Joe Pollpeter, State Family Program Director
WELCOME to our Family Programs Page.
I was excited to be asked to be the Family Director for this Fraternal Year. As the State Family Director, I have the great opportunity to choose the Knight of the Month and the Family of the Month.
I would encourage every council to submit their Family and Knight of the Month entries. Every Council has Knights and Families that are always involved in their councils or parishes. Entering their names is another way you can recognize them for all their hard work and dedication.
Food for Families is another important program that councils can participate in. This program calls for councils to collect 1,000 pounds of food and donate it to a local parish food pantry or food bank. Councils can also donate 100 hours of service at a food bank or pantries to qualify.
Councils that meet these requirements are credited with all of the Family Activities for the year for the Columbian Award.
I hope to see your entries for Knight of the Month and Family of the Month. Let’s give these Knights the recognition they deserve.
Go Make a Difference,
State Family Director
