Brady AA to mark 60th with birthday celebration

A birthday celebration of a different kind is gearing up to honor an organization for the help it has offered the Brady community for the past 60 years. Beginning tonight (Friday) at 6 p.m, Brady’s Alcoholics Anonymous is planning a celebration to recognize 60 years of service to McCulloch County. The celebration will be held at the Heart of Texas Hope House located at 1303 North Walnut. The general public is invited to attend and help celebrate. ‘The party begins at 6 p.m. with registration and hospitality. At 7:30, the history of Alcoholics Anonymous in McCulloch County will be given, followed by a guest speaker,’ said a spokesperson. ‘On Saturday, registration and hospitality begins at 8 a.m. with speakers at 10:30 and 11:45, followed by a luncheon meal. After lunch will be horseshoe and washer pitching contests, plus a closing speaker Saturday evening at 8 p.m. There is no fee to register, and the meal is by donation only, so come join the celebration.’ On Aug.11, 1947, a group of men in Brady felt the need to become a part of the greater fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous and formed the local group. Some will know this group as Brady AA. Others in the community may have found a better way of living by walking through the doors of AA. “Whether you know about Brady AA or have never heard of it, it has been present in this community for 60 years and a celebration is taking place. All meetings this weekend are ‘open meetings,’ and the public is invited to come and hear speakers share their experience, strength and hope in recovery.”
