We Are Open
Dear North Shore Alano Members and Visitors:
The North Shore Alano (NSA) at 607 Lake St. in Evanston, Illinois is currently open for some, not all, live meetings. Please check our Onsite-Meetings page for details. As for now, we will continue all Zoom Meetings along with a couple Hybrid* meetings, available on our Online-Meetings page, until further notice.
The church and North Shore Alano board, has decided to lift the mask mandate for onsite meetings. However, anyone may wear a mask at their discretion.
If you are a newcomer to the AA fellowship or you need the hand of AA, please call the Chicago Area Service Office for assistance at 312-346-1475. You also leave a voicemail at 847-328-9830 and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
The North Shore Alano in Evanston, Illinois, was established in 1981 and is home to 45+ Alcoholics Anonymous meetings each week. The North Shore Alano also has one Al-Anon and two ACOA (Adult Children of Alcoholics) meetings each week.
The North Shore Alano is located on the second floor of the Lake Street Church of Evanston, 607 Lake Street, Evanston, Illinois. The entrance is on the north side of Lake Street, just west of Chicago Avenue. There is plenty of street and metered parking nearby, as well as a public parking lot on Sherman Avenue, just one block west. On Sundays, metered parking is free.
Click the ‘Meetings‘ tab above for a schedule of all meetings, including ‘Open’ meetings, that are open to all.
The North Shore Alano’s mission is to provide a safe and clean place for meetings.
As such, there are a few things we’d like to remind everyone about:
- Please be respectful of each other during meetings. If there are disturbances or you feel unsafe, please see the steward for help.
- No smoking or vaping in the NSA including meeting rooms, restrooms and any part of the church.
- The use of recording devices or photography at the NSA or in meetings is not allowed. Remember, anonymity is the spiritual foundation of our program.
- The NSA rooms are for meetings, not a gathering place outside of meeting times. Please arrive no more than 20 minutes before your meeting and depart from the club 20 minutes after the meeting has ended.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mark S. or any other board member. Their contact information is available from our stewards.
*Hybrid meetings are both online Zoom meetings and onsite live at North Shore Alano at 607 Lake Street in Evanston, Illinois.
