The new LifeRing at St. Cloud Regional Medical Center in St. Cloud, FL, starts this Wednesday, July 7.  Founding convenor Dale K. writes:

“Here we go!
The new meeting starts Wednesday evening, and I am suffering from the jitters.  I have prepared as best as I know how; read the text, got the kit, went to a Tampa meeting, printed the appropriate forms and flyers, advertised the meeting, made lots of personal contacts, and generally went nuts. Now, I have a lot of personal (not monetary) investment in this, and want it to succeed badly. I guess that I am feeling what everyone has gone through that has organized a new meeting. I am prepared (sort of) to meet with myself, but I sure would like to see the room full of addicts seeking recovery.
Wish me luck!”

The meeting starts at 7:30 pm in the Board Room of the medical center (see map).   Good luck, Dale!  — Marty N.

    Here is the first edition of our newsletter. I will not be posting subsequent newsletters; just thought someone might like to consider using this tool in their group.

    Hello everyone,

    This is the first of what will hopefully be a weekly newsletter for the restricted list of LRSC members.
    Thank you all for coming, and we look forward to seeing you next week. Please help us to grow by bringing someone with you if you can. Also, try to bring a topic that you want to discuss. I will be showing a brief tour of the LifeRing home website.
    I want to welcome all of you, and to give you each a job!
    Remember the things you did in the past week to stay sober, and plan for next week if you expect any challenges to your recovery.
    Let’s give a special welcome to Bob K. who is joining our group from his deployment to Afghanistan. Stay safe, Bob!

    Stay joyous and free,
    Dale
