Sertoma Hearing Aid Recycling Program. The Sertoma Clubs in Topeka collect used hearing aids, to be refurbished into new hearing aids, and then provide them to needy elderly individuals. Many elderly people in the Topeka community are now able to hear, thanks to the generosity of the Topeka Sertoma Clubs.
Sertoma sponsors the Great Topeka Duck Race annually, where thousands of rubber ducks are dumped into Lake Shawnee, and those who adopt a duck have a chance at great prizes. This fun sponsorship benefits Big Brothers/Big Sisters and our Sertoma Clubs. This is a fun event!
Copies of the Declaration of Independence are given out by Club members to newly naturalized U.S. citizens, in recognition of Freedom & Heritage, another of Sertoma s focuses.
This award is given to individuals each year who provide unselfish service to mankind in the Topeka Community, Past recipients include: Leroy Garvin, Joe Thompson, Lee Dodson, Lou Falley, Grant Cushinberry, Alvin Moran, Terry Harbert & Scott Schmalberg.
