The Dallas Central Office will be closed for inventory this Friday 12/9. Absolutely no sales will take place–this includes chips. Our phones will continue to be answered 24/7 by trained volunteers. Mail orders can still be placed via our Online Bookstore.
We will resume normal office hours on Monday 12/12 at 10 a.m.
Thankfully our office is back to a safe and easy to reach space. The main work going on at this time is outside in the front of the building. The inside is greatly improved with little construction continuing. Thank those of you who braved the Friday obstacles to get your orders. Hopefully that will not happen again. If there is anything we can do to help you or if you would like an order mailed at this time, just contact the office. We will do our best to work around the construction when necessary.
Most of the major installation has been completed so we should not have anything like our last Friday again.
Thank you all for attending the November Intergroup Meeting and voting in our yearly Board election. We had a remarkable turn out with 60+ members, many of whom provided delicious homemade desserts for our Election Night Sugar-fest. It was amazing and we thank you for your participation. Some of us may be suffering a bit of a sugar hangover today, but it was well worth it! If you need more dessert, we have the left-overs at the office. Many of you drive long distances to continue to participate in the Intergroup Rep Meetings every month and we appreciate that more than you know. As a result of your votes, we now have five new Board Members-
Our New Board of Trustees elected Nov. 10th:
- Jo M. Clean Air North
- Tom A. Lake Highlands
- Joe G. Allen
- Barney L. We Agnostics
- Jack L. Clean Air
Alternates for 2017:
- Rick B., Principles
- Baxter B., Chicago
- Stuart R., Simply AA
- Eric R., Lake Highlands
- Rob R., Casa
- Steve G., Shivering Denizens
- Rex L., The Colony
- Kevin L., Friendship
Alternates take the place of any Board member that has to resign, It does happen, so our alternates are very important.
Thank you again for being an active member of the Intergroup. With the new board we have eight different groups represented, and with the alternates, we have fourteen different groups which will give us a diverse group to further the work of the Dallas Intergroup Association and the Dallas Central Office!
Thanks to everyone that entered the 10th Annual Cook-off and to everyone that came to eat and support the event.
The top three Chili entries were:
First Place: “Hot Stuff” from Clean Air North Group
Second Place: “Slow Burn” from the We Agnostics Group
Third Place: “Muleskinner Red” from the Georgetown Group
The Winning Cornbread was entered by The Gift of Sobriety!
Congratulations to all winners and entrants. Thank you all for coming. Photos of the winners (in masks of course) will appear in our next issue of the DIAlog.
Thanks to everyone that participated in our 69th Central Office Anniversary. We had great cake and coffee plus our speaker, Earl H., was “on fire”! Once Earl auctioned off his own yearly chip we had a flood of donations and we are most grateful.
Our next event will be our 10th Chili Cook-Off. We will have a raffle, and plenty of extras. Bring your best chili and/or cornbread and compete! Our speaker will be Chris C., from the Frisco Group.
Saturday, October 22, from 2pm to 6pm. Trophies for the top three chili chiefs and the cornbread voted the best.. We will be at the Westside Christian Church, 4711 Westside Drive, Dallas, TX 75209. If you need a map go to the Sunday Morning Live Group. They have a meeting in this church. It is very close to the Inwood and Mockingbird intersection.
