The Exchange Club of Carlisle was formed in 1949 by residents whose wish was to enjoy each other's fellowship and exchange ideas and information about how to improve our community. We were chartered by the National Exchange Club, which, since 1911, is the longest-standing, solely-American service organization, currently consisting of clubs located throughout the United States and Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
We adhere to the principles of the National Exchange Club, and our key programs of service reflect those of the National Exchange Club and include the areas of Americanism, Youth Programs, Community Service, and Prevention of Child Abuse.
Club membership is a cross section of our community and includes individuals from many disciplines - physicians, retailers, retirees, etc. Our club is administered by our Officers and a Board of Directors, all of whom function within the bylaws and rules of the National Exchange Club. We have several committees whose purposes are to direct projects and activities within the club. Financial support of all projects we undertake comes from fundraisers, and all projects are performed by club members so that individual interests and talents can be fully utilized.
Club meetings are held the second and fourth Tuesday of each month. We meet Davis Dining Room (adjacent to the swimming pool) at Cumberland Crossings (1 Longsdorf Way, Carlisle, PA) at 6:00 p.m. for social time; we usually have a speaker on one of a variety of topics at 6:30, dinner at 7:00, followed by a brief business meeting.
