Become a Member of the '23 Club
Become a member of the '23 Club. Unlike in the origins of the organization, you don't have to have a lived here in 1923. You don't have to be a resident of Longview. We don't have weekly or monthly meetings you have to attend. Being a member gives you an opportunity to learn more about Longview and being a part of keeping our legacy going.
Each year on the first Monday in October, the Longview ’23 Club hosts a dinner and get-together. The 2017 dinner will held on Monday, October 2nd at the St. Rose Parish Center.
Each fall our main program for the evening features different historical perspectives on our city’s history. This year will be Growing Up in the 50’s Longview. The program for 2016 was "A 1923 Business from Glasgow, Scotland to Longview, Washington." In 2015 we had a video presentation of Longview Schools’ first 75 years. In 2014 we had an informative and lively review of the Finnish Settlers presented by Maila Cadd and Carolyn Caines. The previous year Dennis Weber and Karen Dennis brought us a new book about Longview, in the Images of America series, with photos of early Longview and its citizens. Previous topics have also included the Historic Longview Community Church, Old Westside Homes Then and Now, Longview’s Historic Autumn Splendor, and R.A. Long’s Dreams.
The last few years we've had a presence in the 4th of July Parade. You can follow some of the activities of the '23 Club on Facebook.
