What We Are About
On July 2nd of this year the Kiwanis Club Of Elma will mark its 60th year serving the community of ELma. The Kiwanis telephone Directory has been an important part as a community service and fundraiser, supported by our advertisers and generous donations from the community. The Club has been publishing the directory for 54 years and distributes them to each household in Elma. Proceeds provide funding for the support of projects such as our Annual Scholarship Program, Figherfighters Recognition Dinner, EMW Boys and Girls Club, EMW Sports, Scouts, Senior Citizen Christmas Party, Annual Christmas Tree Lighting and much more.
The 1962 Directory Edition consisted of only 96 pages. Remember when your phone number started with NL2, and area codes were unheard of? Maybe you old-timers might remember some of our advertisers back then who have since gone: William F. Jasel Plumbing, Tunkey Cheverolet, Jamison Garage, Earl Lexo Insurance, Briggs Dairy, Mikes Bike Shop, Primrose Motel, Elma Manor Restaurant, MAx Kadet, Tsujimoto Farms, Pine Grove Farms, and Adams & Klehm, just to mentiona few businesses we remember.
Today the directory contains over 175 pages. The continuing support of our business community and your donations make it possible. We thank them for advertising, and you for supporting them. If you knowa need in the community please let us know.
