The Community Club of Brookside

Membership

Dear Neighbors,

The Board of the Brookside Community Club would like to thank you for decades of support and involvement in our community. Our little club has served as a gathering place for our town in the best of times and in the worst of times. We have had birthdays, funerals, weddings, Super Bowl parties, Boy Scout meetings, Girl Scout meetings, Republican fundraisers, Democratic fundraisers, New Year’s parties, and even our own local award show The Mendies. If there is a reason for people to gather together, the Brookside club has hosted it.

The club is entirely member and volunteer supported. We receive NO FUNDING from the township. 100% of our funding comes from membership dues, rentals, and donations. The maintenance of the club is performed by members. All the events that many thousands of our children have enjoyed over the years, from the annual Egg Hunt to the 4th of July parade, are not only free but organized and put on by the members of the club.

The Club was founded in 1923, but our building is over 100 years old and is desperately in need of repairs and renovations. We are launching a Special Membership Campaign through July 31st of 2018. Our goal is to raise $50,000, with 100% of the proceeds being dedicated to a Capital Improvements fund for the club. Urgent and immediate work will include roof repairs, structural repairs, paint, flooring, lighting & landscaping. The balance of the money raised will be used for ongoing updates and emergency repairs. Memberships will be valid from September 1, 2018 through August 31, 2019.

Rental rates for non-members are double the member rate, and the member rate will only be available for those that have been members for 6 months or more.

Our ongoing annual membership dues will be raised from $40 to $60. We will be introducing a new 2 year membership at a discounted rated of $90. 2 year memberships will be limited to 25 in total.

Finally, we have created a special tier called a Sustaining Member. The cost is $150 and includes 1 year of membership and a  custom Brookside Yeti Tumbler or Colster. There will only be 150 of these memberships available so make sure you sign up quickly! 

Any donations large or small are always appreciated!!

Please review the membership form and feel free to contact any of the board members with questions. We can’t wait to see everyone at the parade!!
