Intergroup Meeting Minutes – December 2014

Meetings starts 6:30 p.m.

Dawn opens with 12 Traditions

Why not start out 2015 by doing something happy like coming to our Intergroup open house! What is Intergroup you say? Well, it is one of the best kept secrets of Lincoln AA.

Here is the deal. Intergroup is about the Lincoln groups working together, and each group ought to have an Intergroup rep but most don’t. So we want to let you, the membership, know what we are about. That is the reason for the invitation. And to sweeten the evening we are providing snacks!

— Come join us for our January 30 meeting. It s Friday night at the Willard Community Center 1245 Folsom, Lincoln (off of West A) 6:30pm. Bring your curiosity.
