EXCHANGE, America's Premier Service Club, working to make our communities better places to live.
THE EXCHANGE CLUB OF OWATONNA HAS FOUR DIVISIONS:
AMERICANISM PROJECTS: Promoting pride in country, respect for the flag and appreciation of our freedoms are the primary purposes of Exchange's Americanism programs. The tumultuous struggles of world powers in the twentieth century have done little to guarantee a peaceful future for the majority of the world people. However, the one country in modern times that people flock to for safety, freedom and opportunity is the United States of America.
COMMUNITY SERVICE: Community service is the lifeline of Exchange. Exchange Clubs across the country spend countless hours and dollars improving their communities each year. In fact, many of the projects within the Program of Service have a common goal of serving and benefiting our communities. Exchange has been dedicated to serving its communities through various projects. Throughout the years, Exchange Clubs have been responsible for community improvements of all types such as: cleaning up highways; sponsoring cultural programs, air, art and industrial shows, state and county fairs, festivals, rodeos and athletic events. THE EXCHANGE CLUB OF OWATONNA takes pride in their community projects such as, The Firefighter of the Year Recognition, The Book of Golden Deeds Winner, and The Mayor's Prayer Breakfast.
YOUTH PROGRAMS: Secure and healthy families are the foundation of healthy and safe homes as well as strong communities. Exchange Clubs and Exchange Club Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Centers across the country help build this foundation by providing supportive services and educational programs.
