On November 28th 1897, DeGoesbriand Council #279 was chartered by the then Supreme Knight James E. Hayes, taking its name from the first bishop of Vermont, Louis DeGoesbriand. The Council was organized with the fifty-eight charter members with Michael D. McMahon as the first Grand Knight. TheĀ  DeGoesbriand Council has had a steady growth since its inception, reaching its membership peak in the 1950's. You can view a complete list of our Grand Knights on this website.
