November, 2020

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 humbled to be serving as the Chair for District 9.  Hope everyone is keeping safe.    It has been a little quiet around the District as we get ready for the holidays.  With everything going one, we have decided to postpone Winterfest until next December.    

We will be holding elections after our reports and we have motions that will be presented to the body.  Please take the motions back to your groups.  We will discuss and vote on our motions at our December meeting. For our elections, we will be using Third Legacy Procedure.  If you do not understand any of the proceedings, please let me know and I will do my best to explain.  The following positions are open:  Archives, Grapevine, Institution Liaison, Support Your Services and Carry the Message Day.  Standing Committees are two year terms and Service Activities are one year term with the eligibility to stand for a second year.  For each position, I will read the requirements and duties.  Please don’t be afraid to step up and remember you can’t keep it without giving it away.

If you are not getting our blasts, please contact Jackie, our Recording Secretary.  We are always sending out all kinds of good stuff and to make sure you are in our loop.  Also, we continue with our seventh tradition of passing a virtual basket through the Zelle application as well as contributions to our P.O. Box.  GSRs, please thank your groups who continue to contribute.

And don’t forget to register for the 2021 Florida State Convention in Jacksonville and show them some love.  If they succeed, we succeed.  

I am very grateful to everyone at District 9 who go above and beyond when it comes to service.   I need everyone here, a reliance on a Power greater than myself and the love in these rooms.  Remember the sun continues to shine in District 9.  In love and service, Leslie B. District 9 chairperson.
