It was a proud moment today when Bishop Vann blessed the new Ultrasound machine at the La Habra Life Center. This event was the fruition of the efforts of the Knights of Columbus from our Council 7142 along with the Chapter, and District, organizations .A key program and dedicated effort of our Council is directed toward support for the La Habra Life Center and preserving the life of the unborn. While there were many of our brothers that put in countless hours on programs for the La Habra Life Center, it was the dedicated efforts of Bob Kurtz who, as both a Knight and member of the board of the Life Center, that ultimately resulted in securing an ultrasound machine.
The Ultrasound machine will be an essential tool to safeguard the lives of both the expectant mothers and their unborn child. Our extreme gratitude goes out to Mickie Grothues and her team that operate the Life Center, to the Bob Poe family who made a significant donation toward the funding of the Ultrasound machine and the Knights of Columbus organization who matched all funds raised. With the continued efforts of the Knights of Columbus we hope to see many more of these machines installed and operating and saving lives in Life Centers throughout the state.
