The Lubbock Caprock Chapter of AMBUCS was chartered on June 1st, 1956 by the Lubbock Downtown chapter with 44 charter members. James E. Norman was the charter president of Lubbock Caprock. Lubbock Icons, Paul Bush and Delwin Jones were charter members of Caprock. Our members include bankers, nurses, business owners and a wide spectrum of other occupations. Our annual fundraiser is the largest basketball tournament in the nation. All of the money we raise goes towards charitable activities.
We are recognized as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization under IRS regulations.
We meet for lunch on the first and third Thursday of every month from 12:00 to 1:00. Most meetings include a presentation from a community leader about local events. Visitors are welcome to attend and a tasty lunch will be provided.
