My Civitan Why

PEOPLE- CIVITANS- Joining Civitans over 15 years ago was joining for Fellowship and Fun!!! Triangle Luncheon Civitan was a fun, hard working , creative , giving club. Fund Raising Projects, Fellowship Gatherings ,Service to Others Sharing, Giving Back are only a few reasons for being a Civitan As the song says,- “People who need People are the Luckiest People in the World”. The Civitan focus is to help people with special needs.

Everyone has special needs. As we strive to help others, we are really helping ourselves.

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”

My Civitan Why

When I joined Civitans in 2005 a common theme I heard at the club, area and district level was the collective impact from the efforts of each club and each member in those clubs on the community they served. The Civitan International why of global impact through the local clubs, focus on creating change for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and the power of research through the Civitan Research Center to affect change for the one in six people worldwide with those issues resonated with me. The community work of each of our district clubs some of which are approaching 100 years of service and our collective efforts to support the three district projects, Boys and Girls Homes of NC, the Duke Child Development Center and Special Olympics showcases our district impact. That is what keeps me in Civitan.

My Civitan Why

When I moved to NC in 1999 from WV, I had never heard of Civitan. Within three months, I was a member of the Altamahaw-Ossipee Club, sponsored by Bill and Polly Gilliam.

Since then, I have many WHYs that I joined. The main one is getting to learn about the Civitan International Research Center. The things they are doing to help those individuals less fortunate than us are amazing. I am especially grateful for studies being done for children and young people who have numerous disabilities. I am Blessed that my five grandsons are healthy. Knowing there is a project that we as Civitans sponsor, makes me thankful for those scientists who strive every day to develop drugs, etc., to help these individuals.
