Welcome To The Manchester Club

Over 100 years of tradition.
The Manchester Club has provided a meeting place for men in and around the North Shore Community. Since 1905 the members of The Manchester Club have met every third Thursday of each from September to June at the American Legion Hall in Manchester by the Sea, MA to socialize and discuss important issues pertaining to their beloved community. It invites a variety of speakers to talk about issues of concern and interest to the community. It also has an important social role in providing scholarship monies and collecting resources for local organizations.

The Presidents Office

Since 1960 the Manchester Club's main civic activity has been to award scholarships to graduating high school seniors. This year five Jimmy Hatcher Scholarships from the Manchester Club went to Emily Arntsen, Morgan Fraser, Liam Logue, Amelia Roder and Ella Roder. Named after its strongest supporter, the Jimmy Hatcher Scholarship Fund has awarded 274 scholarships totaling over $175,000 to graduating seniors planning to attend college. These awards are made possible through the proceeds from the annual Jimmy Hatcher Scholarship raffle and the Manchester Club Golf Tournament. This year's 6th Annual Manchester Club Tournament to be held on September 8 still needs sponsors. If you or your employer are interested, please fill out one of the sponsor forms on the Club's events page. Members and friends of the club have been very generous in donating prizes that have made the raffle a success. For information on the scholarships or donating prizes to the raffle next year, contact Raffle Committee Co-Chairmen Tim Brown at 978-500-4048 or Bob Ryan at 978-526-1566.
