Fall Retreat on Petit Jean Mountain Posted on August 24, 2022 by admin Greetings from your Central Arkansas OA Intergroup!It has been decided that we will have our Fall Retreat, “SHINING A LIGHT ON RECOVERY” on Saturday, November 19th from 9:00am to 5:00pm. The one-day retreat will be held on Petit Jean Mountain at Canterbury Lodge which is part of Camp Mitchell Episcopal Camp. It is approximately an hours drive from Little Rock.If you have not been here, it is a beautiful setting of serenity, and the Fall colors should be at their peak at this time. The Lodge is very nice, with a complete kitchen if you need to prepare your food. The scenery is amazing, and will offer us a wonderful place to relax, spend time outdoors (weather permitting), and get to SHINE A LIGHT ON RECOVERY, with Steps 10, 11, and 12. We will also have a special Candle-lighting ceremony at the end of the day that you do not want to miss! We will hopefully be able to do this virtually as well.The cost for the day will be $20 per person, and since the lodge also has 5 bedrooms available, if anyone would like to spend the night on Saturday, the separate cost will be $20 pp, with linens and towels furnished, and check out time is 11:00am Sunday. If you would like to spend Saturday night, and wish to room with someone else, you must specify who will be sharing a room, and you can pay on that Saturday.We MUST have committed number no later than July 31st, because if we do not have at least 6 people attending, we will have to cancel the reservation. Our Intergroup decided that each person should bring their own food for the day, but you will have access to the kitchen, if needed.There is a very nice restaurant at Mather Lodge (inside the park), and our lunch break will be an hour and a half so you can eat there if you like. They have a good salad bar, and meals are reasonable. There is also a Coffeehouse and an Outpost in the park as well.Please contact Kathy at firstname.lastname@example.org or 501-590-2515 if you have any other questions. We truly hope that this will be a time for each of us to strengthen our recovery both individually AND as a group, so please mark your calendars and plan to join us!
