Every year in June, thousands of recovering alcoholics and their friends and families descend on Akron, Ohio, for the annual Founders' Day celebration.
The three-day event, filled with meetings, entertainment, bus tours and fellowship, commemorates the anniversary of Dr. Bob's last drink and the birth of Alcoholics Anonymous. This year's gathering is June 8, 9 and 10 (visit www.akronaa.orgwww.akronaa.org for more information). See you in Akron!
