Every morning, we start our day with the Members Meeting. We check in as a group, discuss clubhouse business, and sign up for daily work tasks. On Thursdays, we have our Decision-Making Meeting, where members and staff vote on matters pertaining to the operations of the clubhouse. Members not only help create our meeting agendas, but are invited to facilitate our meetings as well.
Every member can make a meaningful contribution in the operation of our Clubhouse. This sense of responsibility and belonging is powerful, enabling members to increase their self-esteem and confidence. We have three work units that are part of the Work-Ordered Day Program:
Members take pride working with staff to help create delicious, nutritious meals for peers daily. Following menu planning, members help shop for groceries, prepare and cook meals, serve lunch, and tidy up. It’s all about creativity, fun, and teamwork! Members also cater Board meetings and events, and bake treats for Clubhouse and fundraising events.
Membership & Communications Unit
This unit provides members opportunities to develop skills in a range of areas including reception, membership administration and outreach, and communications. Our receptionists help with everything from transferring phone calls to greeting guests and providing information—all excellent experience to build communication skills and self-confidence!
Staff and members together maintain and clean the indoor and outdoor premises of the Clubhouse. This includes cleaning and sanitizing bathrooms, floors, and tables; organizing garbage, compost, and recycling bins; laundry; and caring for the many plants that thrive in our beautiful space.
When we are finished our work tasks for the day, we enjoy social and wellness activities together such as community walks, chair yoga, book clubs, arts and crafts, and music. Many wellness activities at the clubhouse are member-initiated and led such as the book club, cycling group, and knitting group.
