Torch Clubs provide a forum where people from different professions and interests can meet in a friendly and enjoyable setting. We enjoy good fellowship while eating an excellent meal followed by a paper and discussion.

The paper is the main focus of the club meeting. The presenter is usually a club member, speaking on a topic of special interest to that person, although outside speakers may be invited. Following the talk, the speaker engages in lively exchanges with members, further exploring the ideas.

To maintain a neutral forum, Torch Clubs are solely devoted to the intellectual exchange of ideas. They never get involved with causes or fund-raising for outside projects. Torch Clubs never promote political or social causes nor participate in civic projects. These valuable functions are left to other organizations to which Torch members belong.

While membership is by invitation only we welcome inquiries from professional people (active or retired) who enjoy sharing ideas. If you would like to learn more about our club and know a member, he or she can give you more information. If you do not know a member, you can contact one of the officers listed below. We will be happy to tell you about our organization.
