I have been going to the Club since Clark Street and even started a NA meeting when the Club first moved to Lake Avenue. Congratulations and hats off to the amazing committee for decorating the club, painting and improving the looks of the club, creating a new website, serving delicious food, having a great DJ, and for just simply letting me be a part of something that is bigger than me. My recovery today is having a safe place for me to go to that encourages and celebrates the miracle of what the 12 steps do for people every day. Like the club in 2020, my recovery is evolving and getting better every year. It is amazing who you meet and become friends with during this journey and new way of life and thinking along the way. I am proud that the recovery scene in Pueblo has something to be proud of that actually makes a difference in many people's lives. Even during below zero temperatures and a Colorado winter snow storm numerous fellowship members showed up and suited up to make the Valentines Day speaker meeting Mexican buffet a real success. One of the Serenity run people from Colorado Springs even payed my entrance fee of $10 to get into the event! Another example of my HP working miracles in my life! A humble thanks to the organizers and volunteers for keeping me sober another day and allowing me to know that there is always a safe place for me to go to socialize and continually work on my recovery throughout the year. A huge part of my recovery is writing and keeping a journal-inventory about what is going bad and good in my life currently. This email is a healthy way for me to express my gratitude and experience the grace my HP has shown me during the last decade.
Saludes...I have attended the 3 Point Club for a few years and have been grateful for those members who have held up the fort in order to keep the Club doors open. A perfect example, for instance, was when many AA meeting venues in the city of Pueblo closed their doors during the pandemic, the 3 Point Club remained open as an "essential" facility for us in recovery. The Club's decision to remain open spoke volumes of why it was important to keep its doors open. Many of us in the fellowship were sincerely grateful for the ongoing meetings and events at the Club following the abnormal shutdown in our country. Many of us in recovery know all too well the danger of what isolation can do to us, so having in-person meetings was crucial for our recovery. For this reason, I am thankful for the 3 Point Club. Last but not least, I appreciate the numerous Club improvements that have been made in the last few years. And more recently, the addition of the new furnace and much-needed central air installation this summer (2021) was a major plus! As we often say in the rooms of AA, "recovery is more than just putting the cork in the jug," a recovery Club should reflect an appealing and most important, a safe environment. The 3 Point Club reflects these ideals for me. Come and see for yourselves, we'll leave the light on for you.
Grateful, One Day at Time.
