Yesterday our speaker was Ann P and she mentioned one of the folks that really helped her in her sobriety was a gent named Norm A from Monrovia CA.

So I thought why not feature him today, Norm got sober at the beginning of 1954 and at the time of this speak on Unity Day in San Jose, CA in the summer of 1982 he had been sober for 28 years, this was his last talk.
