Fifty years ago, a group of Catholic Gentleman got together and felt they could make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate and help the area grow.
So they decided to form the Precious Blood Council 5147 of the Knights of Columbus here in Bath. The core values of the organization are Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism.
The Knights primary function here in Bath has been to help the elderly and the less fortunate and promote good family values throughout the area.
For the past 25 years the Knights have sponsored the Care and Share program, which provides food baskets for over 200 families in the local area during the holiday season. The Knights also support several local churches. St. Mary’s in Bath, St. Gabriel in Hammondsport, and St. Stanislaus in Bradford.
The Knights also support a number of area organizations, to include the Bath VA Medical Center Recreation Department, Santa’s Day Off, the Bath Haverling High School College fair for over 15 years of service and the Bath Fire and Police Departments along with many others.
Over the years the Knights membership has stayed strong; as of today the group has over 117 members ranging from one to fifty years of service.
