Welcome to Clinton Turners

Welcome to Clinton Turners!

The Clinton Turn Verein (pronounced “TOORN-fair-ine”) recently celebrated its 150th anniversary in May of 2017. The Turners most important contribution to American life in their communities has been their advocacy of physical education and fitness. Today, we are one of 51 societies nationwide that participate in and host athletic and cultural activities and serve our community and membership when in need. We have a gymnasium on the 2nd floor of our building and offer Gymnastics programs for youth in the immediate area. Click here for more information about our Gymnastics programs. We are also a social club with a full-service bar and club room (with darts, pool table and card tables). We have rental facilities available (indoor banquet hall (with kitchen capabilities) and outdoor pavilion). Click here for more information about our Facility rentals.

We are always looking to expand our membership and would love for you to consider becoming a member. For more Membership information click here.

Celebrating Turner Women

The month of July was a powerful month for Clinton Turners as two of our women were recognized for achieving feats. First, we start with our long-time member, Nancy Starr, who turned 93 years young on July 7th! Nancy is our Clinton Turner's Correspondence Secretary and has contributed significantly to the Clinton community as Chairman of the Library Board of Trustees, a volunteer at Clinton Hospital, delivering meals on wheels, a long-time Treasurer of the Berlin Country Club Ladies League and the list goes on. Nancy never runs out of steam and we wish her the happiest of birthdays!


Michele Hutcheon, was honored as a member of the Mass. Commission on the Status of Women’s 2018 class of Unsung Heroines.  Rep. Harold Naughton Jr. recommended Michele for this recognition because of her long and continued service efforts in Clinton and surrounding communities.

Michele was honored with 130 other Unsung Heroines for her outstanding contributions to her town in a ceremony on Wednesday, June 20, 2018.

In addition to serving on our own Clinton Turners Entertainment Committee, Michele serves on the Clinton Elks Lodge Fundraiser/Activities Committee, providing college scholarships for local students. She served as chaplain for nine years and was a member on the Elks 100th Anniversary Planning Committee (2013).  


She also serves on the Clinton Democratic Town Committee and has been politically active in the community since 1999.

The Unsung Heroines are women who don’t make the news, but make the difference. They are the women who use their time, talent and enthusiasm to enrich the lives of others and make a difference in their neighborhoods, cities and towns. They are mentors, volunteers and innovators who do what needs to be done without expectations of recognition or gratitude. These women are the glue that keeps a community together and every community is better because of their contribution.   We are so proud of Michele and congratulate her on this very prestigious recognition!
