The SCCF’s 20th Anniversary Series
During the spring and summer months, both children and adults love to enjoy the beautiful parks in Starke County, including the Field of Dreams in Kwon Lake, the Yataghan Park and Skate Park in Knox, the San Pierre Park, and the North Judson Town Park. The flowers bloom and the grass is green at Nor wayne Field and alongside the Erie Trail. During the autumn and winter months, these areas are painted hues of gold, crimson red, and burnt orange, or blanketed in snow.
The SCCF supports parks in all our communities around the county. Read more about these many beautiful projects.

Women’s Giving Circles are not unique to Fulton County. The Fulton County Community Foundation (FCCF) was aware of the widespread initiative. When the idea was brought up in a FCCF meeting, Judy Climie and Barb Lutterbein decided it was time to see if there were other women in the community interested in starting a Women’s Giving Circle. The two women began to contact individuals who they believed might want to be a part of the cause.
