Our club was organized in 1953, Federated in 1953 and incorporated in 1960. Our mission is to promote fellowship and philanthropic work and develop an interest in the civic and general welfare of the community. We are dedicated to the community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer services.
This past year has been challenging due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the "safer-at-home" order. Now that the "safer-at-home" order has been lifted, we will begin meeting on a monthly basis again in September. Check the "Events" section of the Webpage to find more information about our meetings as well as our upcoming events.
