The United States Marine Corps issued an official *Certificate of Commendation* to the *Knights of the Holy Grill* from Cypress Church. The Knights were formed about five years ago as a service organization by Dave Austin and a group of men and women from Cypress Church. They cook Bar-B-Que meals and serve food at many local events.
The Knights have often had the opportunity to serve the Marines at Camp Pendleton. During the month of August they put on a fantastic Luau event for the Security Battalion. In addition they assisted the Woman’s Club of Cypress at their Veteran’s tribute event during September.
The Certificate of Commendation was issued by Colonel S. R. Dinauer, Commanding Officer of the Security Battalion. Col. Dinauer commended the Knights for their “outstanding performance in their continued support of the Marines and families of the Security Battalion, Marine Corps Base, Camp Pendleton, California.” He stated that: “The Knights of the Holy Grill’s sustained and noteworthy dedication is greatly appreciated.”
The Knights regularly serve a men’s breakfast to the All Pro Dads on the first Saturday of each month at Cypress Church. During the past year they have been instrumental in helping raise funds for the Buena Park Fine Arts Commission programs and have served at local schools and Boy Scout events as well as the Boys and Girls Club of Cypress.
