Anderson reminds everyone that the Aurelia Club House is a great place to have a
get - together, such as a wedding or baby shower, wedding rehearsal, class reunion, or just playing cards with friends. The club house can be rented for a nominal fee, and the use of the clubhouse is not limited to members of the Aurelia Golf Club.
The clubhouse has a full service kitchen with a stove, refrigerator and sink, plenty of counter space, and a big grill if you would like to grill some meat for your meeting. There is also a big screen television on which customers can watch their favorite team play.
Anderson works during the daytime hours, and her staff of five - Denny Wieland, Amanda Smith, Ann and Mike Dornack, and Howard Dowdy, alternate working the evening hours.
The new bar addition built at the clubhouse three years ago, known as "The Back Nine," has become a popular place to play cards and enjoy the company of friends, and Anderson hopes that community members will use the facility even more in the future.
During the month of October, the club house will be open on Sundays and Mondays from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. ; Tuesday through Thursdays from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m.; and on the weekends from 11 a.m. until midnight or later. The Clubhouse will be open on Friday and Saturday evenings from November 1 - April 1, as well as for special occasions. Friday and Saturday nights have seen some pretty good crowds for card playing this summer and fall, and announcements will be forthcoming soon regarding euchre and "500" card tournaments. There will, of course, also be New Year's Eve and Super Bowl parties this winter.
Anderson is hoping to make the Club House more available to the public. They recently hosted a community Soup and Pie Supper, and on Saturday October 28, the LSB band will be performing rock and roll music at the Clubhouse as the final event of Aurelia's annual Harvest Hoopla celebration. Wearing a Halloween costume is optional, but a prize for the best costume will be handed out at the dance.
