We now have a new plugin for the events calendar. It will of course look a bit different. You can view by event or month. The flyer if one has been sent, will be found in the body of the description. I am currently uploading the October events. I don’t think I will be entering all of the past months due to the amount of time it would take. For now I will concentrate on October and November or any future date.
Many thanks to everyone that attended the Anniversary last Saturday. It was the best celebration yet. Hilda F. was a fantastic speaker. During her talk there was absolute silence which is sometimes very hard to get in an AA event! If you missed it, you missed a wonderful time with fellowship, the history of AA in Dallas, some really incredible cake and a fine, inspiring talk. We will have Hilda’s talk on CD for sale in the office in a few days. Thanks to all the volunteers who helped with the event and a special thanks to the members who came back to the DIA office to unload. We found the elevator was not working, so there were many trips up the stairs to get 200 chairs into a safe area for pick-up as well as all the other material that had to be moved. Even our 4 year old greeter was carrying a chair at a time upstairs! Fueled by the event, we managed to have some fun despite the work. It was quite a night!! Thank all of you for contributing to a night of AA magic!
We now have the latest Grapevine book in stock. “No Matter What: Dealing with Adversity in Sobriety” is the newest Grapevine volume. Some of the chapters include: physical adversity;, emotional adversity; financial adversity; and spiritual adversity. The section on “When Love and Tolerance Fails Us, was quite interesting and helpful! Another good book from Grapevine. All information in the volume are from the pages of Grapevine magazine and in this case very well-chosen. $10 at the DIA office.
The meeting pages have been updated. It’s been a long time coming, but check them out and please give us feedback!
