Council Awards


Council #3744 has maintained a tradition of charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism in its programs and services from its founding in 1953.  Each of our active members and their families are greatly valued for the special talents they share with the Council. To recognize extraordinary involvement by members, the following awards (among others) are presented each year:

Knight of the Year recognizes an individual Brother Knight for outstanding dedication and service to the Council

Family of the Year honors a Brother Knight and his family that exemplifies the fullest practice of Columbianism


Council Awards Dinner for 2017/2018 Columbian Year

A nice group of Council officers, members, spouses and families gathered on May 23, 2018 for a delicious dinner and an evening of recognition for some of our most involved Brother Knights and our supporting organizations: Ladies of Columbus, Boy Scouts and American Heritage Girls.

It was a wonderful evening of comraderie and well deserved recognition for a large group of individuals who devote themselves to the success of our Council.

The Knight of the Year honor was awarded to Brother Alex Padilla (left photo).

The Family of the Year award was presented to Brother Richard Wagner and Family (right photo).

Congratulations and thanks to each of these Brother Knights for their consistent and generous support of Council 3744, its events and members!
