The InterService Club is comprised of members of the various service clubs in the Phoenixville, PA area. Each year a banquet is held to increase brotherhood among the members and to present the Ambassador Award. The award is to honor an individual for outstanding contributions to the community, state or nation and to his/her respective service club. This award goes to a local resident who has shown a commitment to community service in the area of politics, education, business, community organizations, sports, medicine, research or cultural initiatives.

History of the InterService Club

On Thursdays, gentlemen from the Phoenixville Lions: Joseph Rudick (former editor of The Daily Republican newspaper, now known as The Phoenix), Wright Miller, Austin Messere and Richard Rosmos played golf at Kimberton Golf Course. Joseph Rudick came up with the idea that it would be nice to get all the service clubs together for one day. The group of men proposed the idea to the Phoenixville Lions Club and they thought it was a good idea. So all the clubs at that time were notified and they agreed. As a result, the InterService Club was started in 1962. It started as a golf outing and there would be a dinner served at Kimberton Golf Course in the evening. The event attracted both local club members and non members. There were prizes given to the golfers at that time. In the beginning, there were no awards given at the dinner. A couple of years later, it was decided that an award would be given to someone from Phoenixville who promoted Phoenixville outside of the community, when it was not their job to do so. This is how the InterService Club got started over fifty years ago. Over the years the golfers dwindled. The golf event was eventually dropped but the InterService Club Banquet continues to this day.
