Springville Community Club
Springville Community Club’s motto is Friendship and Service.
One of the major purposes of the Springville Community Club is to raise money to supply financial aid to Springville residents and organizations.
All money raised by the Club through its various activities are donated back to the community.

Yearly Community Club sponsored events:
February: White Elephant Sale month. This is an opportunity for the members and their guests to bring items they no longer need but someone else would treasure. A silent auction during the meeting allows attendees to bid on the items, the highest bidder is the lucky winner.
March: Cookie Contest. The cookie contest began as a bet between two members as to who made the best chocolate chip cookie. The result, an annual cookie contest where members bake cookies to match the theme of the year and compete for prizes based on the cookie eating judges. The extra cookies become the dessert of the day. Cookbooks of all of the entry’s recipes are available. A fun day for all.
Bunco Party: Each year the Club holds a bunco party for the community. For several hours in the evening, guests compete for outstanding prizes and each guest receives a gift from the general drawing. It has become an event much anticipated by those who love to “bunco.”
April: Plant Sale. Just in time for spring planting, the Club holds its annual plant sale. Local businesses and members donate plants and/or gardening items to be part of the silent auction. Guests can walk away with everything from a tiny cactus plant to a wheelbarrow.
June: Book Tea. This is an annual event for book lovers and even those who aren’t readers. Hostesses decorate their tables with elaborate fair to match the theme of their books whose synopses they share. It is an elegant event with a three course meal and a great deal of pleasure.
Ice Cream Social: This is the annual introduction to summer with free ice cream sundaes in the evening for anyone who would like to come and share good company with their neighbors. It is the Club’s way of saying thank you to everyone who has supported it over the year.
November: Empty Bowl Project. This is a new event for the Club. There are so many community members who benefit from the local church’s food pantries that the Club is initiating a homeless shelter meal of soup, bread and drink to raise money for those churches. Desserts can be purchased to eat with the meal or to take home. The “meal” is a $10 donation, or $15 for all you can eat. Please join us on the first Sunday of November.
December: Angel Tree. The Club has been sponsoring the Angel tree for many years now. Beginning the day after Thanksgiving, a Christmas tree in the Patton House contains little tags with the age and gender of needy children in Springville. Generous community members choose a tag, buy a gift, wrap it and return it to the Patton House to be delivered to the children by the Lighthouse Chapel just before Christmas. It is the project that makes the holidays very special. You are welcomed to become a secret Santa for some young child.
