In case someone else hadn't heard of it either.

SERTOMA. A curious word until three very important words come together in unison: SERvice TO MAnkind. Sertoma’s primary service project is assisting the more than 50 million people with speech, hearing and language disorders. Sertoma also sponsors community projects to promote freedom and democracy, to assist youth and to benefit a variety of other local community needs, as identified by the individual clubs.
Headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri, Sertoma is a 501(c)(4) not-for-profit international organization dedicated to “SERvice TO MAnkind”, with 20,000-plus members in more than 650 clubs across Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico and the United States. Every year Sertoma clubs raise more than $20 million for local community service projects. Through these projects, as well as grants and scholarships, Sertoma clubs return those funds to their respective communities - and they have lots of fun doing it while building life-long friendships.

I have an elderly neighbor who is a member of the Sertoma culb. They are a great organization and he is a great man. Good job! Way to make a difference.

SERvice TO MAnkind name (Sertoma) was a name to replace the original name of The Cooperative Club of America. The name was chosen in a contest. The name was submitted in 1948 by Noble W. Hiatt, the President of the Sertoma Club of North Indianapolis. Go to for information about this local club that is still in existence today.
