Columbus Centre Closing

Dear Brother Knights, and friends,

Gentlemen, during the January General Meeting we discussed at length status of the Columbus Centre, and options that the Board of Directors were pursing. I regret to announce that the Columbus Centre of South Windsor, the bar and hall operation, and home of the Holy Family Council (4386) is closing its doors to business tonight.

Unfortunately, the bar business has fallen to the point that the operation is no longer financially viable.

The facility and property are listed with a real estate agent, and we hope that we are able to dispose of the property shortly.

Laurie Munn, our facility Manager, is reaching out to advise those who had booked the hall for events of the closure.

Holy Family Council still exists, and I am actively pursing another venue for us to hold our meetings. I had hoped that I would be able to advise you the new arrangements before issuing this statement, but am unable to do so at this time.

Thank you all for your support over the last 60 years. We are saddened to see this come to an end.

Respectfully,

Shawn Searcy
Grand Knight – Holy Family Council
