UA Action Civitan
The club’s purpose is to serve the community, provide opportunities for members' fellowship, and increase members' knowledge. This is done by identifying needs not met by other organizations or individual efforts. In all they do, Civitans seek experiences that provide life direction, character building, leadership development, and the satisfaction of helping others. As a result of this, a Civitan typically experiences a heightened sense of self-esteem and accomplishment.
Activities include: Officers:
DCH Pediatric Ward Bulletin Board President: Savannah Hughes
Trick or Treat for Canned Goods Vice President: Kelly Schexnayder
Supplies for Head-start Secretary: William Clark
Ornaments for Nursing Home Historians: Anna Collier and Rebecca Keating
Fundraiser- Fall raffle for Alabama Crimson Tide Basketball, Football, and Baseball goodies.
The creed is unique among the volunteer organizations, being the most completely developed ethical
statement set forth for a service club and serving as a challenge to every Civitan. Originally written in
1922 by Champ Andrews of the Chattanooga, Tennessee, Civitan Club, it has been modified over the years.
Last changed in 1984, it reads:
I AM CIVITAN: as old as life, as young as the rainbow, as endless as time.
MY HANDS do the work of the world and reach out in service to others.
MY EARS hear the cry of children and the call thoughout the world for peace, guidance, progress, and unity.
MY MOUTH utters the call to daily duty and speaks prayers in every tongue.
MY MIND teaches me respect for law and the flag of my country.
MY HEART beats for every friend, bleeds for every injury to humanity, and throbs with joy at every triumph of truth.
MY SOUL knows no fear but its own unworthiness.
MY HOPE is for a better world through Civitan.
MY MOTTO: builders of good citizenship.
MY BELIEF: do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
MY PLEDGE: to practice the Golden Rule and to build upon it a better and nobler citizenship.
