As you leave to come to The Palmetto Club…. Do Not Forget the charities we support year round: Halifax Urban Ministries; Halifax Humane Society; and The Palmetto House (aka Mid-Florida Housing Partnership). Contributions to all these worthwhile organizations slow in the summer months … let’s do our share to “Catch Up”. For HUM, we collect food for human consumption (canned or packaged); for Halifax Humane, we collect animal food and linens (old towels, sheets, etc.) and for The Palmetto House, we collect “gently used” clothing, shoes, jewelry, or anything else you think would be helpful to individuals trying to get back on their feet and back into the working arena. Whatever you donate is greatly appreciated.
The motto of the Palmetto Club established in 1894 and still applies today is 'Why stay we on earth unless to grow'. While members work to improve the community having raised over $700,000 since 1949 for the American Cancer Society, awarding scholarships to area high schools for 59 years, supporting the Halifax Humane Society, Halifax Urban Ministries and area nursing homes to name a few of our endeavors. Please consider joining us for long lasting friendships and the gratifying feeling of helping the inhabitants of Volusia/Flagler County.
We are in our 122nd year of providing service to Daytona Beach and Volusia County.
While members are working for the betterment of the community, they are also enjoying fellowship, having fun and getting to know some of the finest women and men in the area.
In years gone by this was only a women's club but times have changed. Men are now an intricate part of this organization.
"Why stay we on earth unless to grow"
