In the history of the human race we find there are certain days that mean much to individuals, organizations, towns, cities, states and nations. This principle certainly applies to the town of Coeburn nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.

There are two days that mean much to Coeburn. The first one is her birthday, February the 23rd, for on February 23, 1894, her charter was approved and she became a corporation and a real, sure-enough working town with a future.

From that day and date the citizens of Coeburn worked onward and upward toward a high goal, but they always found there was something lacking. That something was sought after from various sources, but all in vain, until some persevering and determined business and professional men called a meeting of the citizens to be held in the Masonic hall for the purpose of advising the organization of a Kiwanis club. There were three or four meetings of this nature and purpose held (luring the months of December, 1922, and January and February, 1923, when a temporary organization was formed to meet the conditions and work out the pre-requisite to a permanent organization which was to be a Kiwanis club.

The second day that means so much to Coeburn is March the 8th, for March the 8th 1923, was the day of Coeburn's second birth. The day Kiwanis Club No. 974, of Coeburn Virginia, was chartered. A real and living club to create in the mind’s of Coeburn's citizenry a sense of responsibility and a spirit of co-operative effort.

The club started off with a membership of fifty men who believe in and live for community development.

On the evening of March 8,1923, the first club meeting was held at Kiser's Cafe, at which time the first officers and directors of the club were elected and installed. At this meeting there were present as guests George A. Selig, International Field Representative, and several representative members of the clubs at Norton and Big Stone Gap, Virginia. The officers and directors elected and installed at this meeting were as follows: J. D. Clay Jr, President, C. 0. Ramsey, Vice-President; R. N. Havens, Secretary; W. S. Dodd, Treasurer; J. P. Lay, District Trustee; Directors, J. L. Addington, W. S. Murphy, J.C. Smith, J. C. Dawson, B. Y. Perry, W. C. Franks, and W. M. Huffman.

On the night of May 15, 1923, the club's charter was very graciously presented by LTG Charles S. Armes and was accepted by J. D. Clay, Jr., President of the club. Mr. E. Henson, Governor of the West Virginia District, was present as one of the speakers of the evening. Hon. W. E. Burns, Judge of Russell County, Virginia, was also present and gave a most interesting history of Coeburn from the time when she was called "Guest's Station" down to the present. There were representative club members present from the Norton and Big Stone Gap Clubs. Last, but not least, each and every Kiwanian had his wife or sweetheart as his guest. All in all, this occasion, charter presentation night, was one long to be remembered by every one present.

The Coeburn Kiwanis Club has done, or has been instrumental in having done, many things for the betterment and uplift of the town and community and has consistently lived up to the Kiwanian motto, 'We Build". The club started out, in its work with its efforts turned toward those things which were most needed in the community. So it was, On a lunch day early last spring, that the club met at eight o'clock a. m., and marched in a body to the community cemetery, where they worked to beautify the "City of the Dead" until their usual midday lunch time, when they returned to the Winchester dining room for lunch.

Last summer 10 of the community's underprivileged boys were cared for at a camp at Dryden, Virginia, for 10 days. The club bas lent substantial and material encouragement to the boys of the community's high school, the members furnishing uniforms for the football team. Through (the activity of the club, the N. & W. Railway Company was persuaded to build a beautiful and substantial concrete bridge across Tom's Creek, which was badly needed for wagon and track traffic to and from their depot. The club launched a movement to beautify the town by widening Front Street, planting trees and making grass plots along this street after it is widened to the extent that this would be possible. The club brought Christmas cheer to the individuals and families of the community who were in needy circumstances.

This club, working with the two other clubs of the county, is largely responsible for the passage of a $100,000 bond issue for the building of a home for the aged and infirm and a home for delinquent girls. Through the activity of the club a volunteer fire department was organized in Coeburn. The club has been very active and effective in the matter of good roads leading into our town and community. The club now has its efforts turned toward such objects as parks, concrete roads, state highways, etc., which will mean much to the community and county. Th: Coeburn Club is a live club operating in the town with a future.
