This page is dedicated to matters concerning our members, the backbone of all that we accomplish. Your being informed of all actions, whether business or procedural, is important to this Club’s success, your input is what governs the whole Corporation. Trustees are involved members, but you certainly do not need to be a Trustee to be involved.
ELECTIONS JANUARY 21, 2017!!!
The election took place, ballots counted and results were known. Many questions surfaced as to how it was handled and an old Trustee review meeting concluded to basically allow the outcome as accurate. This was questioned again when we learned of our status with the State Solicitation of Funds Certification including requirements for Board Members’ criminal history. A solution of completing necessary paperwork and assurance that individuals would not be involved in soliciting or distributing funds, allowed all elected persons to remain on the Board. Six members resigned during a disclosure meeting of how to resolve this State requirement and we were sad to see so many hurt feelings. Learning and growth are important elements of recovery, they are also important to this corporation as we move forward. New policies for candidates should reflect what we’ve learned for future elections.
The 2017 Board of Trustees, as of the February Trustee Meeting, are;
Bill Antonen – President
Marisol Camacho – Vice President
Bob Reid – Treasurer
John Murray – Secretary
John L., Jerry, Popeye, John H., Sandy H., Rick C., Bruce P. (Alt.)
The Board of Trustees manage Club Recovery according to guidelines found in our ByLaws and Policies & Procedures, for the purpose of providing a safe place to hold meetings, fellowship and sober events. A big responsibility considering the serious nature of recovering. PLEASE get involved in any way you can, You deserve it!!!
New Couples Dues:
We now have another option for dues. If you are a couple and pay for a one year membership, it will now cost $150/yr. The past amount was $180/yr. We hope this helps those wonderful couples that enjoy supporting the Club with dues and involvement!

January 10, 2015 Saturday @ 11:00pm: Membership Vote for Trustees. Sadly, only 15 members showed up for this meeting. 3 early votes were made. Gladly, the Club will continue to be managed by those dedicated to the effort.
August 15, 2014; Please except my personal apologies for not keeping this page up to date. I try to update the events page and that always includes activities related to members. Still learning. The changes to the Board of Trustees recently merits this update. Beth E. has stepped from the board, Ed M. also did so several months ago. Kate G. has stepped forward and was voted to replace Beth E., John L. (an alternate Trustee) replaced Ed M. earlier in the year. Suzanne B. is our new alternate Trustee and is an Activities Chair. So here’s our list of Trustees and their specific responsibilities as of today: Bill A.-President, Oscar H.-V.President and Meeting Coordinator, Bob R.-Treasurer, Darral M.-Secretary and Webmaster, Steve S.-Facilities Manager, Rick C. and Wendy L.- General Store, John L.- Newsletter Editor and Membership Chair, Kate G.-Volunteer Coordinator, Matt M.-Facilities assistant, Marisol C.-Activities Director, Bruce P., and Matt B.. Of course, Bill A. can direct you to the right people if you have questions.
Just so you know, a lot of energy goes into making this Club work! The Activities Director has the added weight of public relations with all Club attendees, along with that same weight (plus some) the President shoulders. Time wise, the Facility Manager seems to log a lot of behind the scenes activity keeping the place functioning and clean. Producing the Newsletter, tracking memberships, staffing volunteers for the desk and keeping the Store functioning are all further examples of how much effort is being made toward our Club. You see, it truly takes a LOT of energy to make this facility available for you, me and those seeking recovery. Our fellowship will reinforce the positive, productive life we receive in the process of healing. YOU, TOO, CAN BE A PART OF THIS TASK!!!!
Workshop was held 2-1-14 for all those interested in volunteering for Duty at the Club. The only way we can be open for meetings, gatherings, or general business, is to depend on our volunteers. So the goal was to communicate, simplify and try to be on the same page for consistency. We understand how confused we can get when things get complicated or done different each time. Though it got heated at one point, I think we all learned a thing or two and are better prepared to serve the membership when the doors are open. A GREAT BIG THANK YOU goes out to all that donate their time, energy and patience to help keep the Club open, safe and Welcoming!!!!!!!!!!!
The General Membership Meeting was held 1-25-14, here are some of the notes taken from that meeting. The total minutes were sent to each member and a copy may be found at the Club.

Meeting opened by Bill A.. He asked all members present to add their name to the attendance sheet being passed around, that the main purpose of this meeting was to vote for Board of Trustee positions for this next year. 24 names were listed and accounted for. He explained the voting procedure, including the numbering system noted on each ballot. He then introduced each member running for the Board of Trustees. (There were 11 candidates for 8 positions, for those that were not present)
Hotdogs and Lasagna served.
Results of vote are as follows;
3 yr. position – Marisol C., Steve S. (Happy)

The meeting continued with information exchange, questions and answers, and did I mention Lasagna and Hot Dogs? The Saturday 2-1-14 SERVICE WORKSHOP @ Noon was announced for Trustees, duty volunteers and anyone interested in becoming involved with Service at the Club.
A General Membership Meeting was held on October 19th @ 2pm to review the Bylaws changes. After a thorough review, they were accepted by unanimous vote and this Revised version is available to members upon request, copy posted at the Club. We also set the date for the next General Membership Meeting to be January 25, 2014 @ 2pm. It is important that members attend this meeting for voting on the Trustee positions needed to represent our purpose and direction of the Club! As an added incentive, we will be having hotdogs, soda, ? for all to enjoy. Please mark your calender and give your input into the Club Recovery future!!
Our facility was vandalized sometime early Sunday morning 10/20/13, with several windows being smashed, but our hearts and purpose will not be dampened. The purpose of this organization is greater than what some people may think and the repairing of glass and resolve to heal is already taking place. Thank you to all those members who have spent many hours with the clean up and repairs needed for our over-all safety and well being. Your support runs deep!
Have you seen the New Road Sign? Frankie and Oscar saw to it that we can be found from CR 586. See the picture at the bottom of this page, another pic is on the “Location” page. Check it out the next time you’re at the Club. A Donation helped us with the purchase and is a worthwhile investment, did you know some folks have a hard time finding us? Big Ed even added lights to help us see it in the dark.
