I’m an alcoholic, member of the Tamarac Group, and my name is Al.  My sobriety date is March 2, 2004.  I am honored to serve as your District 9 Chairperson. Our Old Timer’s Meeting was held on Saturday, May 13th here at Nova. We had 3 really good speakers with over 35 years of sobriety each. More will be revealed by our Archives Committee in just a bit. Support Your Services is gearing up for the Founders Day picnic on June 4th, so please listen carefully to Joey B’s report to find out how you can get involved and get your tickets at a discount.  He really needs your help and support as this is a big event. Additionally, we are having planning meetings for the Unity Breakfast, Gratitude Dinner, the October Assembly we are hosting, and Carry the Message Day. All committees are in need of volunteers so don’t be afraid to get involved to grow and learn. Please also see Sandy as we need help with the Delegate Luncheon and what Pot Luck foods we can tempt Annie with before she gives her report from the General Service Conference here on June 11th. We will not be having our normal workshops as the luncheon starts at 12:00 pm. You may need to get here a little early to help set up. Our District Meeting will be following a modified format to give time for the Delegate Report. I know she has been working real hard preparing her presentation. The next Assembly will be at the Hyatt Sarasota, July 21st thru the 23rd. Flyers are available on the table or can be printed from the District or Area websites. Don’t forget the 61st Florida State Convention being held in Jacksonville on July 27th – July 30th. The theme is “Love in Action”. I’m going and would love to see you all there. Please remember that we are in immediate need of a PI/CPC Chair and a Webmaster (Web Chair) so if you have the qualifications and time please consider standing for one of these position later today. Do not be afraid. Remember, God doesn’t necessary choose the qualified but qualifies the chosen. Please also listen to see what interests you when your trusted servants are giving their reports today and feel free to get involved. We can’t keep it without giving it away. In doing this for fun and for free at times we can be a little wacky but District 9’s dedication to service and carrying the message is among the best in the Area. Thank you all for your participation and support. Remember to check the District website for details of all upcoming events.  Thanks to each of you here for your willingness in representing your Groups, You are the heartbeat of the District as we work together to carry the message. Always lead by example as words may not always be relied upon but actions ring true. In Unity thru Love & Service, Al K. District 9 Chairperson Area 15 Panel 67. Email:
