Exchange Club Weekly meeting
Aug 12 @ 12:00 pm – 1:45 pm

Exchange, America’s Premier Service Club, working to make our communities better places to live. Exchange’s Mission Statement was updated in January, after approval by the National Board of Directors. The concise phrasing more effectively communicates our mission to members, potential members and the general public.

Core Values

Each member of Exchange holds near to their heart three core values – Family, Community, and Country. Commitment to Family is interpreted not only as one’s own family needs, but also those of all American families. Strengthening families, with a focus on youth, is addressed in many ways through Exchange’s Programs of Service. Commitment to the Community where an Exchangite resides is the focal point for each club’s efforts. Exchange is unique as a service organization in that it has the flexibility to structure projects that target the specific needs of a particular geographic location, rather than being restricted to a certain cause. Commitment to Country was born in the aftermath of World War II, a time of unquenchable patriotism. Exchangites are proud to join veterans and other civic groups in promoting Americanism as the rich blessing of democracy and freedom, and in educating today’s youth to cherish its values. These three values are translated into actions every day to bring about positive results through the work of hundreds of clubs and tens of thousands of dedicated Exchange Club members every day.
