Mark Your Calendars for the Knights of Columbus Breakfast The Norwalk Knights of Columbus will be holding a pancake breakfast on Sunday, January 20th from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at St. John the Apostle Church, 720 Orchard Hills Drive in Norwalk. The Knights will be serving pancakes, french toast, sausage, scrambled eggs, fruit, coffee, juice and milk. The proceeds will go to benefit the Level 3 Special Education Class at the Norwalk Middle School. The Level 3 class students are learning life skills to help them later in life. Many of these skills are ones many of us take for granted, and many of us may not have known that this was being taught. So come and join the Knights to support this great cause, and more - importantly make known in our community that this cause exists. Thanks to the community for all their support of the Knights and our young people.

Due to the generous support from the community, approximately 8 police cars were filled with food and many families will not be hungry over the next few months. The foodraiser has become a fun tradition for the department. To make the event so successful, the officers donated $750 of their own money, collected corporate sponsorships, and collected individual sponsorships from community members who expressed interest in helping. During the event the officers asked Fareway customers to donate food or cash to support the program. The cash received was then spent by the officers on food as part of the event. All food and all cash collected before and during the event were donated to the Norwalk Food Pantry to be used to support their mission of feeding those in Warren County who may be food insecure. Who knew grocery shopping could be so fun? ' Events at N orwalk Easter .. Public Library 1051 North Avenue Thursday, January Rhyme Time, 10:30 a.m. This storytime focuses on songs and rhymes.
