The building that houses Burbank’s chapter of the Knights of Columbus was rededicated on Friday after undergoing months of work to repair fire damage.
Located at 134 S. Glenoaks Blvd., the structure caught fire last May after a blaze engulfed a neighboring law office and the flames spread.
It took about five months of work to restore the structure, which has been home for the Burbank Saint Cabrini Council of the Knights of Columbus since its beginning in 1951.
“It’s really nice to be back in the facility where we spent so many years,” said Felix Rodriguez, the Grand Knight for the local chapter. “It’s amazing how you realize you miss something when it’s gone.”
Founded in 1882, Knights of Columbus is the world’s oldest Catholic fraternal organization and it focuses on community-service efforts aiding the needy.
