Council #9657 Blog * Written by pmcconville
The Knights of Columbus Council 9657 of Immaculate Heart and St Emily parishes recently selected Richard and Elizabeth Nuss of Crosslake as the 2019 Family of the Year. This plaque is awarded annually to a family that has demonstrated exemplary performance in support of the church community. Longtime members of Immaculate Heart and the Knights, Dick and Liz have been strong supporters of nearly every program in the church. They have been sacristans for daily and weekend Masses; leaders of the Vocations Committee; tirelessly worked on landscaping and tree planting; chair of the annual Knight’s Fund Raiser for People with Intellectual Disabilities (Tootsie Rolls); food preparation and cleanup at parish dinners and events; and were also charter members of the firewood crew. Dick was also a key member of the finance and building committees for the construction of the new Immaculate Heart Church.
