March 10 to 17, 2011

The Bellaire Club is waiting to hear from the landlord at 5455 Dashwood about a new home for the club. At a special meeting of the Board of Trustees, there was a unanimous vote to pursue that property as the club’s new meeting place. The new place is right around the corner from Chimney Rock and Dashwood, which would put us back in Bellaire. Stay tuned for further details!


We’ve got until March 31 in our present location, so don’t forget to put your name, your number of years of sobriety and the meeting where you plan to celebrate on the big white board in the meeting room. Birthdays are celebrated at the last meeting(s) of the month. A great way to honor celebrants is to make a donation to the club in their honor. Gift cards are always available at the coffee bar.


Rebecca S. will lead the Friday $2 meeting, with Arch serving as chair. Be sure to stop by for some good old fashioned sobriety and fellowship.

Jeff T., who is chairing this month’s Sunday Noon meetings, has asked Andy G. to lead this week.
