Corporate Business Park Civitan Club #1 Commitment

Posted by valadmin on July 19, 2015 at 5:15 PM Comments comments (1)

Living in a community and being a member of a community are two very different things. As members of the Clarksville Corporate Business Park Civitan Club, we have chosen to be members of the community in which we live. A big part of this community are those who have volunteered to be members of our military and their families. Many people forget that our country’s armed forces are a 100% volunteer force. Everyone who serves has made a choice, a commitment, a sacrifice, an oath,...

  On May 16, 2015, members of the Middleton Civitan Club split their time participating in two events. Some members stood by the roadside on Highway 125 in Middleton selling Vidalia onions and some attended a fundraising event for Mr. Bud Harris at Middleton City Park.

   Even though the weather was cloudy, sometimes raining and sometimes sunny, nothing would deter a few die hard members from accomplishing their mission – to sell onions!! The club ordered 60 extr...

  We have been very active in our community and like many clubs the biggest project was of course the Vidalia Onion sale. We love this very successful event and it certainly helps with our budget. It allowed us to apply for Commodore status this year, backing up to pick up this new level of Civitan at the Helm, after achieving Admiral last year. Our goal is to get the highest level one day soon. We have a yard sale and community dinner planned for the near future and we're always looking...

Speaking of noticed,...

Now that we have exchanged contact info we started the day we parted ways. But the next part of their journey was to travel to UAB. They shared their heritage and knowled...
