There’s a New LifeRing Meeting In Napa, CA – And a Great Story Behind It

Showing Up

Sometimes getting a new meeting started requires a little extra boldness and a lotta extra perseverance, and our newest meeting in Napa, California is no exception. 

It starts, of course, with people, and in this case it started with LifeRing’s Board of Directors Chairman and San Jose meetings convenor Byron Kerr, with help from the meeting’s starting convenor, D’Ann G.. Here’s Byron’s story, along with meeting details below:

“Four years ago I drove to Napa, CA on a beautiful autumn day to attend their annual Recovery Faire, sponsored by the Napa County Health and Human Services Department. Upon arriving, I approached the registration table and introduced myself as a LifeRing convenor. I asked permission of the people at the registration table to distribute LifeRing brochures and literature. They gave me permission and even offered me a table for the event. I declined the table stating that I was not prepared for that level of participation.

I entered the Recovery Faire and was enjoying myself introducing LifeRing, sharing literature, and sharing stories when the director of Napa HHS approached me and asked me to stop distributing LifeRing literature. I left the event shortly after.

Thursday night I returned to Napa at the invitation of Napa County HHS to introduce LifeRing to a county sponsored event. I drove four hours in El Niño driven storms and horrendous Bay Area traffic to get there on time. I was met there by D’Ann G. from the Sonoma county LifeRing community who also braved the storm. We conducted an introductory session and convened the first LifeRing meeting in a Napa County facility. This was the same campus where I was asked to stop distributing LifeRing literature four years earlier.

The lesson here is perseverance and tenacity.”

Therefore, we are pleased to announce the following meeting information:

When: Thursdays at 7:00 PM

Where: Napa County Health and Human Services, Alcohol and Drug Services, 2344 Old Sonoma Road, Bldg. C, Napa, California 94559

Convenor: D’Ann G.

Contact Information: Phone: (707) 596-8860, Email: liferingsr@gmail.com

Our heartiest thanks go out to Byron and D’Ann, and we wish this meetings convenor and members all the best!
