Council 19 is the local chapter of the national organization of the Knights of Lithuania. The K of L is an organization of Catholic Lithuanian-Americans with over 2,000 members nationwide. The Knights endeavor to instill in their members an attachment to Lithuania, the land of their ancestors, and a knowledge, appreciation and love of the Lithuanian language, customs and culture. The local council is comprised of approximately 10 members. The Knights participate in Citizens’ Society sponsored events and have sponsored a few of their own events including St. Casimir Day commemorations in cooperation with the Sisters of St. Francis. The Knights hold an annual picnic at the Lithuanian Country Club
