October Knight Life Article

Greetings!  Summer is officially behind us and Halloween is just around the corner.  Ladies U-Knighted met on September 5 and we are forging into fall with many fun and exciting events.  LUK wants to thank all of you once again for your gracious donations and charitable support to the baby shower held to benefit “Gabriel Project” and “A Women’s Choice.”  Special thanks to our Anonymous donor – your gift will go a long way to provide help to these young women.

We also would like to thank all of you who stopped by the Ladies U-Knighted table on Labor Day.  We always enjoy promoting our group and chatting with all of our friends, members, families, and potential members.  Congrats to Art Gamotis for winning the 50/50 raffle.

There is less than a month to go before the 10th Annual Halloween Party.  (See ad in this month’s Knight Life.)  As always, LUK members, fellow Knights, and the Columbus Club are teaming up to offer you an exceptional experience.  The Adults-Only party will begin at 9:00 pm on Saturday, October 26.  For one night, the Old Council Home will be transformed into the house on haunted hill.  MS Project will journey from Transylvania to share their music.  It’s time for you to think about a fun and unique Halloween costume.  You could win one of several prizes in the annual costume contest.  As always, there will be plenty of weird and wonderful food, no cover charge, a cash bar, and a live band.  This is an event that you do not want to miss.

Because of the cooperation, dedication, and creative talents of so many people, this party continues to be one of the more successful events year after year.  For those of you that would like join in and help decorate the Old Council Home for this wild and wonderful party, please stop by the Old Council Home on Friday, Oct 25, after 7:00 p.m.  If you are interested in providing food for the party or helping with the clean up on Sunday, Oct 27, please contact Jo Balsamo Wood @ balsamowood@verizon.net, 703-263-1185.  Your outstanding support is always appreciated.


Please join Ladie’s U-Knighted in wishing Nanette O’Neill (10/10), Nancy Rougeux (10/19) and Liz O’Connell-Edmunds (10/31) a very Happy Birthday.  The next Ladies U-Knighted meeting is October 3 at 7:30.
