MAY LIFELINE 2021

Greetings from the Alano Club Board of Trustees.  Here is an update on club happenings, events, contests and an update on what we’ve been up to since the last Lifeline article.  We also want to let members (or potential members) know how to pay club dues and help support keeping us open!

Club Improvements:

  • The back property has been cleaned up.
  • Fire extinguishers have been refilled and safety checks completed
  • Walls have been repaired and painted in the dining room by volunteers and our manager.
  • The kitchen hood suppressor will be refilled and serviced this month

Savings & Membership:

  • We are working to update our membership data with email addresses which cut down on our costs and improve our ability to get messages out to you.  We will never share these addresses with anyone else and will respect you by not sending messages carelessly.  Please be sure to update your records with us by emailing your name, membership # (if you have it), current phone and email address to support@alanoclubslc.org
  • We currently have 84 dues paying members.  69 of which are eligible to vote (3 months of consecutive dues).  
  • Membership dues can be paid by mailing a check or money order to:
    • 5056 South 300 West, Murray, UT, 84107. 
    • (Be sure to include your name, address, phone and email so we can credit the correct account or create a new one.)
  • If you are attending meetings at the club, you can pay dues with cash or check.  Talk to the meeting secretary and they will help get it paid through our kitchen staff. 
  • We are working to upgrade the website (https://alanoclub.slc.org) to allow online credit card payments for dues.  Coming soon!

News & Other Info:

  • Meeting secretaries/contact people:  Please emails (support@alanoclubslc.org) your name, email and phone number so we can contact you if there are last minute changes of some kind that affect your scheduled meeting.
  • The club is compiling a list of members with service skills and businesses which we can use to get bids for work needed in the future before we reach out to the general business public.  Please send us a description of your business or skills with contact information to support@alanoclubslc.org.
