The Exchange Club of Quincy
Our Mission: Exchange, inspiring communities to become better places to live.
Open "Exchange" of Ideas
The National Exchange Club – a service organization with more than 700 clubs and 21,000 members throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. Founded in 1911 in Detroit by business leaders who wanted to “exchange” ideas on making their community better, the Exchange Club moved its headquarters to Toledo in 1917. Its core values – Family, Community and Country are held by each Exchange member with pride and commitment. For over a hundred years, Exchange Club volunteer efforts have supported the needs of the country and of local communities, making it the country’s oldest American service organization operating exclusively in this country.
The Quincy Exchange Club was founded originally in 1926, but disbanded during World War II. You can read more about the club history here.
A 30 YEAR TRADITION
Gus Macker 3 on 3 Basketball
The Gus Macker event in Quincy served as a benchmark in our community for 30 years for basketball fun and competition that brought teams from around the nation. Teams found many opportunities to form life-long friendships and chances to practice their skills. This event will forever be remembered as The Quincy Exchange Club's Memorial Day action-packed 3-on-3 basketball extravaganza.
The Macker was a tremendously successful fundraiser for our club and we wanted to shout about it with an extended THANK YOU to all the sponsors of the event throughout the years. Without your support, we could not have accomplished such a monumental feat every year for 30 YEARS!
Also thank you to our dedicated membership and the sacrifices and dedication you gave for this effort, you served your community well!
