I am an alcoholic, member of the Live Laugh Love group, my sobriety date is July 13th, 2008 and my name is Leslie. Thank you for letting me serve as your District 9 chairperson.
It was great seeing so many District 9 trusted servants in Tampa. We had a total vote of 26 which is good since Tampa is not the easiest to get to. We had a great Assembly. And remember, we are hosting our next Assembly in October right here in Boca Raton at the Boca Raton Marriott at Boca Center. There are many opportunities to be of service from working registration, being a greeter, taking a shift in hospitality. The next planning meeting for the Assembly is August 20th. More from Debbie, our Assembly chair in her report. Heather and the Support Your Services committee have started planning meetings for the Spaghetti dinner and I would love to see all of us there in service for that event. Next planning meeting is July 24th at Denny’s. Heather will have more in her report. Planning is still going strong for the 2019 Gratitude Dinner. Thank you to Judy O. and her committee. Their next planning meeting is July 28th at the 441 Group. And don’t forget, August 10th is our Carry the Message Day event right here at Nova. Victor will give us the details in his report.
One last event to mention is the 63rd Florida State Convention right here in our own backyard at the Trump Doral in Miami from Wednesday, July 31st to Sunday, August 4th. It is a not to be missed event with lots of fun, lots of fellowship and lots of great messages.
To any new trusted servants here today, welcome and please take this opportunity to get involved in any of our committees. They need the help and we all need the service and as you can see there is something for everyone. All of these events and planning meetings are on our website, www.district9aa.org.
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.
