International Banana Club And Museum
16367 Main Street
The world's first and largest Banana Club Museum was opened in April of 1976. (Some members have started there own Banana collections) Ken Bananister, T.B. had to find a place to display and show all the banana items sent by B.C. members, friends and people he met around the world. Everywhere the "Banana Man" went he passed out banana stickers and spread the word on the Banana Club and it's good purpose&."to keep people smiling, induce more laughter, exercise the sense of humor, and stay in good health". It seemed that thousands of people of all ages wanted to contribute and most wanted to earn the B.M.'s (Banana Merits) to earn one or both of the two Degrees in Bananistry. (The M.B. "Masters" and the PhB "Doctorate"). My guess is they wanted some recognition and we gave it to them with medals and neck ribbons to prove it! Of course the T.B. has purchased and collected the lions share of items over the past thirty years. Rest assured that membership is a good thing! In fact, it is the gift for all reasons.
Members of the B.C. are known for their desire to maintain a good attitude and sense of humor. We have fun in an otherwise hectic world, and our purpose is to bring a smile on and induce laughter wherever possible! We use our BC cards to get special rates, favors, discounts and surprises. Member selected titles have something to do with the "fun" involvement.The Club is dedicated to maintaining the positive attitude and keeping spirits up! Using the club card and personal titles is a great way to get attention. Wearing a B.C. shirt or just a banana sticker will get you special attention. Our intent is to spread the word and stay in good health too! Everyone needs this vehicle which serves as a reminder to keep smiling and exercise the sense of humor daily!
