Tak Argentinis, president of the 200 Club, spoke to Hinesville Rotarians on Tuesday during the group’s regular lunchtime meeting at Western Sizzlin’.
The club’s primary mission is to assist families of law enforcement officers and firefighters who die or suffer critical injuries in the line of duty. Since the 200 Club was founded 10 years ago, it has provided benefits to 38 families of fallen officers and firefighters, distributing $600,000, Argentinis said.
The president said the club exists because of the kindness and generosity of the members, whose dues go to help families in need.
“The club was created by men I respect, admire and like,” Argentinis said.
The group offers different levels of membership, starting with a $250 membership fee.
