What is the Mountain Gratitude Dinner?
A few 24 hours ago AA members in our area wanted to come up with a way 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!
Since then every year on the first Saturday in November almost 300 sober alcoholics, their families and friends from groups around the area have got together to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, a lot of homemade deserts, old friends and new ones, a great AA speaker and celebrate what we have done together... that we could never have done alone.
To help offset the costs of the event, tickets are sold beginning late September Early October to help pay for the food, facility and decorations. No monies from the sale of tickets or the raffle 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.
