Our Club is a small organization and we are always looking for new members. We are a non-profit  which redirects our fundraising efforts to assist members of our community in need. Our primary goal is to provide support to sight and hearing impaired individuals in the community. Our club sponsors a Youth Dance for 3rd., 4th., & 5th. grades students at the Pfieffer Community Center. Our goal is to provide a fun, safe enviorment to allow the children to interact with fellow students outside of the school setting. Our last dance was attended by 151 children. We also provide scholarships to our local High School for a deserving young woman and man needing financial help to attend college. We provide support to the local food back during the year and major holidays as needs arise. We provide school supplies for elementary school children each year.

If you are interested joining please contact Fran Mulherin at 609-472-6640.
