The Prince of Peace (POP) Catholic Church Knights of Columbus received four awards at the recent Knights of Columbus Alabama state convention. Vic and Bette Graffeo received the “Alabama Family of the Year” award for their dedication and service to the POP community. Nick Cvetetic was awarded “Knight of the Year” for his service to the POP Knights and the church. In addition, the POP Council received an award for their efforts in connection with the “Keep Christ in Christmas” poster contest in which POP school student, Natalie Sandlin, was a contest runner-up. Finally, Grand Knight Gerald Buford accepted the very first state award for “Outstanding Domestic Church Activity” on behalf of the POP Council. The honor was bestowed upon the Council as a result of the many service projects that the Knights completed throughout the year as well as their fundraising activities that support not only the school and church’s needs, but also to the special needs community throughout Birmingham. †
