New Program to Feed Hungry Children

Part of a national initiative, Blessings in a Backpack provides food for elementary children who may otherwise have little or no food to eat on the weekends during the school year; better test scores, improved skills, positive behavior, improved health and increased attendance have all been attributed to the success of this program. 

Performing Arts Education and Venue

Music in the Park Series brings diverse musical programs to our community while productions like A Midsummer Night's Dream performed by Notre Dame University's Young Company brings Shakespeare to life in a lighthearted, fun way. 

Unique Youth Recreational Activity

Walkerton youth skeet shooting team prepared for competition for State and National Events, with three ultimately earning gold medals at Junior Olympics Championships. 

Cultural Enrichment

Community choir members and professional soloists from Chicago Lyric Opera, accompanied by South Bend Symphony performed the music of Handel's Messiah at Ancilla Domini Chapel.
