Knight of the Month

Each month a Knight of this Council is selected the Knight of the Month because of his contribution to the success of the Council and/or by his actions that demonstrated his commitment to the principles of Charity, Unity, and  Fraternity.   He could be awarded Knight of the Month for his efforts on a specific event or an accumulation of actions that warrant his selection. Nominations are garnered by members of the Retention Committee.  The merits of these nominees are then discussed  until the committee is in agreement of a single to be awarded the honor of Knight of the Month

Any Knight can nominate a family for consideration by the Family Director.  All Knights in good standing are eligible to receive this award.
