The Brimfield Area Men’s Club is able to help the Brimfield area by the generous support and volunteer efforts from those in Brimfield, area communities, and generous support from local businesses. The help from the ladies of the area who assist with Old Settlers and many other fund raisers held throughout the year is invaluable.
The celebration of helping the community we live in through public service is highlighted each year in August with three fun days of family entertainment--OLD SETTLERS DAYS.
