Benchmarks: The First 100

As a benchmark to this, our new website, below are the first (and oldest) one hundred Councils of the Knights of Columbus.  Most, if not all, are located in towns across Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts.

Stella Maris 10 (Branford) is one of only 15 Councils who have websites linked from Supreme’s “Find a Council” (searching by council number).  Any others we added (e.g. Councils 32, 47, 62, and 70) were found independently online as we searched for social media links…

Enjoy following the links to the other “top 100” websites!   See what other Councils our “age” are doing!
