Diamond Jubilee Song

“Watch Our Story Grow”

I came across a video that was a photo slideshow of the 1984 National Convention in Edmonton, Canada. What excited me about this was the song that was the music for the photos. It is a neat song and I recorded it and listened to it many times in order to write down the lyrics and share with everyone. (I will post a recording of that slideshow at a later date)

If someone comes across this blog entry and knows more about this song or Active 20-30 history, I would also LOVE to hear any stories you’d like to share (please send me an email: mchlspil@gmail.com). It would be nice to re-record this song, but you don’t want to hear me trying to sing it.

The Active 20-30 song from Edmonton
Way back when
in 1922
there were two clubs
who saw so much to do
youth to be served, must serve and this they knew
from these two clubs our story grew
There came a time, in 1961, that found us all
how much we could become, if our two clubs could serve the world as one
we’ve come so far yet just begun
Around the world and across the seas, we joined hands and hearts and histories
The Active 20-30 club, just watch our story grow
Yes around the world and across the seas, we joined hands and hearts and histories
For fellowship and leadership, just watch our story grow
We share a bond
Working side by side in which to meet all challenges with pride
And the future is in children everywhere
To guide them, everyone must care
Around the world and across the seas, we joined hands and hearts and histories
The Active 20-30 club, just watch our story grow
Well around the world and across the seas, we joined hands and hearts and histories
For fellowship and leadership, just watch our story grow
Take a man who never stands so tall as when he kneels to help a child, is small
Young and strong, we serve the world as one
We’ve come so far yet just begun
Around the world and across the seas, we joined hands and hearts and histories
The Active 20-30 club, just watch our story grow
Well around the world and across the seas, we joined hands and hearts and histories
For fellowship and leadership, just watch our story grow
Yes, all around the world and across the seas, we joined hands and hearts and histories
The Active 20-30 club, just watch our story grow
