On December 9, 2013 The Knights of Columbus Council 9475 spread their message “Keep Christ In Christmas” to the Mount Pleasant, SC community and reminded everyone that “It’s Okay to Say Merry Christmas”. This was accomplished through the efforts of brother Knights, their wives and families who spent timeless hours making costumes, banners, collecting Christmas lights and decorations to transform a 36’ long trailer into a lighted Christmas Parade Float featuring a live nativity scene and displaying our theme “Keep Christ In Christmas”.
A manger was constructed and brother Knights, their wives and children portrayed Mary, Joseph, a Christmas angel, three wise men and shepherds. The float was entered in the Mount Pleasant Christmas Lights Parade and placed 1st in the Community Category.
The float was well received by the spectators who made a point to shout “Merry Christmas.” Fourth Degree Sir Knights from Assembly 3243 escorted the float and handed out candy canes with our “Keep Christ In Christmas” theme attached to each one. This was an excellent Family and Community activity.
