Who We Are

The Metro-West Alano Club is a not for profit corporation registerd in Michigan and operating in the Detroit Area. We are a 501(c)(3) corporation legally recognized by the Internal Revenue Service and operated by a board of directors for the benefit of it's membership. Officers are elected for a term by the membership which is overseen by an election commitee made up of members. Membership is open to the public.

Purpose

The Metro-West Alano Club was formed October 29, 2008 by a group of like-minded alcoholics desiring a club in the Redford/Livonia area where they could gather and have fellowship and fun together, and where they could promote the message of recovery to all who seek it. The Club is not endorsed nor opposed by Alcoholics Anonymous; however sharing the message of AA and the AA way of life is one of our primary goals.

Direction

We successfully negotiated a two year lease agreement with Redford Union School District which ended February 19, 2012. After a one year renewal, the relationship we had with the school system was ended to make way for the demolition of the old school site.

Through the tireless and skilled guidance of valued club members, the purchase of the 27225 Grand River Redford Mi 48240 location is completed. The purchase was made with club funds and is a land contract for the remaining balance.

A great amount of gratitude should be given to Fred Cathey, Randy LeCompte, Tom O'Brien, Stuart Butler and several legal and property specialists brought in by Randy LeCompte to assure the soundness of the deal.

 

Mission

The Metro-West Alano Club is a self-supporting social club for alcoholics and those who support them. The Club exists to provide its members with an alcohol and drug-free environment promoting social interaction, fellowship, and education.

"We have been dealing with alcohol in its worst aspect. But we aren't a glum lot. If newcomers could see no joy or fun in our existence, they wouldn't want it. We absolutely insist on enjoying life."
AA Big Book, Chapter 9
