The Pioneers Incorporated was organized in December of 1952 following a Holiday social event that was so delightfully successful that its organizers decided to stay together and form a permanent organization and work for the best interest of the community in the areas of politics, education, employment and industrial development. The name PIONEERS was chosen denoting a firm commitment to opening new doors and paving new roads. The Pioneers were incorporated March 25, 1953.
The Pioneers are described in the Articles of Incorporation as "A Civic Organization for The Purpose of Promoting, Advancing, and Stimulating Social, Cultural and Civic Interest in Hopkinsville." These goals are accomplished through active participation, support, advocacy, and involvement in events and issues of interest in our community that promote justice, personal achievement, equality and a better quality of life.
The members of the Pioneers Incorporated are expected to be kind, sincere, and dedicated Christian Men who are willing to unite unselfishly in activities and causes which promote a better Hopkinsville- Christian County.
