Board Chairman Jack McGrath communicated the importance of this Ultrasound Machine while thanking the Knights of Columbus for their generosity and commitment to Protecting the Unborn. Executive Director Nancy Peterson also communicated her thanks to the K of C along with our State Warden Charles McCuen III recognizing the great work that's being done at these Pregnancy Centers opening the hearts and minds of those facing difficult decisions.

Many thanks to all who participated and donated that may not be mentioned, please know that without all of you none of this would be possible.

And last but far from least, let us not forget Supreme Council Knights of Columbus for their matching funds program which has reached its original goal of 1,000 Life Saving Ultrasound Machines Order wide.
