The Taylorsville Club, which is a part of the National Exchange Club, exists primarily to give back to Taylorsville. The Mission Statement is “Exchange, America’s Premier Service Club, working to make our communities better places to live.”
There are three core values—Family, Community, Country—we are targeting the community and in particular, Community Service, which is one of the service programs. The other three service programs encompass Americanism (they have installed several Freedom Shrines in public schools, the senior center, and city hall since it was first organized in November, 1996), Youth Recognition (they have awarded many scholarships to Taylorsville High School seniors over the years), and the national project: Prevention of Child Abuse. They partner with the Family Support Center whose administrative offices are in the city.
In the last quarter of 2014, the Taylorsville Club has been busy giving back by doing the following: Meet the candidates October 9 and the Blood Drive on October 25. A goal was set to attract 14 donors; we received twenty-one! This donated blood will benefit 63 people. A few of our other projects have been Food Bank donations collected on November 12 and our “Youth of the Semester” honored on November 19 from Taylorsville High School, Kearns High School and Cyprus High School.
December will be an exciting month, as we assist with the copper kettles of the Salvation Army in front of the Taylorsville Harmon’s grocery store. We will be ringing bells all day Saturday, December 20. If you wish to assist on that day, or find out more about this service club, contact [email protected]
Regular club meetings are the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays, 7:30-8:30 AM in the City Council Chambers of Taylorsville City Hall. Free light breakfast. Visitors welcome.
