Our Holiday Store featuring our new shirt design is open now thru November 20th!

Go to https://ikc2022.itemorder.com/ to pick up some great gifts like shirts, hoodies, beanie hats and even a tote and help raise money for the IKC. We have this handy flyer (click here to view/print flyer) you can print and lay out with your favorites circled as a hint to your family for your personal must-haves. The store is open until November 20 at 11:59 EST and Organic Robot Designs will process the orders that have accumulated. Organic Robot Designs is a caver-owned, local Indiana business we are happy to support and excited about this fundraiser. In the shopping cart you can choose to pick up your items at the IKC meeting December 11th at the Ellettsville Library, the CIG meeting December 7th at the Indianapolis War Memorial Building, Organic Robot Designs store in Greenfield, IN, or pay for shipping and have it shipped to your door. Organic Robot Designs is donating 25% of each sale (minus tax and shipping) to the IKC so this is a great way to help out the IKC and have fun doing it. Thank you for your support and have fun shopping!

Covid-19 Update: IKC preserves are currently open.
