Knights’ generosity will help the disabled

The Knights of Pythias are helping the disabled by providing the City's Parks, Recreation and Culture Department with a $5,000 grant towards the purchase of a $15,000 system that will allow disabled people to use the change rooms with little or no assistance. The system consists of a special change table and hoist that people can use themselves with a minimum of assistance. Department Director Kerry Dawson (center) was very pleased to accept the cheque from Knights President Bruce Ross on Thursday as Knights Wolfgang Siefert (left) Bill Streaga, John Kalinczuk and Kevin Coulter posed with him. Dawson approached several local service organizations and the Knights were the first to step up and help out. David F. Rooney photo
