Civic Organization Chair Person’s Message

The Southside Business Men’s  Club (SBMC) has been  supporting this community since 1932.

Over that period of time it has given back to the community in multiple ways. Civically SBMC has assisted in the viaduct overpass at University Blvd. & Philips Hwy, Helped in funding Friendship Fountain, and more recently given funds and time to the building of Touchton Park (currently under construction) at the corner of Touchton Rd and Belfort Rd.. These are just a few of the projects SBMC has been involved in.

SBMC also gives out scholarships to deserving college students. In 2018 SBMC gave over $50,000 in scholarships college students.

With all the good that SBMC does, it is known as the most fun Club to be a part of in this area.

I am sure that In 2019 with Bill Bishop as our President that SBMC will continue to be the flagship Civic, and Charitable organization in Jacksonville Florida.
