In a ceremony held at the Knights of Columbus Museum in New Haven, CT on Saturday, November 04, 2017, Candlewood Lake Council No. 11913 was awarded “Double Star Council Award” status, as well as a special “Contest of Champions Award” for having one of the highest net-gains in membership for the 2016-2017 Fraternal Year.
A big “THANK YOU!” to all members of Candlewood Lake Council No. 11913 for helping to make this happen!
This Double Star Council Award stands as a tribute to our former Grand Knight, Vincent “Vince” Lupo, Jr. who passed away in September. Vince may not have been here to accept the award, but prior to his passing he was informed that we had earned Double Star – a fact which made him happy and moved him quite deeply. We’re sure he’s looking down from above with a smile on his face, saying “Congratulations, gentlemen!”
