German St. Martin's Day

Adam Peter St. Martin 2Every year around November 11th, St. Martin rides into town on his white horse and instructs the children on the value of sharing.  This old German tradition is celebrated annually at the Athenaeum (German Cultural Center, downtown) and Butler students are always quick to volunteer to help St. Martin and lead the children with colorful lanterns through the Lockerby area of Indianapolis.  If you haven't experienced St. Martins Fest you are really missing something. Join Butler's German Klub for our next activity or just come and see what it is all about!
