Owls Club Community Contributions



 We are a Dartmouth based Social Club that not only looks after its members, and their families, but we are also a Club dedicated to the growth and success of our Dartmouth community through a broad range of contributions and activities of its members

Our Club history reveals and supports a record of commitment and achievement over eighty-eight years.   The Club focuses on its members, their families, and the Dartmouth community. Members are important and jointly the Club is important to its community of Dartmouth.

Below are some of the organizations that the Owls Club and its members have supported financially and with volunteers. Many of the philanthropic and volunteer activities were carried on over many years and some continue today. The year in brackets after each item indicates when the Club began supporting and contributing to the various organizations. (There is some information not shown due to the loss of over 20 years of records for some periods in our history.)
