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.

Reoccurring Facebook Event:

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:

Elgin’s Community Christmas Dinner

We are proud to announce the first annual community Christmas dinner. There be plenty of free food, beverages, desserts, music and games and face painting for the kids. Free for all.

Since our first Thanksgiving dinner in 2009, these get togethers have truly evolved into “community” events. Everyone is welcomed and many people from all walks of life have become friends. It is a time to get together, meet others and share a meal. Our dream for these dinners is to grow them into community wide “family” dinners just like you would have in your own home…just a bit bigger. Where everyone does their part and then sits to enjoy each other and the food at the same time.

Because of all of the support from our donors, partners, volunteers and patrons, these dinners are evolving into just that.

Please come join us at the Community Dinner. Please spread the word.
