Man's Triumvirate

Symbolizing the unity of A.A., over 2,500 members of the fellowship and their friends from 36 states, two Canadian provinces, and Mexico gathered in Cleveland's Music Hall on June 10 to commemorate and pay tribute to Bill W. and Dr. Bob on the 10th anniversary of the founding of the movement.

Held under the sponsorship of Greater Cleveland's 44 groups, the near-capacity Music Hall audience heard Bill and Dr. Bob characterize the gathering as an unprecedented outpouring of the grace of God; heard them strike a keynote of gratitude, humility, unity, and simplicity "born on that wave of destiny that comes out of Heaven itself."
