In early 2002 the Satellite Beach Recreation Dept. asked the Satellite Beach Community if there was an interest in starting a senior club. A meeting was announced and was attended by five people! From those meager beginnings, an ad-hoc committee was formed to move forward with initiating a senior club.
The ad-hoc committee met and officers were nominated. A decision was made to name the new club, “55+ Club of Satellite Beach”. The committee started the process of creating a Mission Statement; By-laws and Activities. A kick-off luncheon was planned for Dec. 2002 and was very successful, 140 new members were registered.
In Feb of 2003 the Organizational Model was presented by the ad-hoc committee and approved by the board. The board moved forward to file the appropriate paperwork to register the club as a 5013C.
From March 2003 to current date the club’s organizational model and activity growth strategy was implemented and current membership stands at 600+.
The 55+ Club’s Mission Statement is:
“To sponsor and coordinate programs that provide social,entertainment and educational opportunities that will enhance the quality of life for our 55+community”.
The club is dedicated to “SEE” Social, Education and Entertainment
The 55+ Club welcomes all seniors 55 and up and is NOT limited to Satellite Beach residents. The dues are $7.00 per year. A newsletter is mailed to your home every other month and email announcements are often sent.
