Knights Ladies Auxiliary celebrates 50th anniversary, CCB receives grant dollars

The Knights of Columbus Council 6168 Ladies Auxiliary celebrated its 50th anniversary luncheon on May 25 by awarding a $1,000 scholarship to Jillienne Lapid of Lecanto High School, a $500 scholarship to Morgan Tomasko of Withlacoochee Technical College and more than $1,500 in grants shared by Citrus County nonprofit organizations.
The $1,500 was shared by Citrus Abuse Shelter Association, the Pregnancy and Family Life Center, Citrus County Blessings, the Citrus County Family Resource Center and the Community Food Bank.
With proceeds from its own fundraising efforts, the Ladies Auxiliary every year awards charitable gifts to county nonprofits, a scholarship to a deserving female Citrus County Catholic high school senior, and a “careerist” scholarship.
