“Men, Women and Families – Together We Serve!” We received our Charter in December of 2009, and are a “new” club in our community.

Our members are a wonderful mix of men and women, youth and ‘experienced’, singles, and families. We share a core belief – that we will have fun together helping our community become its best. We help where help is needed and we are able. In short,We Serve.
