Congratulations to the George C. Shields Council # 420 on Receiving the Star Council Award for 2018-2019
On 11/11/19 at our regularly scheduled council meeting, State Deputy Paul Flanagan was kind enough and honored to personally present to GK Chris Herrick and our council the Star Council Award for all the accomplishments we achieved during Fraternal Year 2018-2019. Along with the Star Council Award Paul gave Chris three individual stars to be worn on the lapel of the three key council officers: One for Chris himself, one for DGK & Membership Director Cameron Symonds and one for Chancellor & Program Director Brian Healy who also happened to be named the "Knight of the Month" this month. Pictured below is State Deputy Paul Flanagan on the left presenting the plaque to GK Chris Herrick. Below them is a close-up snapshot of the plaque.
