Media Archives

We've accumulated quite a bit of ephemera since 1984, and we strive to preserve and present as much of it as possible in these galleries. If you've taken part in our events or projects and happen to have anything you wish to contribute to these archives, we would love to hear from you.

We meet from noon–1PM on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month at the Richmond Hill City Center. Visitors and prospective new members are always welcome.

Membership is a great way to get involved in making Bryan County a better place to live, stay up to date on current area events, network with others of similar interests, and develop your own leadership skills.

Help us make a difference with fundraising, too. Here's just a few things we do:

  • Annual School Calendar
  • Casino Night to Prevent Child Abuse
  • Pinwheel and CAP Pin Sales

Our operating expenses are paid by member dues, so all net proceeds from fundraising events go to support various community projects. Dues are currently $100 per quarter, one of the best bargains available among all civic and service organizations. Learn more about the benefits:
