We have completed the restoration of the original dining room at the Hax Mansion in the Museum Hill Neighborhood in St. Joseph, Missouri. Most of the first floor at our Alano Club has now been restored. There remains only a hallway and the kitchen.
Gamblers Anonymous has been meeting in the dining room since 2002. These photos were taken 30 minutes after the restoration was complete.
This is a first for Alano – a silent auction. The committee has gone beyond expectations and have organized a really sophisticated event. The following flyer is being distributed in the KC Central Office of Alcoholics Anonymous Newsletter – we expect this to reach about 150 Groups in the KC Area. This could be a great event – please come and support Alano.
Saturday May 23, 2015 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM
401 S. 11th Street St. Joseph, Mo.
Silent Auction items so far:
2 Day weekend getaway
2 New car batteries
Portable battery Charger
Case of ribs

The Bylaws Committee is inviting all to come and hear the presentation of the proposed updates to our Bylaws and Articles of Association. The Special Meeting, affirmed in writing by three members, is scheduled for Sunday, March 29, 2015, at 5:00 PM. There will be a brief presentation about the process and the purpose of the Bylaws Committee.
Essentially, the Committee was commissioned by the President to look into better job descriptions of the Officers, to better identify areas of responsibility for Board Members, and to create a more transparent governing process. The first meeting the Committee chose to review all of the Bylaws. The Committee met faithfully almost every week for eight months to write a seven page document. No votes were ever taken at any meeting – we operated with the idea of consensus. Nothing is in the proposed Bylaws that any of us cannot support.
The general outcome of the process is a redefining of the governing body of the Alano Club. Emphasis has been placed on the Board Responsibilities. The Board is being given great responsibility and the authority to fulfill their duties. We believe the new governance will better protect our mission and our assets. Another outcome is a more transparent process to the general public. We are attempting to join the larger public health community in and around St. Joseph.
Please plan on coming to the meeting.
