Back before Facebook and Internet forums, people used to go out in public and congregate. If you do that in real public places often enough, you soon
find there is a certain percentage of people with whom you'd prefer to not associate even at your favorite hangout. So you join a club, where the
association can be a little more selective, and if someone's a real pain, you can exclude them.
So you get together and have meetings and decide to do fund raisers and whatnot for community causes, and also get hammered on cheap booze.
