This page outlines the history of our organization. Our Lady of Queenship Council #4068, known as "The West Shore Knights", is a special organization of men dedicated to the church and community. Our membership is comprised of parishoners from the parishes of Good Shepherd, Camp Hill, Our Lady of Lourdes, Enola, St. Joseph's, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, and St. Katherine Drexel, Mechanicsburg, St. Theresa's, New Cumberland, as well as many other parishes in the Harrisburg area. The Council Charter was accepted by supreme on June 28, 1955, but was not presented to the Council until April 23, 1956. 1956 also marked the founding of Our Lady of Queenship's Home Association. A home Association is a gathering Place for members and their families to join each other and enjoy friendship, and fellowship, in a safe wholseome environment. 
In 2006 the Council Home closed.  During the time the club was open the Order placed a greater emphasis on parish sponsored Councils.  Fitst  St Theresa's Council 8921 lead by the late George Morrison, PGK was formed.  Over the years parish councils have spun off from 4068, Our Lady of Queenship Council in all of the West Shore Deanery parishes, except St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. 
Our Lady  of Queenship continued to support Trinity High School and the parishes in our area.and hosted a "round table" at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Parrish. working with the Silence of Mary Home in Harrisburg, a catholic lay apostalate. and area athletic clubs like the West Shore Soccer Club, and CVYBA for youth events promoting sportsmanship. We support every religious and Community Activity we can because we love this community and want to see it grow with a strong moral fiber and civic pride. Shortly after his appointment as Pastor of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, Monsignor King, long a member of the Knights of Columbus, invited Council 4068 to serve as the Parish Councel of this Church.
