O, those generous Knights of Pythias

The Knights of Pythias are well known for their staunch efforts to help local people and organizations. Here Knights Don Crawford (left) and Paul Daley (right joined with BC Grand Chancellor Kevin Coulter to present Tyler Smith with a cheque for $500. Tyler is the 19-year-old local man who underwent a heart transplant in Vancouver at the end of February. In the last six weeks he has made truly amazing progress and was allowed to come home to Revelstoke for a quick visit. The Knights plan to continue helping Tyler with periodic cheque presentations throughout the year. The money they donate to deserving local folks is raised through the group's regular Thursday bingo. "We couldn't do everything we do without the bingo," Crawford said. True words. David F. Rooney photo
