The Addieville Community Club has replaced the roof and will install new gutters in the spring. A new tin roof was put on the building constructed in 1973 so it will last longer and require less maintenance, said President Tom Schwankhaus.
The Addieville Area Jaycees designated profits from its recent Pancake Breakfast for the roof fund.
Income from regular club events will repay the loan, said Schwankhaus. Anyone wishing to make a contribution can contact treasurer Jenny Clary.
The Community Club has reactivated the Queen Of Hearts drawing, which was put on hold for a few months after half the amount was won in the fall. The drawing is held on Fridays at 8 p.m. Tickets are sold at Frederking’s Eagles Nest and at the Community Club on the night of the drawing until 7:30.
Fish fries are held on Fridays in February and March.
Since the softball tournaments, adult ball leagues, and homecomings have not been held for years, the club has lost those sources of income. The chicken dinner in May continues. The Club rents the building for weddings, anniversaries, reunions, and birthday parties.
The 65 Club members take turns working at the fish fries and bartending at events. A benefit to active club member is a discount on hall rental.
The Community Club maintains a ball diamond for youth teams and has playground equipment.
New members are always welcome, said Schwankhaus. Dues are $10 a year, or $100 for life-time. Schwankhaus, who is from Okawville, is the longest serving president, at about 15 years.
