    Project Update

    The Columbian and House Committees worked together to update the ladies restroom in Waldie Hall. Another stall was added, new tile on the floor and walls was a major improvement and a new vanity and an additional mirror and prep area were added to the room. This project was paid for with funds from both committees. A number of members were involved in installation of products used and the updating of needs like changes with the electricity. We have received many compliments on the changes made! The floor in the Waldie Hall has been rejuvenated. Our terrazzo floor is really shining again. A representative from Lansing Sanitary Supply came in and assisted with a new and improved product. All carpet areas in the lounge and Flynn Room have been cleaned. This too is a project done once or twice per year. This is another project that our members volunteer to work at. At the end of summer Bob Edwards coordinated the efforts of a group of the chicken dinner workers to clean all the stainless steel e equipment in our kitchen. Ron Riley brought in his steam cleaner that was greatly appreciated. Lots of workers got our equipment to be a lot cleaner and look really good again.

    Debit/Credit Cards

    We have added the ability to accept debit or credit cards for charges for products purchased at our building. This service became available beginning on October 1, 2017. We are charged a fee for each transaction taking place on our machine. Therefore, we will charge one dollar for each transaction done with our bars in the building. We have received a number of requests to install this type of machine. We discussed the use of this machine with many of our members and appreciated their suggestions regarding the type of uses and the charges that are acceptable when using our debit or credit cards.

    Save the Date

    Our annual $100 party will be held on Saturday, February 24th, 2018. We sell 250 tickets at a cost of $100 each. The ticket allows two people to enter the party and includes your drinks and food during the evening. We have a band and disc jockey for the evening. We draw ticket stubs from the $100 tickets for prizes of money.
    Please save Saturday, February 24th for an enjoyable evening with friends and family!

    Help Needed

    We are looking for a few members who are willing to work as security personnel for weddings and other events held at our building. We try to rotate the members willing to help out every now and then during the year. The main responsibilities deal with making sure minors are not drinking, not allowing people to bring their own alcohol into the event and assisting the bartenders as needed. This is a paid position. Contact John Smith


    Just a reminder, we are still selling ice in EIGHT POUND BAGS for $1.50 per bag. We only sell during regular bar hours. The bartender will make sure you can get to the freezer to get the number of bags you purchase.
