About the Upton Men’s Club

The Upton Men's Club exists to provide support to the community where public funds fall short. We get involved in the community by supporting programs and activities within the community both by volunteering and providing financial support.

We plan and execute activities such as senior dinners and community cleanups, and we raise funds through special events such as auctions, golf tournaments and civic events.

How is the club organized?

Operational policies and procedures for the Upton Men's Club are governed by the Upton Men's Club Constitution. The club constitution defines objectives, membership types and requirements, fees and dues, the election and duty of officers, and defines the structure and frequency of meetings.
