Spring Fling – Big Book Weekend Update

Dear Friend of The Serenity Club,

It gives me great pleasure to personally invite you to join us next weekend for our Second Annual “Spring Fling!” Big Book Weekend with Bob D. (Las Vegas, NV). This will be an exciting and informative weekend for everyone as he takes us all through the “Big Book” of Alcoholics Anonymous at the Holiday Inn Fort Myers Airport at Town Center (Exit 128 from I-75).

In addition, we have scheduled some “Early Bird” and “Night Owl” Open Discussion meetings with topics drawn from the pages of our beloved basic text. We will also have an AA Trivia Contest on Friday night, a Saturday night banquet with special guest speaker Phil H. (Largo, FL), and a DJ Dance later that same evening!

Watch this Video from an attendee from last year:

There is still plenty of space available for this weekend event and for the banquet so I hope you will join us! A registration flyer is attached with this letter for your convenience, and more information can be found on our website at You can also register for the event online and/or click the link provided that will take you to the Holiday Inn’s reservation site if you would like to book a room with them.

Please feel free to call me on my personal cell phone at 239-776-6767239-776-6767 if you have any questions at all. As a past registrant at our Serenity Club conferences, I know you will enjoy reconnecting with other previous event attendees and sharing the fabulous Food, Fun, & Fellowship that we are so famous for!


In Love and Service,

Jerry D. Eddleman
