Our Democratic Association of Bethlehem was formed on April 25, 1904.
Known as the 540 to locals, we are an active non-profit and are currently the oldest Democratic
Club within the state of Pennsylvania and one of the oldest within the United States.
Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic regulations our club, as are all other clubs, is running the risk of having to close its doors. We are reaching out to the public for assistance in keeping this historical icon open.
In this current political environment it becomes even more important to perserve the quickly disappearing social clubs that have existed and offered refuge and companionshipbto their members for over 100 plus years.
Although we are a private establishment, new members are always welcome.
Those interested may contact us 610-866-8100.
We look forward to meeting any of you interested in joining and appreciate any monetary assistance you can give.
