Welcome to The Fort Atkinson Club Blog & FAC Year #2

Congrats, Everyone & THANK YOU so much for all your support!  We survived a full year here at The FAC Community Center — with flying colors, in my humble opinion.  We started out with two events (along with a couple of open houses) in January 2015.  Then, throughout the next year, we had over 200 more!  Hundreds of people have enjoyed this beautifully renovated historic building.  We’ve seen parties (including several SURPRISES) to celebrate birthdays from age one to age 90 — showers for babies and brides — even a baptism out on the patio — graduation parties & holiday celebrations & family gatherings — wedding ceremonies & receptions & anniversaries — disco dances & corporate events — retirement parties & reunions & memorial celebrations of life — AND themed fundraisers from a Polka Party to a Downton Abbey Dinner to our own Octet in October combining two string quartets up in the FAC Theater, which also hosted both Dracula and a stand-up comic named Dwayne!

Of course, FAC is so much more than an event space.  We hosted a Candidate Forum, Family Movie Nights, & our Lecture Series — poetry readings, book clubs, & farmers markets — Arts Workshops & Science Projects for Middle School Youth — assorted service club lunches & dinners — donor appreciation evenings & community group meetings — as well as dance lessons and other various classes ranging from T’ai Chi to Word Press Programming.  WHEW — Busy Year!  AND, there’s even more to come.  Anyone up for a day of music on the Patio this summer?  Stay tuned to this space as well as our Facebook Page — plus, an electronic newsletter is coming soon!
