Tucson Knights Build Treewells for School

For 5 consecutive weekends, knights of the Bishop Francis J. Green Council # 11855 put in over 535 man-hours building four 10’ x 10’ treewell planters at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic School.  Our biggest challenge was not triple digit temperatures or the monsoon rains but trying to keep our Worthy State Chaplain, Fr. Pat Crino, from hitting the water line with his pick ax.  JUST KIDDING!  BUT…. Fr. Pat was there to lift not only our spirits but also some tools as he sweat right along with the rest of us.  Seminarian Richard Rivera was our “Batchman” mixing the mortar and stucco.  Several family members were also there to help and have fun.  The final coat of paint went on two days before school started.
Our prayers to Saint Joseph the Worker were answered as the project was completed on time.
