Let's return to our imaginary town of Cityville.
Club Cityville (C2) is a very active member of the community. The food shelf and other charitable programs are funded through dues, as well as the generosity of local businesses. Most of the local business owners have at one time been in a leadership position with C2, although it is not a chamber of commerce or country club. Membership is generally open to anyone.
Club Cityville sponsors some activities that might seem old fashioned. There are C2 men's and women's groups, with the occasional father/son and mother/daughter events. C2 is also not shy about patriotism or religion. The pledge of allegience often takes a prominent role at C2 functions, as does a non-sectarian prayer.
C2 is not a single issue group. It would best be described as a membership organization that promotes what it believes is best for the community through its various activities.
