“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others”

Mahatma Ghandi

What is Civitan?

Civitan is a non-sectarian, non-political, non-discriminatory organization that has three major goals.  Service, Knowledge, and Fellowship.

Our Lanark and District Civitan Club is focused on providing service to the Lanark Highlands area.  Over the years, the members have had the chance to gain knowledge about their town, the people that live there, and the needs of those people.  Most importantly, they have achieved this success through an atmosphere of fun friendly effort.

Members of our organization know that at some time or other, the work “Civitan” will have to be explained.

You won’t find it in any dictionary because it is a world that has been coined from a Latin word meaning citizenship, and that fits perfectly with our Motto, “Builders of Good Citizenship”.  The aim of Civitan has always simply been to help people.
