"Congratulations Brother SK John Antonacci"
We would like to send congratulations to SK John Antonacci, PGK/FN for his devotion and hard work towards the Silver Rose Program. He received the plaque below from the State Deputy, Bruce DeMolli at the 120th NJ State Knights of Columbus Convention in May 2016. He traveled over 530 miles and allowed 2100 people all over the state to venerate Our Lady of Guadalupe's Silver Rose.
Again, Congratulations from your Brothers in the NJKofCMM.
A job well done, AS USUAL, Brother John.

At the 2014 NJ State Knights of Columbus Convention held on May 16-17 in Wildwood, we were presented with the highest state award, The State Deputy Award. We should be very proud of ourselves that the work we do as Knights of Columbus on motorcycles is recognized by a lot of people all the way to the State Deputy. We would like to thank our State Deputy Andy Lipenta for this award. Below are 3 pictures. One of our table with the award displayed at the convention, one of the award and one of myself and North Chapter President Ed Eismont proudly displaying the award.

From our Worthy State Warden and Past NJKofCMM President Jim Stoever
I received the mid year report on the programs offered by the State Council. You can imagine my pride when I read the following report on the MM. Congratulations and let us continue to build on our accomplishments.
Last year the MM was awarded the State Deputy's award for all the work they did. Needless to say they have not slowed down one bit. They continue to do rides to fund Special projects, and helping the needy, laying flags at veteran's grave sites, and coming to take Vets to Mass at their Veterans hospitals. This group of men are second to none."
Enjoy the day,
