We’re Moving!

For several years Group #1 members have been looking for a different building that would work for meetings. Most recently we approached ODAT about the possibility of resuming a search again, and they agreed.

A new location was found and ODAT made an offer which was accepted by the seller. The building is the current Vivette’s Dance Studio located at 1102 Armory Rd. ODAT will close on the property approximately April 1 and will take possession on June 15. Vivette’s will continue having classes there until then. Our current location will be listed for sale by ODAT in the near future.

The building is fully accessible and two accessible bathrooms. There are two large rooms for meetings, a large lobby area, an office, and numerous storage rooms. One of the rooms can be converted to a kitchen. There are a few parking spaces in front of the building with additional street parking available.

For more information, come to Group 1 business meetings the first Saturday of every month at 11:15am.

If drinking has become a problem in your life and you want to stop, you CAN — and we can help. All Group 1 A.A. meetings are open* unless otherwise specified and all meetings last about an hour. If you show up a few minutes early and introduce yourself, we can help you feel comfortable and can answer some of your questions. A.A. literature, as well as our Big Book (formally known as Alcoholics Anonymous), are available at meetings.

*Open meetings are available to anyone interested in Alcoholics Anonymous’ program of recovery from alcoholism. Nonalcoholics may attend open meetings as observers.

 Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is the desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
