Chamber Awards Haverhill Exchange Club as Business of the Month
Haverhill, MA – The Greater Haverhill Chamber is honored to recognize the Haverhill Exchange Club for their outstanding commitment and service to our community and country.
As an all-volunteer service club, the Haverhill Exchange Club is dedicated to community service and encourages its members to seek the best in themselves. Their goal is to meet the needs of the Haverhill community whether that is sponsoring programs to prevent child abuse, educating Haverhill’s 3rd graders on crime safety, or recognizing outstanding students with the Youth of the Year scholarship.
The first Exchange Club was formed in Detroit, Michigan in 1911 and since then, hundreds of clubs have been chartered in the United States and Puerto Rico with 30,000 members promoting Americanism and building a better America. Nationwide the Exchange Club honors the American flag with programs like “Give a Kid a Flag to Wave” and “Proudly We Hail,” honoring local citizens and businesses that proudly fly our nation’s flag.
Most recently, the Haverhill Exchange Club, with support from Veterans Services Officer, Luis Santiago, the VFW and Am Vets, has honored local veterans serving in the military with the Hometown Heroes program. Banners throughout the downtown highlight those that currently serve, have served as well as our fallen heroes. In further recognition, the Haverhill Exchange Club has installed a U.S. Flag Retirement Drop Box at Driscoll Funeral Home in Bradford where residents can dispose of American flags that are torn or tattered in a dignified way.
“The Haverhill Exchange Club is a mainstay of our community,” said Chamber Membership Relations Specialist, Melissa Seavey. “The clubs’ commitment to the people that live and serve our community is a testament to their compassion and resolve. We are proud to name the Haverhill Exchange Club as our business of the month.”
