FRIENDLY SERENITY GROUP
In January 1974, Cliff C., Paul L., and “E.C.” H. put their thoughts and ideas into action and started a Sunday meeting to be held at the Halfway House in Fountain, Florida. The purpose of this meeting was to share the experiences, strengths, and hopes of AA members in District 15 with residents of that halfway house. This gathering was known as the “Halfway House Meeting,” and held its first meetings on Sundays. Early members of this group included Cliff C., Paul L., “E.C.” H., and Joe E.
After a few months, the meeting location was changed to Selma Avenue in Highland Park, Florida, where it stayed until October 1974, when it moved to its present location at 618 North Cove Blvd., Panama City, Florida.
The Halfway House Meeting evolved into an official AA group now known as the “Friendly Serenity Group.” On April 12, 1988, the Friendly Serenity Group was formally registered by the General Service Office of AA.
The Friendly Serenity Group presently meets every Wednesday evening at 8:00 p.m. for an open discussion meeting.
