Our United Methodist Men’s club is structured as an ecumenical gathering made up of community members representing many different religious affiliations along with several civic and fraternal organizations. Our focus is to serve God by serving our community. We accomplish this by seeking out and helping all those in need throughout our community. Among our projects is the care and upkeep of several senior citizens homes, the building of a handicap ramp, and repairing a storm damaged roof. In addition we maintain the community cemetery and are spearheading the creation of a Veterans Memorial Monument.
Members of five organizations – the Gaines Lions Club, the Barons Motorcycle Club, the Knights of Columbus, the Gaines/DuffieldMen’s Club and the Byron Masonic Lodge – are working together to install a monument to the village’s own Medal of Honor winner, Sgt. Amos Weaver.
