AA chapter

< Previous | Next >


At the funeral of Ernest, the priest:
-- Dr. Menville pursued with vigor a variety of pursuits not just to attain some personal ambition, but to enhance the world for us and make it a better place than he found it. Oh, and that he did. The Menville Marriage Counseling Clinic, the Menville Center for the Study of Women, and of course, Ernest's AA chapter will carry on long after his death.
Death Becomes Her, movie

Chapter: "a branch of some societies, clubs, etc., esp of a secret society"
AA: "Alcoholics Anonymous"

Is it right?
Thank you.
