Cake night is held on the last Friday of every month at 8:00 pm. A typical evening includes a guest speaker, cake and sobriety chip presentation followed by light snacks.
An exemption to this routine is in December, when the Cake Night date is changed to New Years eve. A pot luck dinner is served at 7:00 pm followed by the regular Cake Night event. We include our clubroom anniversary by presenting an anniversary cake with the sobriety cake presentation. The event has always been very popular; bring your favorite food for everyone to enjoy.
The Cake Night Song
“I Wanna Fly” by Errol Ranville, album cover.
We sing this song on Cake Night by candle light and it is very moving. It was selected and affirmed as the Cake Night song at the first group conscience meeting of the How It Works group on October 10, 1991. It is nondenominational, in keeping with the nature of AA. The song was recorded at Maddock Studios in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1988. The lyrics are here and you can listen to it here.
Errol was born August 1, 1953 in Ste. Rose du Lac, a small Metis community in rural Manitoba, Canada. His brother Wally also sang and played guitar on the album.
