Club Service Work Day

Service Work Day

Every First Saturday of the Month we will gather as volunteers for light service work around the Club and special projects to keep EAC in top-top shape!

* Deep Cleaning of common areas such as coffee service, fridge, bathrooms and meeting tables, mopping of the floors, etc.
* Maintenance to building areas for “handyman” repairs to doors, fixtures and common areas, touch-up paint, etc.
* Clean-up of the outside entrances for seasonal debris, garbage/recycling, keep the entrances safe & secure.
Other special projects as needed! 🙂

Meet-up at 10:30 am, enjoy some service work with fellow club patrons, good music and perhaps stay for the noon meeting.

Improvement Projects Weekend Aug 24-26 (No Brunch)

Club Improvement Weekend – New Floors!!!

We’ll be re-doing the floors within the club on the weekend of August 25th, which will require 36-48 hours for the epoxy to cure prior to setting up the meeting room for use again.

Volunteers are needed Friday afternoon to clear out the common areas of the club, as well as help early-evening Friday to resurface & wash the floors with our rented cleaning equipment.  This will allow us to ready the floor areas to be primed and treated late-Saturday morning to dry and cure over the remainder of the weekend.  Volunteers are still wanted in applying the epoxy if you have the skills!  

We still need 2-3 additional Volunteers for Floor Prep Work on Friday Evening at 5pm and/or Saturday Morning at 7am.  Please contact Ron E. @ 630.215.6600 or John @ 847.334.6236 if you are interested and or able to lend a hand at some service work!

There will be rented equipment, safety masks, regular old mops and supplies on hand – we just need your extra hands and willingness to help make these floors shine! Questions?  Contact:
