About our Club

The Alano Club of Waukesha, Inc. is a non-stock corporation and a non-profit organization established by recovering alcoholics with the financial help of service groups and Waukesha business people.  Many communities in Wisconsin and throughout the world have benefited by the existence of clubs servicing this continuing need. The Alano Club of Waukesha opened its doors in the lower level of a remodeled church located in downtown Waukesha in May 1973. The Club purchased and remodeled an old sporting goods store at its current location 318 W Broadway, Waukesha, and is an established asset to the community.
