New Meeting in Los Angeles Starts 3/24!


We couldn’t be more excited to tell you about the very first LifeRing Los Angeles, California starting next Saturday, March 24, on Sunset Boulevard in the Silver Lake neighborhood! As is often the case, meeting convenor Chris needed a LifeRing meeting to go to in his area, but since there aren’t any (until now), he decided to start his own! WTG, Chris!

Here’s all the meeting information:

When:  Saturdays 1:30 – 2:30 PM, beginning March 24th

Where: Cafe Tropical, 2900 W. Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90026

Additional Meeting Place Info.: Cafe Tropical is on the corner of Sunset and Parkman Avenue, but the private meeting space has its own separate entrance on the Parkman Ave. side.

Street parking only.

No outside food or drink is allowed but wonderful Cuban coffee, sandwiches, and pastries are available for purchase from the Cafe if you’d like – not required!

Convenor: Chris S.

New Meeting in Port Angeles, WA Starts 2/1!

It’s always exciting to announce new LifeRing meetings, but if we do say so ourselves this one’s a little extra special  because it’s been started by our very own Craig Whalley! A little back story, for those of you who aren’t familiar…

After being a longtime member of LifeRing, which has included founding and moderating the LSRSafe e-mail group, moving to and living in Berkeley, California in retirement from running his bookstore in Port Angeles, Washington to be closer to the action in our Oakland office, where he spent lots of time doing any/everything asked of him – including helping lots of other people start meetings, being a leader and member of our Board of Directors, convening a meeting in Oakland, and so on and so forth – Craig decided recently to move back to his hometown of Port Angeles on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula to begin Phase 2 of his retirement…which he thought might include slowing down a little.

Little did he know he had a built-in meeting waiting for him when he got there made up of a group of friends and contacts he’d made remotely during his time in Berkeley, and voila! It’s been so successful he decided it was time to make it official, and lo – the new Port Angeles meeting has been born, and begins tonight, 2/1!

Here are all the meeting details:

When: Thursdays at 7:00 PM

Where: Olympic Medical Center, Wendel Room (in basement), 939 Caroline Street, Port Angeles, WA 98362

Convenor Contact Info.: E-mail Craig at


We wish Craig and all new meeting members our very best!

New Meeting in St. Paul, Alberta Starts This Thursday!


We’ve got a slew of meeting information headed in your direction this, and we’d like to begin by announcing a new meeting in St. Paul, Alberta – the first LifeRing meeting outside of British Columbia! 

Sober for close to two years, Jo started out in AA but has been attending some of our online meetings, and since she has enough people she knows in her local area to start her own face-to-face meeting, she’s decided to give it a try!

The meetings are on Thursday evenings at 7:15 PM – the first one will be this Thursday, February 1st. If you’d like to join in, for more information please call Jo at (780) 991-3285.

We wish Jo and all her meeting members our very best!
