On Sunday, June 12th, 2022, the Rock Island Knights of Columbus will present its 43rd Annual Civic Awards Night. Each year, the Knights recognize a City of Rock Island Police Officer and Firefighter, who are chosen by their peers, as honorees for outstanding service. This year, the Knights will honor Officer Tyler Evans as the 2022 Police Officer of the Year, and Lieutenant Andrew Pratt as the 2022 Firefighter of the Year.
The City of Rock Island is proud of the excellent customer service provided by its public safety professionals day in and day out. Having Officer Evans and Lieutenant Pratt honored by a community group reinforces this level of commitment to service, and the City is extremely proud of both of these honorees.
The Civic Awards Night will be held at the Holiday Inn Downtown Rock Island located at 226 17th Street. The event will begin with a social hour at 5:00 p.m., followed by a dinner banquet at 6:00 p.m. with the award presentations taking place once dinner has concluded. A special program will be presented by local elementary students, and entertainment will also be provided.
The cost for this event is $20.00 for adults, and $5.00 for children ten and under, payable at the door.
