Community Service Dinner

Bel Air Council Holds Annual Community Service Dinner

Tuesday, March 18th, Bel Air Council held it’s Annual Community Service Dinner.  Once again, following the Belmonte Mantra; “It didn’t happen if there were no pictures;” Council leadership enables you to view the photos taken by our resident photography expert, Mike Eaves: even if you were busy and could not attend.

Thanks go out to Pat Ruckle and John Knapstein who organized the event; Dick Kozlowski and Sharon DiMateo who managed the kitchen and Karen Warner who managed our wait staff provided by The John Carroll School: Emily Stancliff; and Brad Wescott.

The night was about honoring four servant leaders of our Community.  Servant leaders who serve because they are motivated by love and humility.  Jesus is the perfect example of servant leadership as he humbled himself and became a servant of all.  If you recall: “whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant,” and “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

The dinner enabled us to learn a little more about these four servant leaders and come away with a better understanding of why the Knights of Columbus and Bel Air Council take time every year to honor men and women like the four we met Tuesday night:

– DFC Grant Krulock – Police Officer of the Year

– Jake Hollin – Catholic High School Teacher of the Year

– Lisa Komondor – Catholic Elementary School Teacher of the Year

– Asst. Cpt. Rob Claridge – Firefighter of the Year
