Knight in Focus
This months Knight in Focus is Eddie Porr and includes some corrections from last month's article.
If you have worked in our Lemonade Booth over the past couple of years, or worked at the AMC Fair, or been to any Business Meetings you will have seen Brother Eddie.
Eddie joined our brotherhood in 2013 looking for more opportunities to serve others; and he has indeed found them.
A 17 year resident of Redondo Beach, Eddie is another great example of a Do'er. Eddie is married to Lisa, who you may have seen and heard speak at masses at American Martyrs encouraging people to join the LINQ groups. Eddie has a son 25, and a step-daughter 28. Eddie is a veteran having spent 10 years in the U.S. Air Force and he has continued his association with the Air Force as a civilian employee now having a total of 27 years with the Air Force. He works in Operations Management and IT at the Los Angeles Air Force Base.
In his spare time Eddie teaches 7th and 8th Grade School of Religious Education at AMC, and teaches Confirmation Years 1 & 2. So if you have children in either of those programs he has influenced your family by imparting teachings of God and the Catholic Church to your kids. To further help kids, he recently signed up to be a school Liason with SSSP. Eddie has held the role of Inside Guard at our Council over the past two years and is a member of the Councils Admissions Degree (1st Degree) team.
As mentioned previously, he manages the KofC Lemonade Booth (along with Brad Wildes) which is a heavy task during those events where we participate such as the MB Hometown Fair and the AMC Fair. So don't be surprised when Eddie taps you on the shoulder puts the squeeze on you.
When Eddie has any other spare time he likes to get out on the golf course and to watch sports. Rarely, Eddie will miss the April meeting as he is taking a well deserved vacation with Lisa to Italy for 2 weeks.
Say Hi to Eddie and if you don't know him introduce yourself. He will be happy to know you and even happier to help you get more involved in Knights activities.
