  • — Hawley Knights of Columbus Council #797 were recently presented with a plaque from The Arc, Wayne County, for collecting $7 per member in the 33rd Annual Measure Up Campaign.
    During this campaign Knights of Columbus sell rulers to "measure up." Collected funds support programs for developmentally challenged individuals in the local area, specifically the Dyberry Day Camp and other activities for older citizens.
    The Dyberry Day Camp serves 55 developmentally challenged youth from Wayne and Pike County each July for 20 days of leisure time activity. Additionally, the Hawley Knights yearly sponsor a picnic barbecue for the camp, serving campers hotdogs, hamburgers and French fries.
    Honesdale Knights of Columbus #363 also annually participate in the Measure Up Campaign. The Honesdale Knights yearly treat the youngsters to an ice cream social on the last day of camp.
