There is a great dynamic that occurs when groups of alcoholics and addicts are able to start new groups and develop their own identity within the fellowship where bonds can become stronger, and individuals can find a room that feels like home. Austin Galano Club is grateful for our role we get to play in this effort by lowering the barriers for new groups to start, and providing space or meetings and social activities to take place. Because of this relative ease, however, some groups naturally take off, and others never quite make it, but the fellowship as a whole grows stronger.
Take a minute, quite regularly if you can, and check out the meeting calendar resources available to you in the building (hard copy) and via the website here.
A new group will be starting to meet here at AGC May 2nd, in fact, known as Paint It Black, a Heroin Anonymous meeting. Be sure to welcome new folks you see and help them with finding the coffee bar and meeting rooms. They will be meeting at 8:00 PM in the Medium Room down the hall.
As well, Awakenings, an Atheist/Agnostic/Freethinker AA group has started meeting Mon/Wed/Fri at 7:30 AM. What a great way to start the day.
Be on the lookout for some additional calendar changes coming June 1. There will be some schedule shuffling going on, some meetings going away, some starting, some moving, that you will want to be aware of.
