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 be able to serve as your District 9 Chairperson.

The Gratitude Dinner was awesome with great food, fellowship and Speaker. Thank you all who participated and did Service. More details will be available a little later in the Gratitude Dinner Report.

Planning is underway for the Winterfest Holiday Dinner & Ice Cream social. More info will be provided from Bobby V & Heather M in the Support your Services report.

District elections went well last month with almost all positions filled. Today, in this District meeting we will be holding elections for the following positions; Archives and Grapevine which are 2 year terms and Carry the Message Day which is a 1 year term with the eligibility to stand for a second year. Don’t be afraid to step up. You can’t keep it without giving it away. Right now we would like to take this opportunity to thank Thomas D for his service while Archives Chairperson. We wish Thomas gratitude and willingness to continue to carry the message and inspire the newcomer. Good luck Thomas in all you do.

This week I got a very nice email from the Broward County Institutions Chairperson Ken J and their Steering Committee. Ken writes “I want to thank and recognize David for his excellence in service to our Committee. During his 2 year commitment he demonstrated great leadership, provided wisdom and acted in the best interests of AA.” District 9 would like to thank David for your hard work and dedication. You are an example for us all.

In early December, we will be looking to finalize our lease with NSU. We have signed the lease with no change to the dates that have been proposed. The rooms have been determined and now we just need to wait until the Liability Insurance is processed and execute final payment. The 2019 Calendar will be available on the table at the December District Meeting as well as on the District Website for your  use.

Hope to see you at Winterfest on December 8th right here at Nova Southeastern University. Klondike Bars…. Yummm…

Kindest regards in Unity thru Love & Service, Al K. District 9 Chairperson Area 15 Panel 67. Email:
