Tyler's Alcoholics Anonymous Celebrate's 60th Anniversary

For 60 years an East Texas group has come together to fight an addiction and support each other along the way.   This weekend, the local community of Alcoholics Anonymous celebrated its 60th birthday at Harvey Convention Center. What was at one time one AA group in Tyler has grown to more than 25. This weekend, more than 800 people came out from all over Texas and surrounding states.  

"It's a fellowship to see other's and get to know other alcoholics in the area and we hear speakers that have made something of their life after they have gotten sober, and it's an inspiration to us," said Chairman of Anniversary Event Ed. The anniversary celebration continues tonight until midnight and again tomorrow morning.
