Another Successful Easter Party

On Sunday the 28th of March, KC 799 held its annual Easter Egg Hunt for kids. The weather was perfect, and the event was held completely outside.  The activities included balloon animals, cookie decorating, seed planting, an egg hunt (of course), and lots of running around and yelling.  The egg hunt used about 1200 eggs.  Jorge Chavez acted as our DJ.

We want to thank our volunteers for pulling off a great event.  And we also want to thank Oliver for providing the food.

Kids’ Christmas Party a Huge Success!

On December 13, KC799 hosted the annual Kids’ Christmas Party. There was food, punch, balloon animals, cookie decorating, and Santa. The St. Pat’s Mothers Club provided a make-it-yourself Christmas ornament as a project as well.

The number of attendees was roughly double last year’s number. We had about 75 kids and about 130 people total. Oliver’s crew kept the food and punch coming.

We would like to thank all of our volunteers this year. Among those who helped out: Chris Widhelm, Joe Martin, the Lucidos, the Trelfords, Melanie Charest, Ski Stanisewski, Rick Alvizo, Gerry Renaud, John Guerra, and others.

Help Our Sisters Distribute Turkeys November 23

We’re joining with KC 6065 (St. Mark’s) to distribute turkeys and groceries at St. James Parish to some very deserving families. The Missionaries of Charity do the selection, and the KCs do the heavy lifting. It all starts at about 9:30am on 11/23 at 2104 Harlandale, 75216 (south Dallas by the Zoo). Mass will start at 9:00 in the church, and then the work begins.

KC799 has been doing this event for several years now. Everyone who went last year had a great time, and it is one of the few opportunities we have to directly interface with, and help, the needy. Please contact Brian Bessner at (or just show up).
