We will be having a Dallas Intergroup, Central Office Workshop on May 9th, 2015, from 2pm to 4pm at the Dallas North Group.

The Dallas North Group has graciously offered us their space for this workshop, and we hope you will come to learn what we do and what it would be like without a Central Office.  We will have forms for you to fill out if you wish to volunteer for any position available through our office.  Bring your sponsees!!

Everyone is welcome.  Snacks will be provided.  Questions are welcomed.

Please see the flyer for more information.

We are beginning the process of updating a new printed directory.  Please let us know if your schedule needs to be adjusted.  The deadline for changes will be April 10th.  We will use the online information unless you contact us with changes.  Groups that have not contacted us for more than one year will be contacted once and then delisted pending confirmation of their information.  Sending people to groups that have not kept their schedules up to date is a disservice to the member and calls all of our listings into question.  Please check address, phone numbers, types of meetings, times, etc.  There are many groups that we have not heard from in more than 2 years.  If we do not hear from these groups before the deadline, they will be automatically delisted until we know their schedules are correct.  Letters to these groups are going out by Monday giving everyone plenty of time to contact us.  Call, email or fax your information.  214-887-6699, janis@aadallas or carrie@aadallas.org,  214-887-0443 fax.  For the majority of you that do keep us informed we greatly appreciate your cooperation.  Thanks!

The 9th Chili Cook-off trophies are engraved and ready to be picked up.  We can bring them to the next Intergroup or we can make a presentation to the group.  Anyway you want to get them!  Cornerstone Group was added for a second time to the permanent plaque in the DIA office.  Cornerstone, Friendship, We Agnostics and Clean Air all have trophies ready.  Let us know if you want a Board Member or staff of the Dallas Intergroup to present the trophy.  Congratulations to everyone that competed and the four winners.

They will look great at your group!!  We also have the 3rd Place ribbon that was not picked up for the chili cook-off.

Thank you to all participants!  We had a great night and a good competition.  The judges made their decisions and the following entries were selected:

  • 1st Place    Cornerstone Group  (for the second time in a row!!)
  • 2nd Place   Friendship Group
  • 3rd Place    We Agnostics Group

First place winner of the Cornbread Contest was:  Clean Air Group!

Maybe we can pry a recipe from the first place winners for the DIAlog.  If so we will publish the recipes in the next newsletter.  Thanks again to everyone who participated and to our speaker, Frank W., from the Preston Group.   As soon as the trophies are engraved, the winners will be notified and we will deliver your trophy or you can come pick it up at the office.  Congratulations to all the winners.
