(John W. Carter Jr and Owen R. Fawley)

In 1919 the young men returning to their homes after the World War felt the need of an organization in the town of Martinsville that had as its main object the advancement of the community interests of the town. The consolidation of the potential possibilities found in the serious and concerted efforts along municipal lines, a saner town government conducted with the greatest possible results with the least possible expense. With this thought in mind, the Young Men's Business Association was perfected and for about a year and a half did for the town of Martinsville what no other organization had been able to accomplish.

In 1920 the Young Men's Business Association recognized that though the town's business men it was possible to have an organization composed of all branches of commercial and professional business who would forget their petty differences and fight for the community interest, yet this organization lacked a bigger something. To which it could anchor and hold together those who had a tendency to drift. It was decided to investigate the various civic organizations of national or international reputation with a view of organizing for this town. The committee recommended the Kiwanis Club as being the one best suited for a town of this size. Kiwanis International was communicated with and their Field Representative George Selig met the members of the Young Men's business Association and explained what Kiwanis stood for and what it would mean to a town of this size. At this meeting it was decided to organize. Teams were put to work to secure 50 businessmen in as many different lines of business as possible to become charter members. Some doubted the possibility of securing that many men, particularly since the memory of man runneth not to the contrary it had been impossible to secure even a baker's dozen to join an organization of this nature with, for this town, such a large charter fee. But they had reckoned without the Young Men's Business Association, whose members in less time than that alloted them by Mr. Selig had the requisite number of names for a charter.

A temporary organization was perfected, with T. G. Burch, President. Later these officers were made permanent officers of the organization for 1921. The Young Men's Business Association was disbanded and became absorbed by the new Kiwanis Club of Martinsville, the organization being completed March 14, 1921, and the charter presented May 26, 1921.

The Kiwanis Club found the field well prepared and cultivated for an extensive program of municipal betterment. Due to the splendid work of the Young Men's Business Association the time was ready for better streets and the minds of the citizens were ready for the question of a bond issue for such improvements. The bond issue was carried and today Martinsville is out of the mud and has seven miles of bitulithic streets.

The county had not held a fair for several years; the Kiwanis Club got behind the project and held in 1921 exhibits in one of the garages of the town. These exhibits were composed mainly of chickens, hogs and pigs and a few products fruit, vegetables and canned goods, the work of the Boys and Girls Clubs. In a small way this was so successful that the Kiwanis Club organized the Henry County Fair, Inc., and in the year 1922 held on the fair grounds of the town one of the biggest and most successful fairs this county has ever had.

From bitulithic streets for the town to improved highways for the county is not such a far reach. The Kiwanis Club went to work, launched and carried a successful campaign for a county bond issue for schools and roads and today the County of Henry is out of the mud and has handsome new school buildings.

1922
President J. E. Howard

One of the outstanding accomplishments of this year was the connecting of Martinsville with the growing town of Fieldale with a hard surface thirty foot road.

1923
President A. L. Tuggle

The Kiwanis Club has kept the pace set by the two preceding administrations. The club has continued to foster its protege, the Henry County Fair, Inc., which is putting on during the week of October 16 an even bigger and better exhibition than last year. The club also continued the work for the completion of the hard surface road to Fieldale raising the funds required for construction under the Robinson Act, and celebrated its opening at a meeting at Fieldale, August 28, 1923.

We have co-operated with the Roanoke Kiwanis Club in efforts to secure a hard surfaced road from Rocky Mount to Roanoke, our committee having made several trips to Roanoke and Richmond with committees from Roanoke and Rocky Mount on this project. Construction on this road is under way.

At the International Convention in Atlanta our club had the largest delegation of Kiwanians from the Capital District. The club has gotten in closer touch this year than ever before with neighboring clubs, having taken part in several inter-club meetings here and in neighboring cities. Our District Trustee, Tom Burch, is working up plans now to plant Kiwanis clubs in two neighboring towns. An attempt to organize at Brookneal was unsuccessful, not because the fellows there did not want Kiwanis, but because the town was not large enough to support a club. Our visit resulted in the organization of a Young Men's Business Association, one of whose purposes will be to make the town large enough for Kiwanis.

Among the meetings of special interest this year were a Brunswick Stew in an outlying section of the county, at which 500 farmers were guests of the club; Teachers' Night, entertaining all teachers in the city schools; Boy Scout Night, Father and Son Night.

Our club has underwritten a subscription of $1000 for the Children's Home Society of Virginia.
