National Recovery Month Event - with William Cope Moyers
UW-Stout Student Memorial Center, Menomonie, WI
Private Reception at 5:00 PM (contact Arbor Place to find out how you can attend) Public Address at 7 PM
Arbor Place, Inc. will bring nationally known author and speaker William Cope Moyers. Moyers, son of public television personality Bill Moyers, has personal and professional experience with addiction, treatment and recovery. He is the author of “Broken: My Story of Addiction and Redemption,” a New York Times bestseller now in its third printing. The center is sponsoring an informal “community read” before the event.
Arbor Place, tucked away in a small building in Menomonie on the north side of the Mayo Clinic Medical Center since 1976, broke ground for a new, expanded facility in the Stout Tech Park in July. The $5.2 million project, funded by a USDA Rural Development grant and local support, will allow the non-profit, 501c3 agency to enhance current programming and expand services.
A reception at 5 p.m. before the talk is a major fundraising event for Arbor Place. Members of the 100 Women group with a pledge of $1000 (over 5 years that's $200/year) will have their name inscribed in the Healing Garden, an open-air, plant-filled courtyard at the new facility in which people whose lives are in chaos can find some quiet serenity.
For more information about the 100 women group, contact Jill Gamez at Arbor Place, 715 235 4537. The mission of Arbor Place, Inc. is to provide prevention, treatment, renewal, & recovery opportunities to individuals, families, and communities impacted by substance abuse & dependence and mental health disorders.
