Durango Knights contribute to Southwest Catholic Youth Conference

By Paul Petersen
The Durango Knights of Columbus Council #1408 contributed sandwich materials, chips and condiments for 1000 sack lunches for teens throughout the Four Corners area who attended the Southwest Catholic Youth Conference sponsored by LifeGuard on October 17, in Farmington, N.M. 

The Durango Court #1248 of the Catholic Daughters of the Americas baked 1000 cookies to be included in each lunch.  The Knights and their wives assembled the 1000 individual sandwiches and bagged them in Durango.  They were then transported to Farmington where each sack lunch was constructed.  All were proud to contribute time and materials so that youth from Colorado, Utah, New Mexico and Arizona could come together to celebrate their Catholic faith.
