Lynn Haven, Florida
LYNN HAVEN GROUP
membership in Alcoholics Anonymous grew within District
15, meeting facilities became overcrowded. AA members in
the outlying areas of central Panama City and Panama City
Beach were still finding it difficult to get to a meeting.
They certainly did not want to give up their much needed
meetings in order to maintain their sobriety.
this in mind, Pat C. and Linda C. decided it was time to
form another AA group in Lynn Haven, Florida. The first
meeting of this new group, called the "Lynn Haven Group"
of Alcoholics Anonymous, was held in the old Coaches Corner
building in April, 1985. Early members included Pat C.,
Linda C., Judy, Albert, and Brinda N.
Lynn Haven Group made an early move from the old Coaches
Corner building to the Lynn Haven City Commission Room.
The group continued to meet at this new location for some
time with rather unique meetings held every Thursday night
-unique in that the group held a 45 minute speaker meeting
followed by a 45 minute discussion meeting.
membership in this new group grew, it became evident that
additional meetings were needed. Thus it was that George
and Barbara B. formed a Sunday night open discussion meeting.
The regular Thursday night meeting continued.
June 13, 1985, The Lynn Haven Group of AA was formally registered
by the General Service Office of AA.
January, 1989, the City of Lynn Haven renovated its City
Commission rooms. This action made it necessary for the
Lynn Haven Group to move to other meeting facilities. The
group obtained permission to meet at the First Presbyterian
Church at the corner of 9th Street and Georgia Avenue in
Lynn Haven. The group continues to meet at this location.
Meetings of the Lynn Haven Group follow:
Open Discussion Meeting (No Smoking)
