Members of the Civitan Great Southwest District at the 2017 Convention in Birmingham. Santa Fe Civitan members are most of the back row.
Civitans are dedicated to improving their communities through helping others.
Locally, Civitans are involved with a great variety of service projects designed to help many residents in our community. Through fund raisers and volunteering our time, we provide services and products to many deserving individuals and organizations such as the New Mexico School for the Deaf and New Vistas.
On the international level, Santa Fe Civitan, along with thousands of chapters around the country, funds the Civitan International Research Center, a center for research and treatment of autism, mental retardation and other developmental disabilities.
Civitans seek to be more informed about their communities and improve themselves through lifelong learning. The wide range of Civitan programs vary from numerous community issues addressed by local government and business leaders, to mental and physical health and other personal concerns. Many programs are presented by organizations needing our help. Through fun, informative programs Civitans learn about the needs of their community, and as concerned community leaders Civitans focus their efforts on deserving causes.
Fellowship is a very important part of a growing, productive service club. Civitan offers its members many opportunities to socialize, meet new friends and network with business associates. Working together on club projects is a lot of fun, and there is always time to enjoy the company of other members and guests at club meetings, but throughout the year Civitan plans special get-togethers for members and guests and just for fun. We spend time relaxing, chatting and building strong, lifelong friendships. Here are just a few of the social activities we enjoy:
