The Platte County SERTOMA Club invites you to join with us as we Make a Difference for those at risk or impacted by hearing loss. 

“Give Silence a Voice.”

Sertoma was found in Kansas City, Missouri, April 11, 1912 by George W. Smith, M.D., Charles E. Allen, M.D. and William R. Rowe at the Coates House Hotel, then a fashionable hotel in Kansas City.

What is Sertoma?

Sertoma connects those who wish to serve, with those who can not hear. Sertoma’s purpose is to meet the needs of communities through volunteer service. Sertoma’s vision is to create communities of change under common leadership and with a common voice to serve the many in need.

Sertoma’s mission is to improve the quality of life today, through education and support, for those at risk or impacted by hearing loss.

Sertoma’s national focus is on assisting the more than 50 million people with hearing health issues and educating the public on the issues surrounding hearing health. Sertoma is a curious word until three very important words come together in unison:   SERvice TO MAnkind.

The Platte County Sertoma Club also sponsors projects to promote freedom and democracy, to assist youth and to benefit a variety of other local community needs in Platte County. For more information on Sertoma, visit
