Group Reports:
How It Works Group   Seth H. – (Sunday – Saturday 10:00PM – Lincoln)
Attendance is good. The Saturday meeting is consistent.  This is a 7 day a week meeting.  The group will be making disbursements shorty.  The group is always reviewing and addressing all safety concerns.

Early Birds Group   Rod M.   – (Monday – Friday 8:15AM – Lincoln)
The meeting is going good.  There was some discussion about the concern of what is a good AA meeting and if it would be a meeting that is solution focused.

Sunday Noonish Group   Debbie C. – (Sunday 12:15PM – Lincoln)
The group is looking at potential changes with the group.  The service positions have become less consistent.  The attendance has been also less consistent.  There has been some discussion of potentially moving the meeting to another location or closing the meeting all together.

60 Minutes Group    Candy L.  – (Sunday 10:15AM – Lincoln)
The group has elected a new GSR who is learning what this role is all about.  The group is currently evaluating their current budget.

The group is steady and growing.
