Chilliwack, BC – The Christmas parties have started in earnest at the Chilliwack Alano Club, where it is a family atmosphere – clean and sober.
On Friday Christmas Day December 25, the Alano will have free Christmas Dinner (Turkey or Ham with Dessert). That will be available from 10 AM until 3PM or whenever the food runs out.
The Club itself will open at 8 AM.
Up until New Year’s Eve, there are “Night Owl” meetings at 10:30 PM every night, should the strain of the holiday season become a drinking or durgging problem for you.
Similar to other charities, not just Christmas, the Chilliwack Alano Club is asking for food and cash donations.
The Alano Club is experiencing financial strain, as are other charities , but this may turn into a problem for the 33 year old institution. Memberships are down ($5 a month, $60 a year) while at the same time, various grants are dwindling or drying out completely. Any donation, monetary, building supplies or food are always welcome with open arms and lots of gratitude.
