Hearing Screening Hearing Screening of school students at Berryhill Schools is a primary sponsorship of the Townwest Sertoma Club. Each year the club members work with Berryhill SERTEEN Club members and students from the University of Tulsa to screen selected students. It has been a great partnership that brings together the four groups. In 2011 the club and TU students started screening the Remington Elementary School students in the Tulsa Public Schools system.

Route 66 Village is Tulsa's newest highway attraction, located on the west bank of the Arkansas River, featuring the restored Frisco 4500 Meteor Steam Engine, Murray Hill Business Car, vintage Weyerhaeuser Tank Car and Frisco 1157 Caboose. The Village is home to the Red Fork Centennial Oil Derrick, the tallest in the Americas, built as part of the Oklahoma centennial celebration. Townwest Sertomans have supplied the labor and many connections to restore the train and develop the theme park. Club members are also working on the restoration of several Tulsa Street Railway Trolley Cars that ran in the center of Tulsa on Main Street circa 1918-1930. The trolleys will join other static exhibits when they are restored.
Club members are actively involved in supporting local projects along a section of Historic Route 66 in Tulsa designated at the Red Fork Main Street corridor. Involvement includes cleanup campaigns, watering and maintaining parks and vegetation along the main street.
