The 41st Annual Connecticut Al-Anon Family Groups Convention will be held March 23 to March 25, 2018 at the Radisson Hotel, 100 Berlin Road, Cromwell CT.
Al-Anon Family Groups is a fellowship of parents, spouses, siblings, adult children, and friends of a person who has a drinking problem. Al-Anon Family Groups have been offering strength and support to families and friends of problem drinkers since 1951.
The weekend convention offers meetings, workshops, and entertainment on a variety of topics related to recovery from the effects of a loved one’s alcohol use. There is also a banquet* and dance on Saturday evening. The event includes participation by AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) and Alateen, a fellowship of young Al-Anon members, usually teenagers, whose lives have been affected by someone else’s drinking.
Spanish interpreters, hard of hearing headsets, and American Sign Language interpreters will be available.
Pre-registration form, found on the Al-anon website, is available until March 8th for $25 for Adults/$5forteens. Register online at:
Walk-in registration is $30.00 for adults and $5.00 for teens and covers the cost of the entire event. (*There is an additional charge for the banquet.)
The convention opens Friday, March 23 at 3:00 PM. On Saturday and Sunday, sessions begin at 8:30 AM. The convention closes on Sunday, March 25 at 12:00 noon.
