About the Commercial Club
The Commercial Club was established in 1908 by a group of Morristown citizens interested in the promotion of the community, events and businesses. Today the goals are the same. Their motto is "Your Community Volunteers at Work".
Membership is open to all interested persons. Meeting are held on the third Monday of each month at 6:00pm at the Community Center. Membership dues are $10.00 per year, per person. The Commercial Club operates the Community Center Bar during events and uses the bar profits to sponsor/co-sponsor community events throughout the year, to purchase Community Center enhancements and, upon request, makes donations to other community organizations.
An annual meeting is held in January with an election of officers, appointment of board and committee members, a potluck supper and welcome of new members. New members are welcome at any time throughout the year. During the year, the Commercial Club sponsors an annual Community Spring Dinner at the Legion, the Children's Easter Egg Scramble, the Dam Days Pageant reception, the Dam Days beer garden, the city-wide garage sale, co-sponsors the national Night Out picnic in the city park, provides appreciation treats for the school staff during National Education Week, the Children's Halloween Party, the residential Christmas lighting contest, the annual Christmas drawing and members deliver Christmas gift bags to senior citizens and shut-ins.
