The Knights in shining armor come to the rescue! That is, the Knights of Columbus Prince of Peace Catholic Church Council #15337 including: Scott & Cathy Edgar, Scott Greiner, Steve Haworth, Teresa Steward, and Sue & Kevin Lloyd. Over the course of several months, they organized, coordinated, and hosted events fundraising for the new ultrasound for MPS! In addition, several local businesses, churches and many other donors stepped up to help in the effort. To top it off the State of Michigan Knights of Columbus had matching funds to reach the goal for the purchase of the ultrasound machine!
