We have tossed around the idea of getting together for New Years Eve and Day and have decided not to gather on New Years Eve but we will get together on new Years Day for a movie and snacks .
New Years Day: January 1st at 1:30 pm at the Clubhouse Movie: Hillbilly Elegy (focus on Addiction and family) followed by discussion. Please bring a snack if you can. We have soda, water, coffee and popcorn. We do not expect a large crowd, however if you think you will attend let us know so that we can change locations if necessary. Maybe we can do more crafts with Char!! Pam B. really is accessing her Girl Scout years to participate in craft activities.
Then on Sunday January 2 we will have our regular 1 pm AA meeting followed by lunch . Please bring a dish to pass if you can. naturally card games to follow and maybe crafts with Char. If anyone wants to volunteer, we have to start organizing and cleaning upstairs too. There are still lots of desserts so come on over and help us finish up the sugar!
Big News: New Meeting starting at the Clubhouse on January 6 Thursdays @ 11:30. The Meeting will be the Living Sober Group and we have ordered 15 Living Sober Books especially for that Meeting. Check it out and thanks Delma W. for getting the group going.

Thanks to everyone who brought a dish to pass, soda, desserts, etc. We had just the right amount of food.
