THE NOONERS GROUP

By December of 1973, several AA members in the Panama City, Florida area found themselves unable to regularly attend an evening AA meeting. This problem was caused by a number of reasons, the most prevailing being work commitments.

In order to provide everyone with an opportunity to meet, two members of other AA groups in the area came up with an idea to form an AA group which would meet at 12:00 noon instead of the normal evening time. It was from this idea that the name "Nooners" came.

And so it was that Jack H. and Joe W. founded The Nooners Group of AA This new group held its first meeting on the 5th of December, 1973, in the facilities of the Forest Park United Methodist Church at the corner of 23rd street and Lisenby Avenue in Panama City, Florida. The Nooners Group continues to meet at this location.

The first meetings of The Nooners Group were held every Wednesday at 12:00 noon. Membership in this group grew and eventually, meeting days were expanded to Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. The need for a closed discussion meeting for women AA members was recognized, and Monday noon meetings were later set aside for them.

On February 5, 1974, The Nooners Group of AA was formally registered by the General Service Office of AA.

The first General Service Representative of The Nooners Group was Jack H. Others who served as GSR for this group included Ray B., Nell W., Bo S., and Tom B.

Current meetings of The Nooners Group follow:

MONDAY, 12:00 Noon
Closed Discussion Meeting (Women Only)

WEDNESDAY, 12:00 Noon
Closed Discussion Meeting

FRIDAY, 12:00 Noon
