|Awards for Council 10208|
On a rainy, stormy night in Ft. Smith on Saturday April 29, a years worth of effort, hard work, and team execution paid off for Council 10208. The Council received the Church Award for the outstanding efforts in one of the order's main missions, Building the Domestic Church. Next was the Family Life Award, for the oustanding work in the area of Pro-Life; from protecting the unborn, to ministering to those living in our midst who are most in need. Then came the CPID award, for the Councils outstanding fund raising for Children with Intellectual Disabilities. Roughly $26,000 was raised by many dedicated Brother Knights. Finally, the culmantion of it all, was the Large Council of the Year Award. This prestigious award was well earned, and a tribute to the leadership and team work of this Council in all areas.
These awards of course as wonderful as they can be to receive, are only the superficial; the much deeper and more meaningul reward are those kind smiles and thank you's of all the lives that this Council touches each year. The lives made so much better by so many works of mercy, genrosity, and love.
A huge salute to Council10208 as they continue to spread Chirsts message to the this community and to the world!
