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.
We have a special treat today as our Delegate, Shirley P. is here to give her report on the General Service Conference that was held in May. And a big thank you to Shirley for taking the time to keep us all well informed and for representing our District and Area. It’s a big job. I am very excited to hear her report. Last Saturday was our Carry the Message Day event here at Nova. A big Thank you to Victor for a successful event. The speakers for District were our very own Jackie S. who gave us much inspiration and John A., a past district chair. Thank you to all of the committee chairs who showed up and represented our District. We are hosting our next Assembly in October right here in Boca Raton at the Boca Raton Marriott at Boca Center. There are still opportunities to be of service from working registration, being a greeter or 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 are going full force for the Spaghetti dinner and I would love to see all of us there in service for that event which is next month, September 7th. The next planning meeting is August 21st at Denny’s. Heather will have more. Planning is still going strong for the 2019 Gratitude Dinner. Thank you to Judy O. and her committee. Their next planning meeting is August 25th at the Sober Today Club. Jessica C. and the Archives committee are busy planning for the Early Timer’s Event to be held in October and the planning meeting for this event is Saturday, August 24th at the 441 Group.
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.
