Knights Supporting Knights
Brothers - We have a few Knight-owned businesses listed up on the Livermore Knights web site...keep them coming...

As Knights, we support each other in so many meaningful ways - faith, fraternity, family, help in times of need.

Quite often, we don't realize that our council is filled with brothers operating businesses that can be of service to us.

Please note that these are not formal endorsements - just links to a website where brother Knights can go to decide if the company / service is appropriate for each individual's need.

Please send link to the webmaster - - if you have a business or service that you would like to include.

The 'Word' from our Sponsor

"Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth."
Matthew 5:5
Did you hear the one ...

A Catholic boy and a Jewish boy were talking and the Catholic boy said, "My priest knows more than your rabbi." The Jewish boy said, "Of course he does, you tell him everything."
