Knight of the Month January 2015: Ed Lenart, PGK

Ed has been the Youth Chairman for the council for some time now, and once again this year is running the Free Throw Championship program for our council held every January. He also stepped up in a big way when the coolers in the hall failed. Not only did he find new coolers and arrange for the sale, he then managed the transportation, installation, and removal of the broken ones. Ed also arranges for our Monday Night NFL parties in the fall. Congratulations Ed and thanks!!
