History

Welcome to the Mainliner Club 


In 1939, William A (Pat) Patterson, then President and founder of United Airlines, asked Zay Smith to organize a company picnic and a Christmas dance. Zay enlisted a few of his fellow employees, and the social club they formed became the Mainliner Club. As United's route system expanded, so did the network of Mainliner Clubs. Their purpose now, as was then, is primarily to serve the social and recreational needs of United employees and their families. To that end, Clubs plan, organize and conduct or sponsor sports events, dinner dances, summer picnics, group outings and so forth. ....Beyond the enjoyment these activities bring to Club members, they inevitably lead to heightened feelings of camaraderie among employees and of community among Clubs.

Just in case you were wondering the Denver club has been active for over 60 years!
