Clubs & Organizations
Club Purposes
Like most communities, Naperville has a very active culture of clubs and organizations. Some groups were formed for social purposes, while others were established as charities to aid citizens. The Naperville Lyceum, a men-only debating club, met as early as 1836 - just five years after Naperville was settled by Joseph Naper. As the young village grew into a thriving, cosmopolitan community, so did the number and size of its clubs and organizations. Clubs met and organized to discuss topics like religion, food / dining, social work, gardening and literature. While most clubs were social gatherings, some helped raise money and services for the community. Clubs and organizations play a vital role in the heart of a community like Naperville.
