Perimeter Civitan Club

Perimeter Civitan Club Perimeter Civitan Club is dedicated to improving the Birmingham community through service projects and fundraisers and to having fun while we do it!

Founded in 1917 by a group of Birmingham businessmen intent on improving their community, Civitan International is now an association of volunteer service clubs with more than 40,000 members across North America, Europe, and Asia. The centerpiece of Civitan's focus is the University of Alabama (Birmingham) Civitan International Research Center, founded in 1991 and dedicated to improving lives through the research and treatment of developmental disabilities and other cognitive disorders. Perimeter Civitan supports this initiative and other community needs through a variety of hands-on service projects and fundraisers. As of Feb. 2015, our meetings are the last Tuesday of every month. Our social time starts at 6p and our meetings begin at 6:30p. Our meeting location is the Logan's Roadhouse on Hwy 280. Come join us!!!

Mission: The worldwide mission of Civitan International is to build good citizenship by providing a volunteer organization of clubs dedicated to serving individual and community needs with an emphasis on helping people with developmental disabilities.

Good Morning Perimeter Civitan members and followers!!! Despite the lack of updates, Perimeter Civitan is still active and doing good works in order to build upon better citizenship! Please stay tuned for updates and events for the upcoming year.

With that being said, let's get out there and get busy in our community. What better way to start than with a wheelchair ramp project!!! The address for this ramp is:
3316 39th Street North, Birmingham, AL 35217

Start time is 7:30a, but get there and lend a hand when you can. Remember, you do not have to be a professional at building in order to help. Typically ramps like this will only last a few hours with help from YOU!!! These ramps are the backbone of who we are as a club and lending our help to those who are in need.

So do please join us this slightly chilly weekend and let's do some good works together!!!

Give back at every opportunity in order to make the upcoming holiday season a joy for all!

Thank you to everyone who purchased their Vidalia Onions in support of our fundraiser! We sold 900 lbs of onions!!! Delivery to us will be May 14th, so expect to receive your order on the 15th - 17th!

04/28/2015

Hurry, hurry! Time is running out for you to purchase your Vidalia onions straight from Vidalia, Ga. Heck, we will even delivery them to you! Remember, every time you support a Civitan fundraiser, your funds are going directly back into the community through service projects, donations to the Civitan International Research Center (located in Birmingham), and through our most successful project of wheelchair ramp builds for those in need.

So, buy yours today before the April 30th deadline. Onions will be available by the second week in May! $10 for 10 lbs and $6 for 5 lbs. It's almost grilling season too!!!

I mean you could go to the store and support their profits OR you could buy from a local Civitan group and support the community...

Meeting - Oct. 28 @ 6:30p.

I would love to see everyone come out to our first meeting of the New Civitan Year!!!

10/01/2014

Being the first day of the new Civitan year, I want to just let everyone know that this can be the start of something great! Another chance to go out in the world and make a difference. A lot of things are bigger than just us; however, there is always something that can be done for the better - and every idea, thought, prayer, insight, and effort helps!!! So with that being said, let's start this new year of Civitan off right. Go out of your way today to do something nice/helpful/thoughtful for a friend, family member, and/or especially a stranger in need. It may change their whole outlook on the world. Even if you don't get to share it in Civitan - do it just because we are to be good citizens to our neighbors. We aren't perfect. We aren't Superman or Batman. We aren't invincible. We can't control everything. We aren't super rich. HOWEVER! We are CAPABLE of making a difference and that is what I challenge everyone to do today. This isn't a requirement, contest, or one upping competition, this is just to do some good. So give that some thought. I look forward to serving another great year with everyone. I might not say it or show it enough, but I am thankful for every bit of effort that you guys do for Civitan, Perimeter, and the community.

Yours in Civitan,

Patrick J. King, President

Good Morning Perimeter,

I hope everyone enjoyed some football on Saturday! The Tide Rolled as expected, UAB put up a good fight, and some other teams won too :)

This is just a reminder that we will have a meeting tomorrow at our normal time and location and we do have a speaker.

Our speaker will be local author, Marie Nicole Harper, promoting her upcoming book "For Best and Worst." Marie will talk about not only the book, but what it took to write the book along with the inspiration(s) that helped fuel the words on each page. Please do make it out to listen!!!

We will also be covering some End of Year Banquet questions, etc. The Banquet is scheduled to be on Friday, September, 26.

I hope everyone has a good Monday. I'm already in the need for more coffee!
