About Us Hours of Operation Monday – Friday : 10:30 am to 1:30 pm and from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm Saturday : 8:30 am to 1:30 pm and from 4:30 pm to 9:00 pm Sunday : 9:00 am to 1:30 pm and from 5:00 pm to 8:30 pm Visitors Visitors are welcome at our club from 30 minutes before to 30 minutes after any scheduled meeting. The Club The Alano Society is a non-profit corporation separate from the organization of Alcoholics Anonymous. It exists to administer and support the building and property located at 2218 1st Ave. The Alano Society derives much of its income through squad rents and fundraising, and perhaps most importantly, dues paying members. Often times there is confusion to newcomers who hear the AA tradition “The only requirement for AA membership is a desire to stop drinking.” It’s true!! To be an AA member you need only have a desire to stop drinking. No one who comes to our club with an earnest desire to stop drinking and wishes to attend a meeting is turned away. The difference is when you become an Alano Society member, you help support the club and meeting groups that exist within. Membership To become a member of the Alano Society, talk to a trusted servant of a squad you find yourself most comfortable with and pledge that squad. For new members, there is an introductory rate of $15 per month for the first three months and then the regular rate of $20 per month thereafter.
