Country club activities can have a snooty air to them in some communities. They might ring of exclusivity and keeping out the rabble.
In Philipsburg, the merging of the former Philipsburg Country Club with the local Elks chapter created something that might still have a membership base but has become a true community asset. And it’s something that really shows this weekend.
On Saturday afternoon, the Philipsburg Elks Lodge and Country Club will welcome local kids for a holiday tradition. Boys and girls will prepare to go “I Spy” on colorful treasures in the Easter Egg Hunt at 2 p.m.
To register for the fun, call 342-0379.
But a fun day is only the beginning. The Fun Night Out starts at 7 p.m.
Presented by Charles A. Jones Insurance, the annual event is a fundraiser for the Friends of the Library, the local supporters of the Holt Memorial Library.
The group continues to raise money for the new permanent Front Street home the library now occupies.
The party features music from The Loudmouth Band starting at 8 p.m., and will include a silent auction and a 50/50 raffle. Minimum donation for the fun is $10 per person. Tickets are available at the club, from Charles A. Jones Insurance or the library, and from the Philipsburg Revitalization Corporation.
Old or young, member or public, just looking for a good time or wanting to support the community, the country club has something for you on Saturday.
