Knights of Columbus #7423 Fr. Joseph Slomski Council
 
Contact: John Laadt
Post Office Box 415, Westhampton Beach, New York 11978
Phone: 631.878.2853
Thanks to the efforts of Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven and some of his parishioners, the Connecticut state legislature on March 29, 1882, officially chartered the Knights of Columbus as a fraternal benefit society. The Order is still true to its founding principles of charity, unity and fraternity. The Knights was formed to render financial aid to members and their families. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works. The history of the Order shows how the foresight of Father Michael J. McGivney, whose cause for sainthood is being investigated by the Vatican, brought about what has become the world's foremost Catholic fraternal benefit society. The Order has helped families obtain economic security and stability through its life insurance, annuity and long-term care programs, and has contributed time and energy worldwide to service in communities. The Knights of Columbus has grown from several members in one council to more than 13,000 councils and 1.7 million members throughout the United States, Canada, the Philippines, Mexico, Poland, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Panama, the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, Cuba, Guatemala, Guam and Saipan.

The Peconic Land Trust was established in 1983 to conserve Long Island's working farms and natural lands. Since its inception the nonprofit Trust has worked with landowners, communities, municipalities, partner organizations, and donors to protect nearly 11,000 acres of land on Long Island. A common misconception is that the Trust receives monies raised through the 2% real estate transfer tax. That is incorrect. The Trust's funding comes primarily through donations from the public. The Trust's professional staff conducts research and planning to identify and implement alternatives to outright development. While working to conserve the productive farms, watersheds, woodlands, and beachfront of Long Island, the Trust is also protecting the unique rural heritage and natural resources of the region. Throughout the year, the Trust hosts a wide variety of educational and recreational activities that connect people with the natural environment, while introducing the general public to its work throughout the East End of Long Island. The Trust has Stewardship centers in Cutchogue, Southold Bridgehampton and Amagansett and its Main Office is in Southampton. Outreach Manager: Kathy Kennedy
