10th District Club

(Volume 1, Thomas V. Brennan)

Attempted clubs lacked the vision that is the backbone of our present and only organization K-I-W-A-N-I-S.

One George Selig happened in one night and sold Kiwanis to some 30 Norton citizens, and as we are a bunch of joiners, no trouble was experienced in launching the Kiwanis craft, the organization being completed anuary 18, 1921. Governor Hank brought us our charter March 22, 1921, and implanted the germ of Kiwanis into each member. This all happened in 1921 and while we are only 2 years old, we are strong and raw for our age. We have an active membership of 82 out of a population of only 130 and our attendance ranks with any club. We are indebted to the Bristol, Virginia-Tennessee, Club for sponsoring us and starting us out the right way.

To our first President, J. L. Camblos (present Mayor of Norton) is due much credit for the time and thought, devoted to the Kiwanis Club in its infant days, and our present incumbent, Dr. Miles, is keeping the organization in high gear.

The Kiwanis Club was instrumental in securing Billy Sunday for a six weeks' revival and Norton is the smallest town to enjoy this distinction. Through the generosity and broad vision of our neighboring towns, Big Stone Gap, Wise, and Coeburn, we built a huge tabernacle for the occasion and later remodeled it into our present town hall and city officials' offices. Residents of the towns referred to were really embryonic Kiwanians and it has been the pleasure of the Norton Club to sponsor both Big Stone Gap and Coeburn Kiwanis Clubs.

We have in hand the matter of a National Park on High Knob contiguous to this city, which will be a place of recreation for the whole county and a wonderful view to the ubiquitous tourist. A road is included in the plans for the park will tie into the main roads. Our Kiwanis Club is also working on this.

We established free mail delivery and are working to have this include parcel post delivery as well. We maintained a sum-mer camp for underprivileged boys. Contributed to the library for the school, and are now underwriting a football team, securing funds for uniforms, etc. We were instrumental in securing the Norton branch of the State Laboratory, which is of pronounced benefit to everyone in the county.

We are working now with a view of having the railroads erect an overhead bridge to take care of vehicle and pedestrian traffic from the north to the south of the city, which will minimize, if not totally eliminate, the danger to school children in crossing the railroad. Too, we are giving support to the extension of the city. limits to enable children that are now outside the present corporate Imes to attend the very efficient schools we enjoy. This would mean a population of five thousand and a possible city government.

Our club is unanimous on the subject of good roads and has passed resolutions in favor of the bond issue and had our committee attend the meetings in Richmond. Furthermore, we sent a delegation of 40 to Pikeville, Kentucky, to cooperate with the Kentucky gentlemen who have good roads uppermost in their minds, viz., the Lonesome Pine Trail, with which you are all of course familiar.

Disinterestedness is the chief characteristic of Kiwanis and our club is looked upon in the light of a bank-one does not draw out more than he puts in. Prior to the formation of our club it was "every man for himself and the devil take the hindmost", however, there has -been developed a surprising and pleasing amount of consideration for the other fellow. We have found out that the fellow who dared engage in the same line of business as ourselves is really a good scout, and have exchanged ideas with him that proved mutually profitable.

Our paramount rule is that one's religion and politics are checked at the door with his hat, this notwithstanding that we are cognizant of the hellish machinations of the Republicans and have told them so.

History suggests past performance so we will modestly refrain from enumerating other good things, some of them tangible, that we have done. We are no pecterists, looking to the past, but are imbued with the idea that our history is yet to be made, and that our past efforts are but stepping stones to greater service. It is a source of gratification that anything recommended or sponsored by Kiwanis is accepted at face value by the community at large, and we jealously guard this good opinion, and everything that savors of self interest, at might create discord, is carefully' scrutinized by our efficient Public Affairs Committee. We opposed to the point of prevention the formation of a Konclave of the Knights of the Komic Konsonants, and steal their thunder by announcing to the cosmos that we are all 100% Americans.
