Join Our Club
Come to a meeting
We have lunch meetings on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month. We are currently meeting in a hybrid format – those of us who are able are meeting at PLACE at noon for lunch and those who can’t be there in person join us on zoom for our meetings at 12:30pm. We welcome guests, speakers, and potential new members at any meeting!
Volunteer with us
We volunteer around our community throughout the year. We host an annual basketball tournament for high school boys and girls, we give out over $25,000 of scholarships every year, we work with the Boys and Girls Club to help students with back-to-school shopping and we are always looking for new volunteer activities and ideas!
What we do
Our Service Projects
In December of 2021, we will be hosting our 63rd Annual Men’s Basketball Tournament. We are also excited to announce the addition of a Women’s Basketball Tournament this year!
Each year, we give away over $25,000 in scholarships to high school graduates, who are continuing their education at trade schools, community colleges, and four year universities!
As part of the Boys and Girls Club Back-to-School Shopping event, every year we sponsor students by giving them money and taking them shopping for back-to-school clothes. It is always a fun event for us and the kids!
We sponsor an Aktion Club for adults living with disabilities, two Key Clubs for high school students, and Bringing Up Grades and Terrific Kids programs at Lincoln Elementary. We are always looking for new ways to volunteer and help our community!
