Beginning as a meeting only, the Fireside Group of AA was founded by Linda C. in May 1986, at the Crossroads Recovery Center, 2121 Lisenby Ave., Panama City, Florida.
Initially, meetings were held every Wednesday at 8:00 p.m. Early members included Frank H. Tom H., Don N., Bob H., Ferris W., and Annette B.
In June 1986, this meeting became an AA group and was formally registered by the General Service Office of AA on June 13, 1986.
One month later, in July 1986, George and Barbara formed an open Big Book meeting to be held on Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m.
This was followed by the initiation of a Sunday night open speaker meeting to be held at 8:00 p.m. The first speaker at this newly formed group was W. H. from Albany, Georgia.
Many clients of the Crossroads Recovery Center, as well as members of local AA groups, have attended and supported all meetings of the Fireside Group.
