A Proud Tradition

a source of lasting friendship and public service for over 90 years

The Young Men's Club of Bloomington is part of a long and proud tradition. It has been a source of lasting friendship and public service for over 95 years. The membership consists of more than 90 local businessmen and professionals.

Since the club was founded in October, 1916, it has been known as the most relaxed business and professional club in town. Attendance at the regular Tuesday noon meetings at the Ozark House has never been required, but members attend regularly to enjoy the companionship, entertaining programs, and friendly heckling of officers and fellow members.

A message from our President

As we embark this year on our Club’s second century of providing fun and enjoyment for thousands of men in the community over the many years, I am honored to serve as the 2017 President.


With a present membership of over 100 members, we have guys from all different backgrounds.  Their mutual interest in being a club member is to share  social camaraderie and have fun.  Many lifetime friendships amongst  members  and their spouses have developed via club membership.  There is not a weekly luncheon meeting goes by  that you do not hear the roars of laughter coming from inside the Ozark House.  The programs presented are always diverse, informative and on timely topics concerning the community, state or nation.


The Ozark House provides a lunch to satisfy your palate.  The Club provides wonderful food for your brain and positive vibes to enjoy the rest of the your week on.   We also have numerous social outing events thru out the year to enjoy time with our spouse’s and significant others.


Though we are primarily a social club, we do have a Youth Opportunity Foundation to assist either the youth of our community or organizations assisting them to become better citizens and achievers.


I invite you to be my personal guest  whether your new to the community or from here to come and check out all the positive benefits to yourself in joining our club.
