District is still working with the Sheriffs Dept in the hopes of establishing a meeting in the County Jail. We will need volunteers to act as outside AA members to facilitate a meeting there once it is in place. Please plan on attending District meeting or contact us if you are interested in taking a meeting to those folks “behind the walls”.
The PI/CPC committee is looking for volunteers to do follow up work with the libraries and schools within the District. In 2004 the Committee distributed literature and pamphlets to all the schools and libraries in the District and it is time to see what materials they may need replenished. Also, we need to get back in touch with radio stations to make public service announcements available for broadcast.
This is an important function of the District service work; to make the public and professionals in the area aware of A.A. as a resource for those that may have a drinking problem.
Bill D. Mail Contact for the District presented the Meeting with materials received from GSO, AAWS and the Grapevine. Bill notes that this and all materials received are for the use of the District and the Groups in the District. If your Group would like to know what materials are available, attend District meeting or contact us
The Spring workshop has been arranged. The theme of the workshop is “Primary Purpose”. There will be presentations on sponsorship and from elected General Service officers on the responsibilities of their offices. The workshop will be held Sat. Apr 1st, at St John Church of Christ, 429 N Washington, Owosso from 1:00 till 4:00 PM.
Bill D., Sec. asked the District to compile a list of addresses of folks willing to accept the responsibility for receiving mail for the meeting they attend. We very much desire to be able to make sure that each Group be able to place a copy of these minutes and announcements of events in the District on the tables of each meeting held in District 10. Please help us in this regard and contact us as soon as possible.
There was a suggestion from the floor that the District hold a District wide Picnic. There are now two active A.A. picnics in the District; Owosso-Chesaning and Durand Area. Any District wide Picnic will be scheduled so as to not interfere with those two events.
