The Capital City Civitan Club celebrated the 60th anniversary of the chartering of our club on Thursday, August 17, 2017
Here are some details, along with pictures, from the celebration:
Club Members Cliff Raynor and Paul Hoch, Jr. spoke about the history of civic organizations and our club's history. This is an excerpt of the newsletter article written about their presentation, which is also posted as the minutes for this meeting on the Club Resources page.
Speakers at the event discussed some of the changes and challenges the club has faced. The flexibility of club members to try new things and adapt has been a key element to the longevity of the Club. Another key element has been the never give up attitude and a focus on core Civitan values. In accordance with our creed, a key motivation for club members has been working to make our world a better place. The club supports many activities that have been long term commitments, and in the spirit of flexibility, has adopted newer initiatives too.
While the club may be small, they have demonstrated an ability to effect change, to address community needs, to reach out in service to others, and provide inspiration. In the spirit of Civitan, they have collaborated with other Civitan clubs on larger projects. Club members eagerly look to the future since our work is not done. For a positive close to the evening, one of the guests plans to become a new member and the club hopes to have additional new members in the coming year.
