The purpose of the ’23 Club is to honor the memory of those who planned and built the City of Longview as a social, spiritual, cultural, and economic center for local residents.
Originally a social organization for lineal descendants of the founders of Longview, the ’23 Club is now open to all who share a love for the City, its beauty and history.
On the first Monday of October we hold our annual dinner and get together.
