About Emporia Sertoma

Sertoma Club of Emporia P.O. Box 593 Emporia, KS 66801-0593

Emporia Sertoma is the third oldest club in Kansas District behind Manhattan and Topeka Evening Club. Sertoma Club of Emporia was chartered on January 23, 1925, with membership open to all who wish to join.
Sertoma is a not-for-profit civic organization with community minded members in our service clubs across North America.
For more than 100 years, mankind has been served by a special family of volunteers, originally known as Co-Operators, and now as Sertomans.

Sertomans donate their time in many ways, form operating the miniature train to installing flags. Sertoma’s purpose for raising money is to return the money to the community in the form of scholarships and monetary gifts.

Some organizations that have benefited include: Special Olympics, Salvation Army, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Cancer Society, Emporia Zoo, Hospice of the Flint Hills, Lyon County Historical Society, Peter Pan Park, United Way Of the Flint Hills, American Legion, Boy Scouts/Girl Scouts, D.A.R.E., Emporians for Drug Awareness, Learning Center, Presbyterian Manor, SOS, Arthritis Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, Lyon County Crimestoppers, Northern Heights High School After Prom Party, 911 for Kids, Rescue Mission, USD 253 nurses audiometers, and the United Way.

The benefit of donating your time with Sertoma is that the money raised stays local, and you have input in how the funds are distributed.
