A BIT ABOUT US
In 1917, in Birmingham, Alabama a group of business men began meeting weekly at lunch to discuss the ways they might contribute to the improvement of the community. Like all major cities, Birmingham had problems. These men found some of the answers and decided to join together as a winning team and on March 17, 1917, the first Civitan Club was established.
The Cook County Civitan Club was chartered on June 1, 2004, with 51 members.
