December 30, 2000 - In commemoration of the martyrdom of our national hero Dr. Jose Rizal, the chapters in the Chicago area have joined together in several activities.

The monument project was spearheaded by the Order of the Knights of Rizal in the Chicago Area, The Philippine Centennial Movement, Philippine American Cultural Foundation, in cooperation with the Philippine Consulate General of Chicago. In spite of the severe snow condition in the area, floral offering was held at the monument by a few knights and a lady braved the thick snow in order to proceed with the offering.

On the evening of the 30th. of December, a joint celebration of the martyrdom of Dr. Jose Rizal was held at the Rizal Center, W. Irving Park Road, Chicago. This year's celebration was hosted by the KOR, Chicago Chapter. An indoor floral offering was held at the Dr. Jose Rizal bust at the center.
