Atons February Monthly Meeting

The Atons hold monthly meetings to discuss and plan upcoming activities, and to socialize with each other and our guests. We welcome all members, associates, and community members to attend and participate in these conversations with us.

The full members have a closed meeting from 4:30 until 5:15 to discuss any private membership issues. Guests are welcome to arrive at 5:15. The open meeting starts at 5:30 and typically lasts about an hour.

A social potluck dinner follows the open meeting. Everyone is encouraged to bring something to share.

If you’d like to attend and need the address, please send us a message on Facebook, or an email to

Following the dinner and officer installations, we welcomed two new honorary lifetime associates, Vicki K. and David C. We presented the 2018 Associate of the Year award to Cali P, and the 2018 Friends of the Atons to The Knights of Leather.

We created a new award this year to continue Sam Carlisle’s legacy of working to build our communities. The first Sam Carlisle Torch Award was presented to the Twin Cities Cavern Dwellers.

Following the awards, 2019 President Andrew surprised 2018 President Randy with one extra gift, a bust of Anubis, to show our appreciation for the three years that Randy served as president.
