Finally!!! Our printing company was swamped but we did go pick up the directories yesterday rather than wait for them to be delivered. We have plenty and the ones that we promised to mail for free will go out today. If you need to come get those on hold they are here. Our Newcomer Envelopes will be in today and life should be back to as normal as it gets here. We apologize for the delay but it was out of our control. Thank you all for your understanding we appreciate your support. Any questions just give us a call.
As you know, the building we are in, The Wilshire Building, is undergoing a complete reconstruction. This past Saturday, July 16th, made it quite clear that opening our office on Saturdays is not only dangerous but was almost impossible to get into the building. The workmen take advantage of the weekend to do major destruction. We are the only retail office in this building and only open two Saturdays, so no one took that into consideration.
For everyone’s safety and the staff and volunteer’s wellbeing, the office will not be open on Saturdays until the construction is complete or until we find a temporary location to wait out the renovation. There will be changes in our hours if we do not find a temporary location quickly. We will keep you posted. Until something is posted hours remain 10am to 5pm.
Please check your group’s online listing for errors. If your current schedule does not match what is shown on our website please call and tell us the changes we need to make for accuracy. We are updating the printed schedule and the printed listing for all groups will reflect what is currently online. Let us know by June 10th if there are any changes.
Any group that does not contact us with verification of their schedule and we have not heard from in more than a year will be automatically dropped from the online and printed schedule. (If you are a regular customer just check your schedule and let us know of any changes)
We do not want to send newcomers, visitors or any other A.A. member to a meeting that no longer exists or has moved without informing the Central Office of the change. In an effort to make our directory as current as possible, groups with outdated contact information, will be dropped. If we cannot confirm your group and your group does not make an effort to stay current with their listings, we have no choice but to drop that group from our schedule.
If you visit our office in the near future, be aware that a lot of work is being done throughout the building. While it may look like something out of a horror movie at the moment, DIA is open for business and it is bright and friendly in our space! We have no idea how long this will take. However, we will be here waiting for you! Be careful of the steps. It is easy to trip on the exposed edges. The elevator is slow but reliable.
We will be holding our 10th Annual Cook-off in the Fall this year instead of Springtime. Cooler weather, hopefully, and we want to make this year a very special event. We will be releasing information in the coming months special events leading up to the actual cook-off. More will be revealed! Watch for clues when you see this on any flyer. Add them all up and you could be the grand winner of a very special prize!
Watch for clues when you see this guy.
