We meet from 7pm-9pm. There's a bell at the front door to be let in. Once in the building, make a quick left, walk downstairs to conference room # 1. Continuing the meeting will be contingent on meeting our rent payments. We pay $141.00 per meeting. Please make any contributions to the paypal account at or give at the meetings. Attendance is usually 10-15 people with a broad age range. We've all been at the situation of going to a meeting for the first time and not knowing what to expect and feeling apprehension. I can assure you that we are friendly, down to earth people who try to make the experience as beneficial as possible considering the circumstances. Sometimes following the meeting a group of us goes out for a bite to eat should anyone be interested.

The 2019 Schedule: Friday January 11th, Friday February 8th, Friday March 8th, Friday May 10th, Friday June 14th, Friday July 12th, Friday August 9th, Friday September 13th, Friday October 11th, Friday November 8th,Friday December 13th. For more information write to
