Discover Our Origins
 
The Cosmopolitan International Club of Aurora, Illinois was chartered in April of 1927 and upon completion of the membership drive, the Inaugural Banquet was held on Monday, June 6, 1927 at the Masonic Temple, with 65 members. Frank Weisgerber was the first president, a true civic leader. He was the spirit and symbolof child welfare in Aurora. It was through his efforts that the Aurora Cosmopolitan Club, became a sponsor of the Edna Smith Children's Home, (also known as the Juvenile Protective Association) that lasted through the late 50's. The club provided Christmas parties with gifts, Easter egg hunts, summer camps, day trips, egg and milk needs for all 40 children, plus three entries into the annual soap box derby. Frank Weisgerber passed away on April 11, 1952 and left $250,000.00 of his estate, to the Edna Smith Children's Home.
