More Muhlenberg fallout? AA group disbands after 59 years

The Alcoholics Anonymous logo.

Is Plainfield suffering more fallout from the Muhlenberg Hospital closing?

Plainfield Today reader and Restore Muhlenberg activist Deborah Dowe relayed the following information in an email Wednesday evening --

...I remember when the Plainfield AA group was no longer allowed to meet at Muhlenberg but just heard that after relocating to Front Street, things were never the same and the group is disbanding after 59 years ... It is interesting that I learned this from a white woman, visiting Plainfield, who felt she had a need for a meeting...
Although this is not the only AA group in Plainfield (I know of a Latino meeting), it is sad to learn of the meeting's demise, and one has to wonder if losing its meeting space at Muhlenberg had a deleterious effect.

People shouldn't be so quick to jump to conclusions! There are AA meetings in Plainfield every evening and one on Sunday mornings as well. It's true that the Sunday evening meeting has only a few active members (those who do the work) but I have heard there is another group looking for a home that may get involved with the Sunday evening meeting. Let us hope!
