A note from my highchair... Recovery is in the air and it smells like Alano Club coffee.

Independence day, July 4th, was a day that many Happy, Joyous and Free individuals celebrated on Riverside drive at the Elgin Alano Club picnic. 

This was the third year of watching the fireworks over the Riverboat from the front of our club. It was also the beginning of the new membership year.  The locks were changed and the old keys will no longer work. 

Some of the first time attendees expressed their approval of the event and also the club itself.   A few even stayed around for the 10pm meeting.  It is our hope that these events provide joy and entertainment for all.

Speaking of the late night meetings, there have been some changes and now the Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday meetings are growing.  If you find yourself out on a hot summer night, down by the river, stop by and cop some serenity.  

Watch for more fun things to do at the Elgin Alano Club throughout the year. 

Love and Service. 
- Jim H

Weekly Meeting Schedule
"Recovery is something like the restoration of a very old painting, covered over by layers and layers of darkening, distorted varnish ... Not all of the underlying pattern can be revealed at one time. What is uncovered, bit by bit and layer by slow, careful layer, are the things which are necessary and appropriate for me to know about myself right now."

"An Indescribable Benevolence," Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, August 1992 Step By Step
