The second council was formed the next day with the fromation of Terra Nova Council 1452 in St. John's. It would be nine years until the next council was formed at Bell Island​​on December 8,1918.With the formation of Conception Council 1930, there were enough councils for the formation of a State Council. On May 24,1918 the first State Convention was held on Bell Island. In November  of 2008 we celebrated the 100th anniversary of the introduction of the Knights into the province. This year we will celebrate the 100 anniversary of the State council.
