1911 Club LLC
In 1959, the Council organized the 1911 Club, a LLC corporation whose function was (and is) to provide and manage a meeting facility for the Council. A hall was rented at 52 St. Charles Road, Villa Park and served as a home base.
In 1963 (April) a fire destroyed that building and the Council met at the Odd Fellows Hall in Elmhurst.  Later that year, the property at 537 - 539 S York Street was purchased and has been the home of Fr. McDonald Council #1911 for over 50 years.

Over the years the hall has been uitilzed for Council #1911 business meetings as well as offered at no or low cost to many organizations. In 2017, the Hall's doors were opened to over 30 local non profit organizations for over 100 events. 

The 1911 Club has it's own set of
by-laws (similar to Council #1911).  As directed, the 1911 Club has Officers (that deal with day to day operation) as well as a Board of Directors that help provide long term guidance of the Hall.
