The bar schedule for September 1970 has just been located. The bar was open every day for a total of 50 hours each week. The old Club building was purchased in 1970. The link to the bar schedule is at the top of this page.
 

Due to the considerable use of our Banquet Hall for  Council meetings, social events and rentals, the floor  was beginning to show significant wear. The issue was presented to the Columbian Club Board of Directors for consideration. After discussion, the Board directing the President to organize a committee to provide bids to replace the floor in our Banquet Hall.

After conducting a search for the appropriate vendor and after considerable negotiations, it was agreed to award the project to Everlast Floors Inc. from Whippany, NJ. The new floor was installed on Monday March 10th. Stop by the Member Lounge and take a look at our beautiful new Banquet Hall floor.
