Family of the Month Archives
Each month a family is selected to receive the Family of the Month award because of the contribution the family made to the welfare of the Council or the Parish community in general. Consideration is given to all family members when selecting the Family of the Month. Good works come in many forms and all will be considered when making this selection. Nominations for Family of the Month are accepted, discussed and voted upon during the regular Officers and Directors meeting held the 3rd Tuesday of each month. Any Knight can attend this meeting and nominate a Knight and his family for this award. All Knights in good standing are eligible to receive this award. The Family Activity Director administers this award from nomination through awarding of the certificate.
