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: email@example.com (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!)
Summer Break — The Friday afternoon meeting in East Haven will be on hiatus for five weeks starting June 30, 2017. We will return Friday, August 4th. Hope to see you on June 16 and June 23 at Hagaman Memorial Library in the Demayo Room starting at 1:15 PM (approx.).
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.
Mark just joined the facilitator team and will be taking over the Wednesday night meetings at the Grove in New Haven.
The Wilson Branch of the New Haven Free Public Library will be closed on Saturday, May 27, 2017 to mark Memorial Day. We therefore will be unable to hold our regular Saturday morning meeting that day. Enjoy the weekend!
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.
Our Friday morning meeting at the Hagaman Memorial Library in East Haven will change to a weekly meeting starting Friday, November 18. The time will change to 1:00 PM. The meeting will end at 2:15 PM.
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.
We just realized that the Wilson Branch of the New Haven Free Public Library will be closed in observance of Veterans’ Day on Saturday, November 12, so we will not be able to hold our usual Saturday morning meeting.
We’re very pleased to restart meeting at the Hagaman Memorial Library, 227 Main Street, East Haven, CT 06512
SMART Recovery Connecticut’s founding facilitator, Joe Esposito (CASAC-T), will be running the meeting from 10:15 AM to 11:45 AM on alternating Friday mornings. Please check our meetup site or the main SMART Recovery local meetings listing for exact dates.
We greatly appreciate the continued support of the Hagaman Memorial Library.
