Exchange, America's Service Club, is a group of men and women working together to make our communities better places to live, through programs in Americanism, Community Service, Youth Activities, and its National Project, the Prevention of Child Abuse.
HISTORY of THE NATIONAL EXCHANGE CLUB
The first local Exchange Club was formed in Detroit, Michigan in 1911. Charles A. Berkey is the man who is credited with the founding of this great organization. The second was the Exchange Club of Toledo, Ohio, formed in 1913.
Subsequently, two others were organized in Grand Rapids, Michigan and Cleveland, Ohio. These four clubs were the first to be chartered by The National Exchange Club after it was organized as a nonprofit, educational organization in 1917.
Since then hundreds of clubs have been chartered in the United States and Puerto Rico. The National Exchange Club headquarters is located in Toledo, Ohio. Its chief objective is to help Exchange Clubs realize their full potential of community service.
HISTORY of THE EXCHANGE CLUB OF WINCHESTER
The Exchange Club of Winchester was chartered in 1947, with the first chapter President being Joseph A. Massie, Jr. Since then, we have been honoring and awarding many recipients, from students to police officers & firefighters. The Exchange Club of Winchester has a history of thinking of unique and very successful ways to raise funds, as evidenced by popular events such as the Chili Challenge, Ken Thomas Golf Classic, Bowl-A-Thon, and the Texas Hold'em Tournament. These funds go to help many local charities, with the biggest benefactor being the prevention of child abuse via The Child-Parent Center.
