Code 3 Sertoma will serve in helping to keep our local children safe by supporting public and safety education and community awareness programs, as well as, the emergency personnel that serve our communities.
Sertoma is an international civic organization established in Kansas City, Mo, on April 11, 1912. The name Sertoma is an acronym of the words SERvice TO Mankind. Code 3 was chartered on October 14, 2011 with 26 members.
The club meets each Monday at 5:30 at the Greene County Public Safety Center located at 330 W Scott (across from the Greene County Courthouse). Meetings last one hour. We have no compulsory attendance requirements, but socializing with other members and guests at these meetings are a pleasure you don’t want to miss!
Our membership will participate in carrying out fundraising activities by investing their time for the betterment of our community. On average, our members invest 5 to 10 hours per month in club fundraising activities. proceeds from our fundraisers will stay in our community and benefit our community.
Currently our major fundraiser is a DARE to Sweat run, with the proceeds being given to the Greene County Sheriff’s Office DARE program. In 2014 this event raised a little over $6,000 and this year’s event is slated for May of 2015. See our FB page ‘Dare to be Safe & Sober 5K/10K Run/Walk’.
