Sobriety Celebration 2014
The Sobriety Celebration on November 27, 2014 was a resounding success as we gathered together to celebrate those in our community who have achieved sobriety over this past year and to inspire those who are working towards sobriety.
With over 60 people attending, we heard from Gertrude Johnny (aka Trudy) who shared her heart felt story of recovery. She was gifted with the community’s wishes for her continued success on her one year anniversary!
Patrick Alec, our next guest speaker, spoke with humor and wisdom about his struggle with alcoholism and his four year of living a sober life style.
Emmy Manson spoke wise words that brought many of us to tears and Wayne Johnny completed the evening by giving out “Certificates of Sobriety” to honor member’s strength, honesty and responsibility for their clean and sober life style.
A variety of door prizes were given out as the evening came to a close.
The Health Center Team wishes everyone a happy holiday and Successful New Year!
