Demographic Location The first meeting that I attended was an Alcohol Anonymous. The occasion of this meeting was Wednesday Sobriety Celebration that took place at 8 pm at 1311 W. Murray, Visalia Alano Club. Most of the members that showed up to this meeting were Caucasian with few minorities. The gender was mix and it seemed like the number of the males and females were about the same.
Brief Description Initially when I had arrived, I was the first person to walk in, so I had some time to talk to the person in charge. At the beginning of the meeting I got a chance to speak with the wife of a guest speaker and she explained to me how the meeting was going to go. They first read two chapters from a book that was used in this program and everyone was required to have. Then, they had their guess speaker talk about their experience and how it was for him to go through the process which kept him sober for 30 years. After he was done talking, for the rest of the hour people were called on to come up and share their story. However they were asked to share a small part of their story so everyone could get a chance to talk a little and have the opportunity to feel heard. It was interesting how every story was the so different yet everyone could connect to one another.
The second meeting that I attended was an Alcohol Anonymous. The occasion of this meeting was Breath of Fresh Air that took place at 7:30 pm on Thursday at 7046 Pershing Ct. - Functional
