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.
Our Spaghetti Dinner Event on Saturday, September 7th was a great success. We had a really good turnout. The food was tasty and filling and the speaker, our very own past trusted servant, John A. was awesome. He had a powerful message of hope and recovery with lots of service thrown in. If you missed the Spaghetti Dinner, don’t fret, our next event of food, fellowship and message will be our Winterfest event. Heather, our Support your Services chair has all of the details. We are hosting the 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 September 17th. More from Debbie, our Assembly chair 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 September 29th at the Pompano Beach Group at 1:00 pm. Jessica C. and the Archives committee are busy planning for the Early Timer’s Event to be held October 12th and the planning meeting for this event is Saturday, September 28th at the 441 Group at 2:00 pm.
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.
