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.
