FIRST, LET'S TAKE A MOMENT TO REMEMBER
Before the festivities begin, we feel it important to take time to remember those we have lost and those who are living with HIV. World Aids Day (December 1st) is not only a time to reflect on the past but to look towards the future. This year, the theme is: FOCUS, PARTNER, ACHIEVE: AN AIDS-FREE GENERATION. Educating yourself and knowing your status is very important. AIDS RESOURCE CENTER OF OHIO have excellent testing facilities and resources for anyone with questions or concerns and they host HIV/STD Testing twice a month here at Club Columbus. Next testing dates are Thursday December 11th from 6 p.m. and Tuesday December 16th at 5 p.m. Members and non-members are welcome.
SHARE THE MERRY
'Tis the season of giving so we are taking part in two special Holiday Fundraising Events this year at Club Columbus. For starters, December 1st-15th, find us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/TheClubColumbus and Facebook at www.facebook.com/ClubColumbus. Like us, follow us and each time you comment, re-tweet or share any of our posts with the hash tag #PUTARIBBONONIT, we will donate $5 to the Aids Resource Center of Ohio. Starting December 15th-23rd, we will host a holiday food drive for Project Open Hand of Columbus. Bring in canned/non-perishable food or toiletry items and for each item you donate, we will give you a ticket to enter a special prize drawing held during our Annual Holiday Party on December 23rd. A simple act of kindness can benefit the lives of many.
OH WHAT FUN
It is the best season of the year to extend our thanks to our loyal customers with FREE LOCKERS from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday December 23rd. We will spend the day passing out little gifts bags for all who enter to join in on the festivities. Our ANNUAL HOLIDAY PARTY will start at 7 p.m. where classic food and drinks will be served so that festive times can be shared between old friends and hopefully new ones. Gifts from Santa and the special drawing for the winner of the Holiday Food Drive will be held at 8 p.m.
SIMPLE HOLIDAY PLEASURES
It is always important to remind you that we have several ongoing "happenings" here at Club Columbus. From our $10 Locker Special Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to our Sunday Lunch's Every Sunday at 1 p.m. there is always something going on. If you are between the ages of 18-24, you can get a FREE Guest Membership any day or night of the week. It is a good way to save some money while making new connections and new friends.
