Charter members of Pittston K of C
Clip from an unknown 1948 newspaper (Most likely the Pittston Gazette). Pittston Council 372 was instituted on October 23, 1898.
CHARTER ROLL K-C COUNCIL 50 YEARS AGO.
As members of Pittston Council, No. 372, Knights of Columbus, are observing their Golden Jubilee this week, it seems appropriate to record the names of Catholic men of the Pittston District who comprised the charter membership of the Council a half century ago.
There are at least six of the charter members still alive –
John J. McHale, past grand knight, of 107 Broad Street;
William M. Fay, of 211 Wyoming Avenue, West Pittston,
John A. Foster, of 89 South Main Street;
Frank Jennings, of 442 South Main Street, Sebastopol;
W. H. McCawley, of Wyoming Avenue, Exeter Borough; and
Charles F. Hoban, former supervising principal of schools in Avoca and Dunmore, who now makes his home with his son in South Carolina.
