On Saturday, April 21, 2012, the St. Mary of Huntley Knights of Columbus and their families joined together in the Huntley Adopt-a-Highway Program, cleaning the roadway on Kruetzer Road from the Kruetzer Road entrance to the St. Mary’s Catholic Church west to the railroad tracks. The council will clean this section of roadway twice each year, in April and October.
When the Village of Huntley called local businesses and organizations to participate in the Adopt-a-Highway program, the St. Mary of Huntley Knights of Columbus Council #11666 signed up for the Kruetzer Road segment as part of the council’s service activities supporting the local community.
When asked about the support from the council members, Chairman of this activity for the Knights, Sir Knight Tom Lentz said, “We had great support from my brother Knights and their families. It was also great that Frances Kruetzer came out to help and visit with the large group that came out. We expect to have a great turnout in October, too. It is a way for all of us to give back to the community.”
The Knights of Columbus is an international Catholic family fraternal service organization with nearly 1.8 million members in over 14,000 local councils. Last year, Knights donated 72 million volunteer hours and $151 million in charitable and benevolent causes, sponsoring projects to benefit their church, councils, communities, families and youth.
