On July 1, 1988, the Chapter Officers shed their traditional gold jackets and black trousers for dark blue jackets and gray trousers.

The Chapter still conducts its annual collection for charitable causes such as the children at St. Vincent’s Child Care Center, Villa Maria and the Gallagher Center, and conducts a Christmas Party for them; annual Cross Catholic Outreach food packing event;  and other events.  The time-honored traditions of a members’ crab/shrimp feast, Memorial Mass, adult Christmas Party, Honored Guests’ Night and Ladies’ Night have all gone well.

The Chapter provides for its 58 member councils the opportunity to meet and serves as a forum for the exchange of information between Chapter Officers, Past Grand Knights, current Grand Knights and with the State Officers, State Directors and State Chairmen each month to keep abreast of the many events taking place in the Maryland Jurisdiction.  Any Brother Knight or Lovely Lady can attend the meetings.

Ever since that Wintry Saturday afternoon of January 22, 1910, when the six Grand Knights of the councils in Baltimore met and formed the Chapter of the Grand Knights of Baltimore, the original purpose has been faithfully carried out.  That purpose was and still remains to further the interests of all of its member councils and to work for the common good of the Order.  That total good that the Chapter has accomplished could never be recorded in the limited space that condenses its history in the past 10 years.

The greater story remains indelibly marked on the minds and hearts of all of those thousands of orphans, abused children and God’s special children who have been the beneficiaries of the Chapter’s charity.
