The Family Activities program seeks to promote programs that involve the families of members so to further promote fraternity, and family as the core of our society. Some suggestions from the Supreme Council include activities regarding memorials, social events, sportoutings, and other recreational activities. This is the most flexible of programs, as each year different events are introduced. Besides striking committees for the hosting of family events, the Family Activities Director is also responsible for identifying the “Family of The Month” and presenting the award at council general meetings.
Historically, Father Bonner Council has included the following activities as part of its Family Activities Service Program:
