Documenting Maine Jewry : Macabee Club (Portland)


CLUB OBJECTIVES

The Macabee Club bases its yearly program on a four-point platform. Realizing that an organization must be well-rounded in its structure to be successful, we attempt to carry out each phase of this program with equal vigor. The four objectives are: religious participation, social affairs, athletic activities, and community service.

The Club always encourages religious attendance. This attendance is not merely confined to Sabbath services but to programs of the Brotherhood and the U.S.Y. as well.

Our social functions are always highlights during the year in youth activities. We hold several dances each year culminating with our annual spring formal "Basin Street".

We participate in many athletic contests with other fraternities in the city. At all times sportsmanship and fair play are encouraged. These contests inspire much healthy spirit within the Club.

Community service is probably our most important objective. Besides contributing to various civic organizations, we select one particular group to which we direct most of our efforts. Among those we have contributed to as major projects have been the Pride Training School for Retarded Children, the Blind Classroom Building Fund, the Center Day Camp Athletic Fund, Pine-land Hospital, and the Greater Portland Mentally Retarded Children Fund.

All endeavors of the Macabee Club are based on the principle of learning by doing through "brotherhood".
