At its May 4 session at Moscow’s Danilov Monastery, the Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church resolved to establish a new feast glorifying the holy fathers of the 1917-1918 Local Russian Church Council, to be celebrated on November 5/18, the day of the election of St. Tikhon to the Muscovite patriarchal throne, reports the press service of the Moscow Patriarchate.

I'm not sure if this information was posted here before, but this is the first I'm hearing about it and I thought it was interesting. 
I think you can say ~ In the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit and post with charitable and prayerful intentions.

Are there any other such feasts for councils, local or otherwise, that aren't labelled "Ecumenical?"

The Coptic Church IIRC commemorates the Council of Antioch in the third century against Paul of Samosata.
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

A Council of martyrs and confessors.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

I guess the Triumph of Orthodoxy could be considered celebrating a council that isn't labeled ecumenical.
