Knights of Columbus Groundbreaking


An organization in Pittsburg that lost it's building to a fire in May of 2011, breaks ground for it's new site.

Members of the Knights of Columbus Council #883 tossed some dirt this afternoon at 12th and north Joplin, where their new facility will be built. The Knights former hall was damaged by a fire that consumed Beitzinger Hardware and Bud's Jewelry.

Members say they like their new location because it is close to the catholic schools.

"There are a lot of Knights Councils in the state of Kansas that do not have their own building and use a church facility or community facility but we have always had our own building and we just feel like we like to have a building that we think is ours and have functions that we can carry out" says member Roland Dalrymple.

The building is expected to be complete this fall.
