Join us this Tuesday, May 19 at 7:30 PM for the return of the Fresh Start Alumni Association’s monthly alumni meeting, Zoom style!

It’s been nearly 3 months since we last held the monthly FSAA alumni meeting and, unfortunately, at this point, there’s no way to know when we’ll be able to be together again. It could be weeks or it could be months. But, eventually, we will! In the meantime we have the internet.

This Tuesday, we’re going to hold the meeting through Zoom. Obviously, It’s not going to be the same. There won’t be a raffle, there won’t be cake, and there won’t be hugs. But, we can still see each other’s faces, hear each other’s voices, and celebrate recovery — apart but together.

Greetings alumni,


We hope this message finds you and your loved ones healthy and safe.


Due to the global Coronavirus pandemic, on March 10 Contra Costa Health Services recommended cancelling or postponing community events greater than 50 people. Because of this, the FSAA has decided to cancel the March 21 Crab Feed.


We are saddened to have to cancel. The Crab Feed is one of the FSAA's most popular events. But, due to the seasonality of crab, it is not possible to simply reschedule. We look forward to holding it again next year.


Thank you to everyone who had already purchased tickets. We will be issuing full refunds this week. If you purchased tickets from an FSAA board member or volunteer, please try to contact them or send us an email to arrange a refund. If you purchased tickets online, no action is necessary. You should automatically be issued a refund sometime this week.


The next scheduled FSAA event is the annual Picnic & BBQ on August 23. It is our h...
