Your attendance is needed as we take the first step toward

like: What’s important to Family members? What hurdles do we need to
overcome? Where do we want to be in five years? Carmen Armistead will be
our facilitator – the meeting will be interesting, engaging and with your
participation, very productive!

Angela House residents will be hosting a bake sale at the February 5th DF
Gathering from 6 - 6:55 p.m. Bake sale proceeds will support fun social
outings. The women came up with this idea so that they could occasionally
have outings like a movie or bowling. These resident-planned outings will
not only allow them to have fun, but will encourage them on their journey
to a productive and sober life. A huge thank you from everyone at Angela
