Faithful Navigator’s Corner – September 2023

Bill Smith

It’s important that we continue to find ways to honor and serve our veterans. If you drive along Route 78, no doubt you have seen Old Glory proudly displayed on many of the overpasses.

A couple of weeks ago, we were proud to host a picnic at North Haven in Glen Gardner where hamburgers and hotdogs were served to many veterans. These men were not only thankful for the food but grateful for company and conversation.

Looking ahead, I am hopeful that we can continue our relationships with North Haven and Lyons. l plan to explore ways to celebrate Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter with the veterans. This may be in the form of gifts and gift cards, holiday meals and other festivities. In addition to offering our help with their year-round events, I would like to see the Knights promote regular volunteer oppo1tunities that allows us to spend time with veterans playing cards, putting puzzles together and simply reminding them that they are not forgotten. Please join me for our next meeting on September 25th at High Bridge where we will outline how the Knights can get involved. And please join me as we pray for those men and women who served our country. Let us put our faith into action as we try to serve them now.
