Knights of Columbus 1504
Fraternity is one of the Keywords for Members of the Knights of Columbus. On reading that the Father Funcken Council 1504 established in 1901 and had celebrated their Centenary in 2010, i had to get to meet them.
Thus on the last morning of my visit on my visit, i called upon the Grand Knight for permission to pay a courtesy visit. GK Brian Scmalz graciously said anytime. I arrived at the Buildings in Guelph St, to be met by members busy making Nativity scenes for the 14 Roman Catholic Parishes in en from which this Council gets it members. Conversations found much in common between their and our own Divine Infant Council 7873 in Orleans, leading me to initiate Twinning between our two Councils.
AN impressive new home that had been Blesses by The Archbishop just over a year ago, Many Activities and projects personifying what Membership to the organisation means.
Their E-waste Recycle Drive, Our Everyday Heroes with Fire Fighters supporting Kids in Hospital, Alarm for Life, Coats for Kids, Family Appreciation Day and many others, do rise funds for the needy, provide opportunities to help others less fortunate and raise the visibility of an organisation of members who want to serve and assist others

Puslinch Lake is a park not far from the Kitchener-Waterloo region that provides excellent opportunities for those who enjoy outdoor activities of all kinds. The park can be reached by taking the 401 east from Kitchener to exit 284 (Puslinch Line), turning right and then taking the first left. The area is not in fact a conservation area or a national park, so signage is pretty basic and it's easy to get lost. Once you're in the park, there are trails that are well worn, but not marked. If walking, it's best to stay around the area near the large ponds and lakes, as these are the most frequent paths for walkers and hikers. The less-walked paths that go farther east are the favourites of bikers, and they are usually rougher. It can take up to 2 or 2.5 hours to be able to get all the way around the park, and that usually includes time for getting lost. It's best not to visit right after storms, as the area gets quite muddy, and to bring bug spray during the summer months to avoid the worst of the mosquito bites. Most people tend to stay around the lake near the entrance and the two ponds (one north-east of the lake, and the other directly east through some of the forest). The smaller lake in the forest has some decent beaches, as far as beaches go in the area.

Pioneer Park is actually in Cambridge, right off of Hespeler Road. It forms the eastern part of Homer Watson Park, and clings to the eastern shores of the Grand River. Pioneer Park is not nearly as spectacular as Homer Watson Park, largely because it lacks the views of the river and the surrounding area. There is a neat little tower, but much of the park is designed for children and young families, as the surrounding area is heavily residential and has many new developments popping up. Still, it is a cute little area for half-day trips, especially with a dog.
