District 21: Erik
Continuing work on hosting reunion on June 25-26. Also getting ready for the Unity Picnic. Fliers coming. July 21, 12:30-3:30 at Van Dorn Park. There will be food. Trent G & Joel E are speaking. Balance quite high, so they’ll be sending alt DCM to Area for the rest of the year ($853.19 balance)
Motion: to increase treasurer budget by $10 to pay for the post office box. Passed.
Ladies Big Book discussed that many meetings on the meeting list are incorrect or non-existing. Intergroup discussed ways for this to get communicated to webmaster.
Eric presented a proposal about a service meeting that should be shared with all groups and discussed.
Start a monthly meeting that would teach AA Members about the service structure and different positions, how to get involved and what each pieces is. It’d be the same each month. Hoping to do it ad Bryan LGH West in a classroom. Structure would be the same each time. Would like to try for 6 months and see how it goes. Eric has volunteered to lead. Request that intergroup support until it can support itself. ($10 a month) There would be a 1 time expense of preparing the binder for the meeting.
They’d like to start this in September, so please come with thoughts to June meeting.
Meeting closed at 7:36 p.m. and we all gathered for the Serenity Prayer.
The next meeting is Friday, June 24 @ 6:30 p.m. @ Willard Community Center-1245 S. Folsom St.
