Attention Fourth Degree Knights


I have located the missing pictures of the Past Faithfull Navigators - If you were a PFN and had your picture hanging in the old Club Room and would like to have it back please contact me. Also if you know of a PFN family who would like the photo do likewise.  We no longer have any place to display our memorabilia at our new location.  Contact Tom Podeszwik PGN/PFN  at 586-779-0787 or my e-mail - Wishing you all a Happy & Prosperous New Year
