AA OPEN MEETING – The Tarbert Group of Alcoholics Anonymous, We are beginning our 21st year with an Open Meeting in the Tarbert Community Centre on Saturday 14th January 2023 at 8pm – Everybody Welcome. Open meetings seek to reach the suffering alcoholic through a third party and will very often be attended by a group of Doctors, Nurses, Social Workers, Teachers, Prison Officers, Gardai, Spiritual Advisors, Public Media etc. These people in their daily work are frequently in contact with the suffering alcoholic and by their very presence at our meeting have shown their concern and willingness to help from the earliest beginnings of AA when Henrietta Sieberling introduced Dr. Bob to Bill W. Many thousands of alcoholics who found sobriety in AA, were first put in contact with AA by a non-alcoholic third party, be it a family member or a concerned friend /employer etc. These good friends of AA knew AA existed, where it could be found and what help AA offered to the problem drinker.
