The Star Council Award recognizes outstanding achievement in
membership, insurance and service program activities in their council
communities. To be eligible to earn the Star Council Award, a council must
qualify for the Father McGivney, Founder’s and Columbian awards.
The Father McGivney and Founder’s awards are recognized and
achieved when a council successfully meets and/or exceeds their membership quota
in the fraternal year. A council conducting at least four major programs in each
of the Service Program categories achieves the Columbian Award: Church,
Community, Council, Family, Culture of Life and Youth.
Our Charter, founded in 1997, has achieved this great honor only
twice. Consider becoming a Knight by joining OLL council and help the order in
our parish community and family.
