The Our Lady of Knock Division #1, Indianapolis submitted the Division Scrapbooks to the Indiana Historical Society to be used for research and information concerning our works and activities. Access to the information may be had by visiting the Library at the IHS.  The Division is in the process of revising the Membership Directory to be distributed to all members.

Paula Lee chaired the Spring Tea at Caring Place, the day adult facility in Indianapolis.  This event brings joy to all who participate. OLK chose Birthline as the charity for 2015-2016. Birthline provides materials and help to mothers in need during and following the mother’s pregnancy.  Members contributed baby and toddler needs at the shower for Birthline at the May meeting.

The June Garage Sale will be the Fund Raiser. Members contribute household goods to the sale, which has been very helpful in supporting our charity work.  Joyce McMullen has chaired this event for several years.

Our Lady of Knock Division #1 Participated in the Green Tie Gala at the Arts Garden in Indianapolis.  The Indy Irish Fest, the AOH and the other Irish groups are hoping to raise money for an Irish cultural center in the near future.

A group of OLK members participated in a trip to the Art Institute of Chicago to view the Ireland Exhibit. They recommend to trip to all.
