The oldest LifeRing meeting on the West Coast, the Thursday night meeting at Mandana House in Oakland, has lost its venue. The Mandana Community Recovery Center is a victim of budget cutbacks and has closed its doors. Dozens of community meetings are homeless. For news coverage, see here and here.  Anyone with a lead to a new home for the Thursday night LifeRing, please contact the LifeRing Service Center 1-800-811-4142 or email
