Welcome to Robert W. Powell Council 3488!
"Together we aspire, together we achieve"
Welcome back to Powell Council's website! We've been serving Powell Council since November 4, 1999, and like anything that has stood the test of time, a facelift was in order. We're going to an "old" look as we're moving into our new home: St. Martha's Bethany Hall!
We've always been big on tradition here at Powell Council, and if you're an old-time Powell Council member, take a close look at the "new" logo: the outline is an exaggerated outline of our old building! In fact, note the logo itself: the inside is a close facsimile of Powell Council's original banner! Compare it to the logo on the "Council history page."
And after that, why not check out the entire site? We'll update whenever there's news of our favorite council. More Council news can be found by click on "Council News" on the left. And on your right, you can download the latest Powellite!
We also have a new cyber-home: Knightsite.com! Plus if you plug in the domain name, www.koc3488.org, that will get you here, too!
