Grotto gets picnic table donation

WEST BEND – Area Knights of Columbus groups have joined together to donate picnic tables to the Grotto of the Redemption. Led by volunteer Mike Kohlhaas of West Bend, the District Knights from Emmetsburg, West Bend, Humboldt, St. Joe, Algona and Bancroft donated six picnic tables; the Knights of Columbus from St. Joe then donated 5 more. Mike Kohlhaas delivered all the tables.

Grotto Director Mary Straub Lavelle said the tables are perfect for the Grotto picnic and camping areas.

“Some of our older tables are in disrepair and every year we have to repaint tables,” she said. “These are beautiful and will never need paint.”
