Vero Beach

It’s been a hard working few weeks. We traveled to Rutherfordton North Carolina to see 660 crosses standing tall.

It took us most of the day to pack everything back up. After a night in a hotel, we left for St Helen’s Catholic Church in Vero Beach Florida.

There, we found a great location on US Highway 1. It gets a great deal of traffic at a 5 way intersection. The site was even more complicated to setup than Rutherford, but we think it is going to be well worth the work for the exposure it will get. We helped crews from Knights of Columbus councils put in the crosses on the first day.

Also pictured is Bob Kwiecinski, District Deputy for Knights of Columbus District 62. He’s the one who arranged the volunteer help from three Knights of Columbus Assemblies (1932 St. Helen’s & Holy Cross, 2194 St. Sebastian and 3297 St. John of the Cross) and four Knights of Columbus Councils (5629, 8009, 12141 and 13153. Faithful Navigator Ron Hunkapiller is overseeing the daily activities of the volunteers.

Now, on Day Six, we see their good work continues:

We have a firm commitment to move the crosses to the Upper Peninsula in Michigan during September, but before that happens, we’ll move the crosses to at least one more Florida location, thanks to help from Bob Kwiecinski and Ron Hunkapiller.
