The Knights of Columbus provide many great services to their communities and also provide Robert Proctor an avenue through which to give back. For ten years, the Proctor family has been responsible for organizing the annual Easter egg hunt at the local church.

A brief background
The Knights of Columbus was founded to give insurance benefits to its members. As odd as that sounds by today’s standards, but in a time before insurance, medicaid, and Social Security, if the primary income earner of a household died or was unable to work, the family would fall onto very hard times. In such cases, those fortunate enough to members of fraternal orders, like the Freemasons, would receive aid. However, Catholics were harsh marginalized and discriminated against in America at this time. They were banned from the majority of the organizations with the potential to give aid. So, Father Micheal J. McGinvey of New Haven, Connecticut founded the Knights of Columbus in 1882. All the members paid into a communal fund and those who were in need would receive aid. As the landscape of insurance changed in America, the Knights of Columbus shifted their goals as well. They still offer life insurance and long term benefits, but they now focus on local charity and community service.
