The Fishers Farmers Market will host Club Day at the Nickel Plate District Amphitheater on August 19. From 8 a.m. to noon, come explore local clubs, meet new people, and possibly find a new interest! Joining a club provides a great opportunity to form new relationships and become more engaged in your community, both of which can benefit mental health and help bring our city a step closer to being stigma free. Let’s get to know three local clubs participating in Club Day!

Fishers Multi-Faith Community for Compassion

The mission of Fishers Multi-Faith Community for Compassion (FMCC) is to provide opportunities to learn about our neighbors, build true relationships, and make a difference. During monthly breakfast meetings, club members will plan and discuss upcoming activities, which may look like tours of local sacred spaces, volunteering for service projects, breakfasts with the mayor, and “Meet Your Neighbor” events to learn about other faith traditions. FMCC will also sponsor special movie nights – last February, they viewed the Academy-Award nominated documentary short film Stranger at the Gate, followed by a Q&A with the movie’s subject.

There are a multitude of ways to get involved in the upcoming months, such as August’s “Diversity of Food” dinner, where everyone pitches in and shares food from their various cultures, September’s Habitat for Humanity build and Sacred Spaces tour of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints temple, and November’s Sacred Spaces Hindu temple tour. 

Randy Siebert says being in FMCC “is a great opportunity to learn about other faith traditions and discover how similar they really are, and to work side-by-side with someone who looks different from you.” Get involved by attending any breakfast meeting or event, joining the Facebook group, and signing up for the email list, which includes many faith leaders in the area.

Fifty Club of Fishers

Fifty Club of Fishers was established in 2017 to help provide supplemental death and disability benefits to the police officers and firefighters of the City of Fishers who die or become disabled while acting in the line of duty. The organization’s goal is to have 250 members consisting of people who live or work in Fishers and who support this worthwhile cause. 

Every year, Fifty Club hosts spring and fall events designed to promote awareness and drive membership. This past spring, the club held their inaugural Unsung Hero Award event, where Mayor Scott Fadness presented the awards to one police officer and one firefighter who go out of their way to help and lead others behind the scenes without recognition. In addition to learning more about the club and the help it provides, these events are also a great opportunity to meet with some of the police officers and firefighters in our community.

The best way to get involved is to attend club events, become a member, and help promote awareness of our club,” says Fifty Club member Brad Brees.As a member, you are not only able to connect with others in the community but most importantly, give back and support those that sacrifice their lives every day to protect you and your family.

Kiwanis Club of Fishers

One of 7,000 Kiwanis clubs dedicated to serving the children of the world, the Kiwanis Club of Fishers works to fulfill the international organization’s motto of improving the lives of the kids in our community. In their monthly meetings, the Kiwanis Club of Fishers discusses ways to serve the kids in the community, which may include providing financial support to various causes, acting as a mentor, or organizing a service project. One popular event hosted by the club is their free annual Egg Hunt, which over 200 kids participated in last April. The club will also be implementing a few new signature projects in the coming year.

Guests are always welcome to come to their monthly meetings that take place on the second Monday of every month at 6:30 p.m. in the Delaware Township Government Center. “Anyone that cares about the kids in Fishers is a fit for our club,” says Nick Vail of the Kiwanis Club of Fishers. “We believe in being a club that is active and visible with all our projects. Our main focus is being a good example and mentoring kids that we help. We want to foster a strong sense of community and servant leadership.”  

The Kiwanis Club of Fishers is always looking to grow. Check out a monthly meeting or connect on Facebook, where you can find opportunities to get involved and more ways to help kids in our community. (Kiwanis Club of Fishers Facebook)
