Knights of Columbus chapter awarded group's highest honor

June 01, 1998

The Knights of Columbus Council 11552 of Annapolis has been named a Star Council, the international organization's highest award. The members received the award from Knights' State Deputy John Albright at a ceremony last week.

The award recognizes excellence in recruiting and retaining members, promotion of the fraternal insurance program and sponsorship of service activities.

Virgil C. Dechant, international president of the organization, said the "dedication to the principles and aims of the Order" demonstrated by the officers and members of the Annapolis council "is exemplified by the high standards of excellence you have achieved."

Dick Allison, head of the local group, said he and the members are "extremely proud of this accomplishment."
