Civic Award Assemblies announced

I am pleased to announce that four Assemblies were recipients of the prestigious Civic Award. These assemblies were deemed outstanding in their implementation of an agenda of patriotic programming. This award is a tribute to the spirit of patriotism and national pride exemplified by the assembly’s program of activities. Those assemblies winning the award should display it with justifiable pride.

In order to qualify for the Civic Award, the assembly must conduct and report at least four varied patriotic programs held within the fraternal year. Please note that assembly programs must be patriotic in nature.

The recipients of the Civic Award for the 2021-2022 fraternal year are:

Hennessy Assembly 264, Waterloo

Bishop Cosgrove Assembly 267, Iowa City

James G. Jordan Assembly 3031, West Des Moines

Dr. C. F. Barrett Assembly 3413, Davenport

These Assemblies will receive their award in the coming months. For more information about the award and to obtain the application for this year, please visit
