Thanks to the efforts of Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven and some of his parishioners, the Connecticut state legislature on March 29, 1882, officially chartered the Knights of Columbus as a fraternal benefit society. The Order is still true to its founding principles of charity, unity and fraternity.
The Knights was formed to render financial aid to members and their families. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works.
The history of the Order shows how the foresight of Father Michael J. McGivney, whose cause for sainthood is being investigated by the Vatican, brought about what has become the world's foremost Catholic fraternal benefit society. The Order has helped families obtain economic security and stability through its life insurance, annuity and long-term care programs, and has contributed time and energy worldwide to service in communities.
The Knights of Columbus has grown from several members in one council to more than 13,000 councils and 1.7 million members throughout the United States, Canada, the Philippines, Mexico, Poland, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Panama, the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, Cuba, Guatemala, Guam and Saipan.

Year Founded: 1983 The Peconic Land Trust was established in 1983 to conserve Long Island's working farms and natural lands. Since its inception the nonprofit Trust has worked with landowners, communities, municipalities, partner organizations, and donors to protect over 10,000 acres of land on Long Island. A common misconception is that the Trust receives monies raised through the 2% real estate transfer tax. That is incorrect. The Trust's funding comes primarily through donations from the public. The Trust's professional staff conducts research and planning to identify and implement alternatives to outright development. While working to conserve the productive farms, watersheds, woodlands, and beachfront of Long Island, the Trust is also protecting the unique rural heritage and natural resources of the region. Throughout the year, the Trust hosts a wide variety of educational and recreational activities that connect people with the natural environment, while introducing the general public to its work throughout the East End of Long Island. The Trust has Stewardship centers in Cutchogue, Bridgehampton and Amagansett and its Main Office is in Southampton.

Year Founded: 2012 In 1980, my father began J M Engraving, a small mom and pop trophy and plaque business located in Eastern Suffolk County. As this business grew, my dad often enlisted the help of my mom and the four Sumwalt boys to assemble trophies, package the final product, and prepare the recognition awards for delivery.
Growing up, we saw that dad had developed a reputation for offering high quality products at competitive prices. He also taught us that customer satisfaction was a top priority. In 2012, dad decided that it was time to retire and I decided to continue the family trade as East End Trophy & Awards. East End Trophy & Awards is building on those core principles that dad espoused. Our pledge to you is to offer swift and professional service for all of your recognition and award needs. Whether it be one trophy or many, each piece will get personal attention to ensure that you are completely satisfied.
