Alano Karaoke and Corned Beef and Cabbage, March 8

The Unity Committee of Alano is again sponsoring a Karaoke night at 401 S. 11th.

On March 8, 2014, at 9:30 PM (after the 8:00 Speakers Meeting) we will provide corned beef and cabbage and potatoes.  St. Patrick’s day is in March – thus the theme for the food.

Karaoke has been a regular practice at the Alano for months – It is generally held on the second Saturday of the month.

We have experimented with a cover charge and with a goodwill basket.  The goodwill basket has not produced much to offset the cost of the event.  A cover charge has generated money but we fear has limited the participation.  In order to serve our  mission and to provide recovery community opportunities we are setting the cost for this event at $2.00 for members and $3.00 for non-members.  The Karaoke events are not fundraisers.  We hope only to minimize the out-of-pocket expense for Alano.

We continually see the best mix of sponsoring recovery community events with costs.  We believe that socializing in a recovery community adds value to recovery.

Thanksgiving Dinner

     Alano hosts an annual Thanksgiving Dinner.  A person does not have to be a member of Alano to enjoy our annual festival of good food, warm friends, and the serenity of recovery.

WHEN:     Our dinner is traditionally held at 2:00 PM on Thanksgiving day

WHERE:  401 South 11th Street, St. Joseph, Missouri
Generally, Alano will supply the turkey or ham.  Other than the meat dish the dinner is pot luck.  We are always grateful for the many donations.  The spirit of service to others is a central ingredient to a healthy recovery.

Thank you to all who participate.

Donations are accepted
