First Place International Award:
To Be a Patriot Award Support “Heartbeat Serving Wounded Warriors”
Our Lady of the Americas Assembly 3123
Our Lady of the Americas Assembly partnered with the non-Profit group “Heartbeat Serving Wounded Warriors” to conduct several programs in support of wounded warriors throughout the 2014-2015 fraternal year. The services the Knights provided were an ongoing and meaningful presence in the lives of the veterans. Knights assisted with activities ranging from Christmas events (Giving Tree, production of stockings and a Christmas party) to making a float for the Fourth of July Parade, to conducting fundraisers and presenting Patriotic Service awards.
“To Be a Patriot” Award was established in 1985 and annually recognizes the three best patriotic programs conducted by Fourth Degree Assemblies each fraternal year. Entries are judged at the district, providence and international level.
