The Western Club is self-supporting through contributions received from its meetings and from dues and
contributions received from members of the Foundation.
at meetings cover less than 50% of the costs of running the club, coffee, etc. The Foundation picks up the tab for all costs
not covered by contributions. These costs include day to day operating expenses as well as all maintenance and repairs. Repairs
and improvements happen quite often with an older building such as ours and are sometimes very expensive. AA suggests maintenance
of a "Prudent Reserve" sufficient to cover six to twelve months of expenses. Unfortunately the Club has never had
a "Prudent Reserve" of this magnitude.
