Knight of the Month: July 2014
posted June 25, 2014
Steve McTeague PGK is a 26 year, 2nd generation EDW Knight.
He has led EDW for the past two years as our grand knight and will continue as a trustee for three more years, whether he likes it or not. He has earned the honorific that is now a part of his name within the Knights of Columbus; PGK - Past Grand Knight.
Steve has, and most likely will continue to, red-coat at hundreds of events on campus and volunteers constantly where needed in support of our charitable endeavors. However, what stands out when you meet Steve is that itís apparent that youíre talking with a true Catholic gentleman in the old-school, positive manner that earns your respect. As his deputy and his shadow for two years Iíve seen him in many circumstances, formal, informal, relaxed and stressed. Steve can honestly be declared one of the best of us. During his tenure we have earned Double-Star status and have grown our membership to nearly 2,000 families. Statistics however do not do his strength of character justice. If you want to calibrate your moral compass due north, see what direction Steve is walking.
In appreciation of Steveís steadfast, forward-looking leadership, EDW will make a donation to St. James parish in his honor.
Knight of the Month: June 2014

I would like to recognize Tom Maguire as Knight of the Month.
Tom is your treasurer on the Columbus Club Board. In this role
Tom has focused on our expenses and how to better present them
to the membership.
Tom also is one of the leaders on the team that brings you the
Family Breakfast each month. Tom handles things for the council
in the front of the house and works well with all our volunteers.
Tom is also head of the club’s marketing committee. In this
role Tom was instrumental in presenting the first “Family Dinner” event we have had up here in a while. It was held on Friday
evening, May 9 and by all accounts was a great success. The team
will soon meet to go over lessons learned so that it is even better
the next time.
Thanks, Tom for all you do, Knight of the Month for June, 2014.
Honor Flight at EDW: Bring your Kids to Thank our Heros
posted May 29, 2014
EDW is proud to be a part of the Honor Flight Network of volunteers. These events are very light duty and uplifting for both the veterans and volunteers. Also, a perfect event for children to participate.
A half hour before the veterans arrive we set the tables. When they arrive in their police-escorted buses we line up, applaud and shake hands. While the veterans eat, we hang out and make sure they have what they need. After their meal a bugler usually perform Taps. Then we applaud again as they leave. All events are hosted in the Main Hall.
Volunteers needed. Please arrive at the listed time if you want to help out and honor our vets.
No need to sign up in advance, just show up at the designated time with a smile and hands ready to clap and shake.

Support KOVAR with New EDW Decal or Magnet.
posted August 13, 2012
Display your EDW pride as you ride around town with this version of the ubiquitous oval car magnet. Visit the EDW "storefront" at CafePress and purchase one or more. Each item is marked up $5 (above the base costs, i.e., CafePress' cost). All of the markup will be forwarded to KOVAR. If this proves popular and successful in raising a little charity cash, more items will be added. So, be the first to get one!

During my tenure as Membership Chairman, I've learned that a too-large percentage of our members fail to get involved for one reason or another. Among those reason, I suspect, are not being sure how and being a little too shy to ask. For the benefit of our "rookies" and "veterans" I've begun to compile a list of different ways to get involved. Some require a committment. Some are laughably easy. All are important to the Council.
If you are looking for a way to get integrated at EDW, please REVIEW THIS LIST. The list is by no means comprehensive -- so if you know of something I've neglected, please let me know and I'll continue to add to it.
