Welcome to our website. We hope you find it useful.
We are a non-profit organization. We provide scholarships and assistance to local organizations, such as St. MAM. We also take part in community service events.
We meet twice a month, usually at The St. Matthews Community Center, 310 Ten Pin Lane. We have entertaining and informative programs.
If you are interested in attending one of our programs, or in joining our club, please feel free to contact us. We would love to meet you. We are a friendly group and welcome new members. We have a lot of fun; actually we get a little silly sometimes, but we seriously care about each other.
If you want to have fun and make a difference in the community, join us!
