Cordial invitation to District 22 Gratitude Dinner, October 12th

Got gratitude? If you are recovering from alcoholism thanks to the Fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous in the Harrisonburg area, that is a rhetorical question: “We are like the passengers of a great liner the moment after rescue from shipwreck when camaraderie, joyousness and democracy pervade the vessel from steerage to captain’s table. There exists among us a fellowship, a friendliness, and an understanding which is indescribably wonderful…”

Everyone is welcome to attend AA District 22’s upcoming Gratitude Dinner. There will be door prizes and abundant food for all. We have a guest speaker, Matt G. from Maryland, who will be telling his story after the dinner at 7:00 pm. Please bring a covered dish or dessert to share. Meats & Drinks will be provided by District 22.

Doors open at 4:45pm at Muhlenberg Lutheran Church (281 East Market St), Harrisonburg, VA. For directions or to add to your personal calendar, visit the event page here: What are you grateful for? How about our new District website?

New Harrisonburg AA Website Rolling Out…
