FREEDOM GROUP

Sometime in the mid-1960s (the exact date is unknown), it was recognized that there was a group of alcoholics in dire need of an introduction to a better, sober way of life if they were to become useful assets to their community in the future.

This group was the incarcerated population of the Community Correctional Center on Highway 390 in Panama City, Florida. A well-known Panama City lawyer, by the name of E. Ward H., received permission from the Florida Department of Corrections to form an AA group for the Community Correctional Center. Paul A. soon became the guiding force of this fledgling group.

For the first several years, inmates attended weekly outside AA meetings in the Panama Area. These meeting locations were later changed to inside meetings in the Community Correctional Center itself.

The concept behind these meetings was to get inmates introduced to the AA way of life and to the outside world of freedom. Many former inmates remain sober today and are active in the AA way of life.

On January 24, 1978, the Freedom Group of AA was formally registered by the General Service Office of AA

Current meetings of the Freedom Group follow:

MONDAY, 8:00 p.m. -Closed Meeting (Meets at the
Community Corrections Center)

WEDNESDAY, 8:00 p.m. -Open Speaker Meeting (Meets out-
side at the Serenity House,
