On Tuesday Nov 9th, I had the priveledge of attending the dedication of the updated and rennovated kitchen at Rising Stars Academy in Warren. The Knights of Columbus have been active in it’s support of Rising Stars for many years.
Don Campbell was a charter member of our Council. Back in the day, when we were a young struggling Council, Don organized a Casino Bus Trip as a fund raiser. Later, his son-in-law Mark Prentiss joined. Mark and his wife, Don’s daughter, Debbie founded Rising Stars. From that point on, all the proceeds of our Bus Trip are donated to further their good works.
Below, State Deputy Walter Winkle discusses the original grant from the State Council and offers an additional $10,000. Later, Joe Suminski, PGK and District Deputy #124 offers Debbie the proceeds from this falls Casino Bus Trip.
All of Don’s children were present for the dedication.
