The Supreme Knights of Columbus Council has announced that St. Patrick Council 10567 has earned the Columbian Award for the 2004 - 2005 fraternal year.

The Supreme Council said, "The award is given to those Councils who provided outstanding Service Programs for the 2004 - 2005 fraternal year. The Columbian Award is a tangible testimonial of the efficiency, industry and excellent activity programs of Council 10567."

Council 10567 Grand Knight Louis J. Muro said, "As I have said many times, our Council does not focus its attention on trying to win awards. But it is nice to receive this recognition from the Supreme Council. It is a tribute to a great group of men who fully understand the true meaning and rewards of personal service."
