The St. Barbara Knights of Columbus on Jan. 3 presented checks for $1,382 each to Community Support Services and Helping Hand Center to support those organizations in their work providing social services to the people of Brookfield and surrounding suburbs. The money was raised during the group’s intellectual disabilities drive in 2019.

The Knights of Columbus will join with the St. Louise de Marillac Men’s Club on Feb. 7 to host a corned beef and cabbage dinner. The keynote speaker will be former Chicago Bears kicker and current Illinois Supreme Court Justice Bob Thomas.

The dinner will be held at the north (formerly St. Louise) parish center of Holy Guardian Angels Parish, 1125 Harrison Ave. in LaGrange Park.
