Grand Knight John Breitsch & Andy Baase

Congratulations to Sir Knight Andy Baase who was selected as the 2014 St. Simon the Apostle Council’s Knight of the Year!

Andy is always available and the first to volunteer for Knights projects and activities as well as doing whatever needs done to help out the parish.  From general maintenance in the church and school buildings to even answering the phones in the parish office, Andy is the “go to guy”.

He was nominated by several members of the council as being worthy of this recognition.

Thanks for all you do Andy!
