Founded in 1966, the El Cerrito Fellowship evolved from a single weekly meeting to a full schedule of meetings geared towards people from all walks of life.
A loving landlady welcomed the fellowship with open arms and kept the rent to a very reasonable $500 for several years.
The El Cerrito Fellowship survived a fire in the 1970’s and members held home meetings and meetings in temporary locations while they helped repair the building. At our new fellowship, members raised thousands of dollars and donated countless hours of free labor to prepare the building for its current full schedule of meetings.
The El Cerrito Fellowship continues to grow and thrive, and now has a full slate of meetings and lots of activities, including a Birthday Chip Meeting on the last Saturday of every month, Memorial Day and Labor Day weekend potlucks and yearly celebrations of our anniversaries.
The El Cerrito Fellowship has a rich history of carrying the message of recovery and has been instrumental in spawning other local fellowships. For this, ECF has earned a special place in the annals of AA.
