East Haven – Help Needed

Hi there we are looking for host/facilitator coverage for the month of August for the Friday afternoon meeting in East Haven.  If you are able to assist, please let me know: joe@smartrecoveryct.org (I’m having some health issues which are expected to continue a little longer than expected which is why I am asking for help. Thanks!)

A visit to the new Thursday night meeting in Hartford

A new meeting on Thursday nights in Hartford started in mid-May, and Carol and I went up to say hello last Thursday. It’s in the Mt. Sinai rehabilitation hospital at 500 Blue Hills Avenue in the north end of Hartford. There’s free parking in the visitor lot across Blue Hills Avenue from the hospital, and a crosswalk to get to the main entrance. The security desk can direct you to the meeting. It will probably be downstairs in Pulmonary Conference Room A. This was a little hard to find as there were notices taped up over room names. There was a busy civic association meeting going on in the main auditorium just down the hall.

We had a very nice, brightly lit, private room, and a motivated meeting host. Thanks to the hospital for providing the space. We should see the meeting grow as we get the word out.

There’s also a Tuesday night meeting at CCAR.

First snow cancellation of the season

We decided to cancel our Saturday morning meeting at the Wilson Branch Library as it looks dangerous for the facilitators to try to drive to the library. We expect that most of the attendees will have more sense than to try to get to the meeting anyway, and there’s a chance that the New Haven Free Public Library system will decide to open late.

The library will be closed for the next two Saturdays, so the next Saturday morning meeting will be on January 7. The Hagaman Public Library in East Haven will also be closing for the holidays, so our Friday morning meetings on 12/23 and 12/30 are cancelled. Our other four weekly meetings in the New Haven area will be operating as usual.

NEW meeting in Hamden on Thursday evenings!

Beginning 17 November 2016 there will be a SMART Recovery meeting Thursday evenings at 6:00 at the Whitneyville Cultural Commons.  WCC is the historic brick building located at 1253 Whitney Ave.  To find the meeting room, enter the main entrance and climb one set of stairs to the second floor balcony, toward the back of the building.  There is ample free parking to the left of the building and between it and Lake Whitney.
