Annual Alumni Reunion
Summer Sky Celebrates 35-Years of Addiction Treatment and Recovery
Summer Sky will celebrate 35-years of Addiction Treatment and Recovery on October 10th, 2020. We Are grateful to the thousands of people who have utilized our services over the years. We understand that 2020 has been a challenge for all people in personal recovery. As we unite with our alumni as they trudge the road to a happy destiny through these more difficult times. We want each one of our alumni to know that you are all very important to us at Summer Sky and we look forward to the day when the pandemic is behind us and we can meet in person to share our experience, strength, and hope.
This year because of the pandemic we will not be gathering for our annual alumni reunion in person. However, we would like to invite you to stop by our Facebook Page on Saturday, October 10, 2020, and leave a comment on our Facebook page and read and look at a post from other alumni celebrating their recovery. We will be posting messages from our staff including videos from our staff to our alumni on Saturday, October 10th, 2020.
Our formal gathering of our Annual Alumni Reunion has been rescheduled for April 17, 2021!
Alumni Recovery Reminders:
Staying in recovery is something we all must do to remain clean & sober daily. Many people utilize slogans or reminders to help them stay focused on recovery centered activities. The famous “Five Alive” is something practiced by people in recovery daily. Keeping things simple and to the point is always helpful if we are new to recovery or older in recovery. Here is the Five Alive listed below.
- Begin each day in prayer
- Read Recovery material, 12-step, or spiritual literature
- Talk with another in recovery today
- Attend a 12-step meeting or recovery support group
- End the day in prayer
Stop by our Facebook Page at https://www.facebook.com/summer.sky.144/ and leave us a message about your recovery anytime and remember to go to our page on Saturday, October 10, 2020, to let us know how you are doing or leave us a comment about your recovery.
On Saturday, October 10th, 2020 we will be posting videos to our Facebook page along with YouTube videos on our website from our staff. It will be our way of thanking you and encouraging others to keep moving forward in personal recovery. We believe in the power that brings people out of the depths of addiction into recovery. God has continually blessed Summer Sky as a place of healing and new beginnings for people with substance use disorders. Our Staff would like to think you all for allowing us to be a part of your journey into recovery. For this Summer Sky will always be grateful for each one of the alumni and their families.

(From pages 83-84 of the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous)
If we are painstaking about this phase of our development, we will be amazed before
we are halfway through. We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness.
We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it. We will comprehend the word
serenity and we will know peace. No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we
will see how our experience can benefit others. That feeling of uselessness and self-pity
will disappear. We will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows. Self-seeking will slip away. Our whole attitude and outlook on life will change. Fear of people
and economic insecurity will leave us. We will intuitively know how to handle situations
which used to baffle us. We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could
not do for ourselves.
Are these extravagant promises? We think not. They are being fulfilled among us –
sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. They will always materialize if we work for them.
