Tonight, the recovery topic is “Popsicle sticks.”
Now, Popsicle Sticks is not really a topic but rather a style of meeting here in Southeast Michigan. Tonight, this show will be presented in the form of a popsicle stick meeting.

Now, back to the show…


Tonight, the topic is 

Popsicle Sticks


A popsicle stick meeting is a meeting where we let our higher power determine what we need to share on.  Here in the studio, we have a can full of popsicle sticks. Each stick has a recovery topic written on it.  We will take turns, randomly picking a stick and then sharing on that topic that was chosen.


I first experienced “Popsicle Sticks” at the Thursday Midnight night meeting at the Northwest Alano Club in Wayne Michigan.  At first I hated it, then I got used to it, then it became my favorite meeting.  


Flash forward to 2008ish when the PC Alano club started in Canton, Michigan.  On September 28, 2008, the Canton Candlelight meeting started at the PC Alano Club.  Soon after that, this style of meeting started on Thursday nights. This style of meeting continues at Canton Candlelight every Thursday at 10:00 pm and is led by are own Matt O.


Here’s how it goes.

Pick a stick

Announce the topic to all

Share on the topic

Keep the stick

Pass the can
