Petosky, Michigan, LifeRing Group Shows How It’s Done

A LifeRing meeting in a small Michigan town shows how it’s done when it comes to getting a little publicity. Petoskey, MI, population 5,700, has a pretty new LifeRing meeting and now is much better known in the community. An article in the Petoskey News highlights the new meeting and even has “LifeRing” in the headline. See the article here.

Looking to start LR on Florida’s “space coast”

Dale B. is looking to get Lifering started on the “Space Coast” area of east central Florida, which includes Orlando and the area directly east of it. Here’s his regional Lifering website, already set up. If you live in the area, or know someone who does, please alert them.

New LifeRing Meetings: Here, There and Everywhere!

Search For SolutionAt least four new LifeRing meetings have started in the past few weeks. I say “at least” because I’ve been less than diligent in keeping track. But I’m sure of new meetings in Petoskeym, MI; Hot Sulphur Springs, CO (this is a closed meeting in the county jail); Oceanside, CA, and Belfast, Northern Ireland. For information about the time and place for these meetings, go Here.

In addition to these, we’re working to start new meetings in at least five other locations soon, from Hawaii to North Carolina. LifeRing’s growth continues its steady pace.

 

Nothing Like a Little Good Publicty …

tabernashDick Sprague, a LifeRing Convenor in Tabernash (Grand County), CO, provided information for an article in SkyHiNews “serving Winter Park, Granby, and Grand County, CO.” The article can be read in full by clicking Here.

Sprague is mentioned in the article and provided most or all of the information for it. Here’s a sample: “LifeRing seeks to build off other’s experiences to help people create a tailored recovery program, or as Dick Sprague, the man who has been convening the meetings locally and is an advocate for the group, puts it: “It gives you arrows to put in your quiver.”

Sprague went on to say, “All personalities have differences, and different things work for different people …”

The Tabernash meeting is weekly on Thursdays at 7 p.m. at The Church of the Eternal Hills. More details are available at the LifeRing Colorado website.
