2022 Ron R Memorial Retreat

December 2-4, 2022
   The Claggett Retreat Center

3035 Buckeystown Pike Adamstown, MD 21710

Ron Rothgeb started the "Men's CDA Retreat" in November, 1985 and enthusiastically managed it until his passing on September 11, 2003. The retreat was a very special event for Ron, and he was most happy when the event would sell out.


In his last days, I asked Ron “what can we do for you, in your memory?” He simply replied "to keep the retreat going. It has helped so many chemically dependent men deal with the God problem." I then asked him, would it be ok to name the retreat after him? He said as long as it close to or does sells out, yes. If not, take my name off it!


I would like to express sincere gratitude to all the men who have helped make the Ron R. Retreat a super success for the past 19 years. Ron would be very proud of us especially since we've been selling out and the name still remains the same!

Love and Service,

Willie B.
