inactive about 1927. However in the early 1950's the council reactivated. It presently sponsors many
youth activities such as the Easter egg hunt, coats for kids and free throw contest. Pancake breakfasts,
fish frys during Lent, as well as memorial masses for all deceased members families are just a few of the
programs. It is a great source of support for many parish and community activities.
