The net proceeds of this event will be donated to the Vita Manor, Mississauga. For more information on Vita Manor, please visit their web site http://www.vitamanor.org/

Our grateful thanks to the PGKs Gabriel and Fred, Chair and Co-Chair, IPGK Joseph and to our community of brother knights who formed part of the BBQ Team, working with dedication, zeal and camaraderie. The Squires Executive & the Counsellors also provided good support to the brother knights throughout the morning by promoting the event to the parishioners and then assisting with the BBQ. 

Well done to all of the brother knights who generously volunteered their precious time in the preparation of the tickets, posters, sale of tickets during Masses, set-up of the BBQ area, purchase of items, preparing the BBQ, manning the cash station and cleaning-up after the event.
