Although the Civitan Club is over 85 years old and is one of the oldest civic clubs in Dayton, it is little recognized. Its membership is small (under 20), but its contributions to the community are out of proportion to its membership. Civitan members serve on the boards of the George Foster Home, Building Bridges, United Rehabiliation Services, and other civic and fraternal groups. Each year, the Civitan Club provides landscapping assistance to the George Foster Home and takes the boys to the Dragons games. The Duck Regata, a United Rehabilitation Services event, is one of many pet projects. The Civitan Club contributes regularly to Daybreak, Salvation Army, and the Red Cross. In addition, they donate valuable time and resources to the Junior Achievement and the World of Learning School. The Club has been awarded the Southern Christian Leadership Conference Dayton Chapter’s Martin Luther King award for distinguished service to humanity.
