Our new permanent home at 5625 A Beechnut is all but finished: Arch and crew will start the decorative painting this week, leading up to our move and grand reopening.

But, we still need funds to build out the coffee bar! It’s time to dig really deep and make a contribution so that the kitchen area matches the rest of the new digs, which are fabulous. We will be passing baskets asking for contributions to the new cocina, but you can make a contribution at any time. Just put your donation in an envelope, and please write your name and “kitchen fund” on it. Drop it off at our temporary location at 7653 Beechnut.

If you can help with the decorative painting, do not hesitate to contact Arch after a meeting, or by e-mail at arch8@sbcglobal. There’s lots of work to be done, and it will be fun working on the bright and cheerful motif.


There will be lots of celebrating this week, and here’s a list of celebrants:

  • 12X12: Lawauna S., 5 years
  • Friday: Cathy B., 9 years and Bill L., 12 years
  • Women’s ER: Eleanor G., 8 years; Dee C., 22 years and Ann N., 25 years
  • Sunday Noon: David D., 18 years and Ann N., 25 years

A great way to honor these celebrants’ milestones of sobriety is to make a contribution to the Bellaire Club in their honor. Gift cards are available at the coffee bar.
