I want to thank the Rutland Turning Point Club for a great Fourth of July barbecue. Good food, good people, all for free in a safe, sober environment. The barbecue and club were open to the public and were a great way for anybody to enjoy themselves and have fun.
I have referred to the club as an oasis and have found the club to be a great resource in a time of some unrest and trouble. Located at 141 State St., Turning Point Club is open every day and has free dinners every Friday, open to the public.
Turning Point is an important part of Rutland’s positive change and has been a valuable asset to the Rutland community for years, supporting sobriety and individual growth.
Please recognize and appreciate this important asset and enjoy having fun in the pressure free, sober environment. I hope more people discover the Rutland Turning Point club.
