SEARHC to host sobriety picnic on Sandy Beach Sunday

The SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium Juneau Behavioral Health Clinic is hosting its second annual sobriety picnic on Sunday at Sandy Beach in Douglas.

There will be games, prizes and fun on the beach or at the softball fields during the afternoon, with the barbecue being fired up at 5 p.m. at the Sandy Beach picnic shelter through 9 p.m. People can bring their favorite dishes to share, the more food the better. SEARHC Behavioral Health also will supply some food.

“This is going to be open to whomever is trying to stay sober on the holiday. Knowing that this holiday is a difficult time for people not to drink, we want to provide a good place and people to be with to help them avoid drinking or using drugs,” said SEARHC Behavioral Health Aide/Chemical Dependency Counselor Toni Weber. “Donations would be great, and the more community involvement the better. We do plan on doing this for years to come, and last year we had about 45 people show up.”

Many of the games will be for kids, such as three-legged races, water balloon toss and other beach games. A Native drumming group also will be at the picnic. There will be a SEARHC banner hanging at the beach so people can find the group.

For more information, contact Toni Weber at 463-6670 or by e-mail at toni.weber@searhc.org.
