Exchange club seeking items to put together its history

Thursday, August 8, 2013 by AL RECKER Special to The Press in Local News

The Northampton Exchange Club is reaching out in an effort to piece together the club's recorded written and photographic history.

Dr. Rodger Berg, past president and a member since 1979, is calling for the club to form a committee that will delve into the history of the club. He said such a project should begin before the borough-based Exchange Club celebrates its 100th birthday.

The club was chartered in 1927 and bills itself as"The Town's Active Service Club," with the slogan "Unity for Service."
