Worthy Brother Waldner,




Council 16179 has earned the 2019-2020 Star Council Award, recognizing excellence in program activity, membership growth (200.00%% of quota), insurance promotion, fraternal reporting and Safe Environment compliance.


During this challenging year, your council adapted and continued to stand in the breach; serving your brothers, families, parishes and communities. The Supreme Council is pleased to recognize these achievements and acknowledge the hard work of you and your brother knights.


Your council’s award plaque will be shipped to your District Deputy for presentation. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, production and delivery of awards is currently estimated at 10-12 weeks. Additionally, to help celebrate this accomplishment and promote your council, attached please find a bulletin announcement and press release for your use. These are great tools that will highlight your good works in the community.


There is still much to be done and we need your council to lead the way. Keep the momentum going and start planning now for another successful fraternal year! The new 2020-2021 Star Council requirements, which can be found at KofC.Org/Star, will help guide your council to excellence in the year to come.


Thank you and Vivat Jesus!
