We support St. Bartholomew Church and School with a number of their events including the fall festival and Parent Teacher Organization auction. We have been the charter organization for Cub Scout Pack 555, Boy Scout Troop 555 and Venturing Crew 555. We support Gibault, a home for children founded by the Indiana Knights of Columbus that provides comprehensive programming to meet educational, emotional, social, recreational and spiritual needs.
