It’s Movie Time

We invite you and your family to come ring in the new 2015 year with us! We will be playing back to back movies from 8 pm – 12 am and partying sober, Texas style.  One of our very own alum, will set up the big screen projector and play Maze Runner and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles @ GVH.  Since the gym is currently having a brand new floor put in, we will gather in the Lecture Hall for this movie night.  Please be sure to sign in upon arrival.
Did you know……. We will continue to have Movie Night on the 4th Saturday of every month! Alumni and their families are always welcome to participate!  All future movie nights will be held in the newly updated gym. Be sure to check back every month on our calendar of events to see what the movie will be.

You may prepay for your ticket(s) by clicking on the Make a Donation link on the right hand side of this page.  In the note section, type “Ranger Game 8/12”.  We will depart from Blue Mesa Grill in Arlington @ 6pm sharp, to ride the shuttle over to Globe Life Park in Arlington.  You will receive your ticket at that time, unless you made previous arrangements.  You may also pay at the upcoming July Renewal Day.  The ticket includes the price of your shuttle ride to and from the stadium.  You may bring in a collapsible water cooler that contains water, Gatorade, etc.  Doing so will save you money as water out there costs $6.00 a bottle.   Hope to see everyone there!

Celebrating the journey in 2014

“When you think you are overdue for a miracle in your life,

just remember you are right in the middle of one.”

Come celebrate with us!!!

The Memorial Garden is being built to remember those who have suffered from the disease of alcoholism and addiction and have lost the fight.  We will be having a special Renewal Day on January 31st, 2014, as well as a “Ribbon Cutting” Ceremony as we break ground to begin the work.  You can join us on Saturday,  February 1st @ 9:30 to come help get the site ready, dig up the old jasmine, help with the fence posts, etc.

We will need a “volunteer crew” in place for the future to help maintain the Memorial Garden and Serenity Garden.  If you wish to be apart of the team, simply email the alumnihopeline@gmail.com and let us know.

Recovery ROCKS!

We are asking all alumni to stop by on or after January 31st, 2014 to put your name and sobriety date on a recovery rock.  These rocks will be placed in the Serenity Garden, in what eventually will be a dry creek bed.

What’s NEW in 2014…New Year – New You!  

We have found a certified yoga instructor that will come and teach a Beginner’s Yoga class.   Feel free to join us the 2nd Saturday of every month, in the gym from 3pm – 5 pm.  Bring a yoga mat and/or towel if possible.  Water will be provided.  You will be amazed at how easy yoga can be and how it will renew your mind, body and spirit!

Upcoming Events:

January 31st – Renewal Day 9am – 2pm & special Ribbon Cutting/Ground Breaking Ceremony for the Memorial Garden.  Hot Chocolate and Coffee will be available, as well as brunch!

February – End of the month, Softball Practice will begin.  Cost is $10.00 per player.   Date, time, practice fields TBA.  There will be a sign up sheets posted at both IOP lobby reception and the Main Reception desk, beginning 1/13/14.

April – 2nd Annual Softball Tournament will take place.  Date, time and place still TBA.

20130510-181623.jpgWe are so proud to have placed 2nd in the annual softball tournament against The Right Step.  This was our first time participating and won’t be our last!  Everyone had such a great time, alumni, friends and family all united to bring it on home.  Now we have a nice trophy display case to go with the trophy, (on the left in red).  The one on the right is our Volleyball trophy we won last October during Octsoberfest.  There is also a photo “Brag” book along w/ our softball team picture as well on the shelf.  Stop by and take a look, this picture does not do it justice!  Our Renewal Day will be on the 31st of this month, beginning at 9:00 am. 

“HOPE” in a box

This is our new GVH Alumni Suggestion/Donations Box.
It is located in the front lobby during business hours. Feel free to drop any suggestions, comments, prayer requests, concerns, etc. Donations are also welcome and will go to alumni projects, events and to help other alumni in their recovery.

We are starting our 1st phase of revamping the grounds of GVH, in order to get ready for the 2nd part which will include a Serenity & Memorial Garden! We will be planting flowers…”Cannas” into designated flower beds. There will be free lunch for all that participate. So put on some old, comfy clothes and give back to the place that gave you HOPE back.
