Clarence Synder VideoClarence Synder Video
In this video, Clarence Snyder opens a “Came to Believe” retreat in Leesburg, Florida, in 1982. This is the only film of Clarence – recorded by Bob R. and later given to Dale and Carol Morfitt. 

The film begins as Clarence finishes some housekeeping tasks for the retreat, talking about the Al-Anon meeting, the Prayer and Praise session scheduled after the AA format retreat, and the purpose of the retreat. Clarence mentions Ed Andy, the Saturday speaker, who at the time had about 43 years in AA.
