I am an alcoholic, member of the Live Laugh Love group, my sobriety date is July 13th, 2008 and my name is Leslie.  I am so honored to be serving as your District 9 chairperson.   Congratulations to our new chairs elected at the January meeting.

Our next Assembly will be at the Boca Raton Marriott, April 5th through 7th.  Flyers on the website.  Our Delegate, Shirley P. sent out the 2019 General Service Conference Committee Agenda Items and they are on the website.  (shout out to Milinda and her website committee, everything for the district and about the district is on the website).  As soon as the background material is available, I will send out to those members who are presenting and we will go over the items at our district meeting.  Please bring these agenda items back to your groups for discussion so we can better advise our Delegate, Shirley at the April Assembly.

Our next event for Support Your Services is the Spring Fling Chili Cook Off and Dinner with karaoke and speaker meeting.  The dinner is March 2nd and planning meetings are wrapping up.  I attended the planning meeting this last Wednesday and it was very well attended. Don’t miss out on the fun.  The last planning meeting is February 27th.  This is an excellent way to give back by doing service and you most definitely will have fun.  Heather will give us more details in her report.

I have been in contact with Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church for our annual Gratitude Dinner and we have the date of November 1st for the dinner.  They have penciled us in for that date and those planning meetings will begin soon. Judy O. will fill us in.  And as a side note, the 2018 Gratitude Dinner contribution was sent to the General Service Office this past week.  That check was in the amount of $3,284.28.

To any new trusted servants here today, please take this opportunity to get involved in any of our committees.  They need the help and we all need the service.

I am very grateful to everyone at District 9 who go above and beyond when it comes to service.  I can’t do any of this on my own.  I need everyone here, a reliance on a Power greater than myself and the love in these rooms.  And remember that the sun always shines in District 9.  In love and service, Leslie B. District 9 Chair.
