(#834) Bill W (Bedford Hills, NY)
June 1956 in Akron, OH  EVENT: Founders Day  TYPE: AA, Male, Story, Historical, Author

Starting with short talks by two long timers from Akron - Ethyl M - author of "From Farm to City" (2nd and 3rd Big Book editions) - and Warren G.

Bill takes time to remember Dr. Bob and how he might assess his role in the founding of AA. He quotes from an as yet unpublished book he was writing at the time, AA Comes of Age, on the theme of thanksgiving and gratitude.

Bill relates how AA was just beginning in 1956 to start groups in East Asia and then goes back to the beginnings of AA to trace how it got from there to here to get a toe hold in Asia.

Classic Bill and a message that still holds true today.
