A few years after the picture Edition was started by Warren L., we moved to an annex building that was acquired by the First Methodist Church in Elberton that had been a Masonic Lodge and later the city library. We met every Monday at 7:30 p.m. Early members included Warren L, Larry M, Harry C, Susan R, Elizabeth T, Barbara M, Jim F, Paula S and Andy C. It was much larger and had parking close by with our AA sign in the window so people would know where we were meeting. It had a kitchen and restroom and another large room that could be used for special events. We were very happy with the new facility and grateful to the church for letting us meet there.
In 2013, it came to our attention that the original AA Clubhouse in town was probably going to revert back to the foundation that loaned it to AA, as the meetings there were not large enough to sustain its expenses. We were asked to perhaps move our meetings there so we could help support it. A group conscience meeting was held on August 14th, 2013 where the vote was twelve to two in favor of moving to the original location in support of the clubhouse. The date of September 2nd, 2013 was decided on for the move. Work was begun fixing up the clubhouse as it had sunk into disrepair. We now have meetings Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 12:15pm to 1pm, Tuesday and Thursday at 5:45pm. and Saturday Mornings at 10:00am.
