What is the Mountain Gratitude Dinner?
What is the Mountain Gratitude Dinner? A few 24 hours ago AA members in our area got together and wanted to come up with a way for the members to enjoy the Fellowship of AA that bonds us so closely together. They decided to have a dinner, invite a speaker and have some fun!
It was decided that every year on the first Saturday in November they would get together to see old friends from groups around the area, enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, a lot of homemade deserts, seeing old friends and making new ones topped off with a great AA speaker. That was 11 years ago and ever since almost 300 sober alcoholics, their families and friends have joined together to celebrate what we have done together that we could never have done alone.
Over the years a few things have changed but the basic idea is still to enjoy the Fellowship of the Spirit that is AA. We hope you will join us, the First Saturday in November each year for the Annual Mountain Gratitude Dinner.
To offset the costs of the event, tickets are sold beginning late September Early October each year to help pay for the food, facility and decorations. No monies from the sale of tickets, the raffle or the sale of CDs goes to any particular group. All funds over and above operating costs are sent to AA World Services as our way of expressing Gratitude for all the service they provide to Alcoholics Anonymous. You can purchase your tickets online HERE or from any of the local groups in the Blairsville, Blue Ridge, Hiawassee Georgia and Murphy North Carolina meetings when they become available.
