Thanks Knights of Columbus and St. Vincent de Paul
On Thanksgiving Day, the Knights of Columbus and St. Vincent de Paul in Kingman provided a Thanksgiving dinner to local residents. It was a heart-warming feeling to see moms and dads with their children and our elderly enjoying themselves, including many who would have spent this day alone.
We would like to personally thank everyone who donated to this worthy cause. The generosity of this community will always be remembered. A special and huge "thank you" to Chef Michael Gaul and his students, Steven Davies and Mickey Anderson, and to our sponsors: Martin Swanty Hyundai, Kingman Regional Medical Center, A-1 Chiropractic, Hualapai Mountain Medical Center, Desert Road Riders Motorcycle Club, Rainbow Diner, Smith's, Wal-Mart, Kingman Furniture, Chicago Title, Stewart Title, Keller Williams Real Estate, and the parish members of St. Mary's Church.
And thank you to all the volunteers who helped serve and clean up throughout the day: Jose and Felipe Chavez, David, D.J., Stephen and Matthew Hunter, Anthony Caciagli, Renee and Regan Periera, Karon Rapue, Deborah Adams, Joe, Colleen and Sarah Machado, Ernie, Jake, and Michael Negrete, Fernando, Jennifer, Fernando II, Eric, Izzy, Emma, Tori, and Kimber Velez, Julie B., Glen Thompson, Martha Blakenburg, Councilmen Ray Lyons, Bianca Sapien, Venessa Smith, Mary Forowsky, Ron and Betty Sliva, Richard, Rina, Evan and Michela Rabaiotti.

Jesus multiplied the fish and loaves, and on Thanksgiving Day He also multiplied the volunteers and donations.
May the Lord Bless everyone.
