In 2018, we mark the 30th Anniversary of our founding as a nonprofit organization, dedicated as a living memorial to Bill W., and to carrying his spiritual mission to the next generation. To celebrate the occasion we are planning a number of special events to coincide with Founder’s Day in June.

Mark your calendars and join us here in East Dorset this spring!
