Construction work is proceeding rapidly in the renovation of our permanent new home, at 5625 A Beechnut, where Larry A. and crew have completed demolition and most electrical work in the spacious new quarters. New walls are up for our two meeting rooms, a lounge or “Half Measures” room, and lobby area. The work might even be finished by the end of this month! Look forward to more news about a grand opening soon!

Meanwhile, activity continues to pick up at our temporary location at 5653 Beechnut, where a new Sunday meeting will start at 8 p.m. Led by Kellen C., the meeting will be a Big Book/12 Step meeting.

And, set aside some time to hear a great speaker, Kelly C., at the Saturday speaker meeting, at 6:30 p.m. Jonathan is chairing that meeting.

Margaret D. is chairing the Friday $2 meeting, at 12:15 p.m., and Anne Marie K. will be this week’s leader.
