One of the 100 oldest continuously operating Civitan Clubs in the world! We're proud of our nearly 100 years of service to the Salisbury community!
Civitan International is an organization of volunteer service clubs around the world, dedicated to helping people in their own communities. Civitans help wherever the need arises – from collecting food for a homeless shelter, to volunteering at a local retirement home, to building a playground for children with disabilities. Civitans have been helping people since the organization’s founding in 1917 by a group of Birmingham, Alabama businessmen determined to make a difference in their community. Our local Salisbury Club was founded just five years later in 1922, making it the 80th local club founded and now, one of the oldest continually operating Civitan clubs in existence.
