In 1937, several men in the area around Brookfield organized the Brookfield Men's Club. It was formed as a non-denominational group for fellowship and to improve the community for its citizens. Rev. Earle Gordon became the first President, and the fellowship that formed helped many through the long winters.

One of the original members, Donald MacNeille, is still living and resides in Ellershouse. He continues to visit and holds a warm spot for the club.

Many worth while community projects originated from the Men's Club. The 'Eagle' was started in the early 1940's as a newsletter for the troops overseas. The BMC sent chocolates, maple cream, and cigarettes to all serving in the war. The Brookfield Fire Department was founded by the club, who were also instrumental in the construction of the Memorial School and the South Colchester High School. Some of their other contributions included sidewalks on highway #289, the Centennial playground, street lights and designations, sewage treatment, fish stocking of Trenholm's Lake, tree plantings, 60 years of Cadet sponsorship, the creation of Citizenship Awards at the high school, and the "Eagle Award" presented each year to the area's top citizen. A yearly highlight is the Annual Ladies Night, where the club honors the ladies of the area with a dinner and entertainment.
