Why Am I a Knight?

By Roger Bissen

I am a Knight so I can service my community as a Catholic gentleman through faith, fellowship and patriotism. When I was 18 years old I had the urge to be a servant in my church and apply my skills to help anyone that was in need of them. I wanted to accomplish this through labor and mentoring. I have been a Knight for 33 years and every year is more rewarding than the last.
