We have been without access to the Website and for most of last week, to our email. This issue has been dealt with and is still a work in progress. We apologize for any problems this caused when using our site for meetings and other information.
We now have the Grapevine “Daily Quote” in stock. Similar to Daily Reflections from AAWS, this book has some great topic ideas and a shorter comment after the quote. A day by day type of book, it is full of new quotes from all of the Grapevine literature, from the magazines to the books. Inspiring quotes. Good job by the Grapevine; $10.99 each. Come read a few passages and see what you think.
The Dallas Intergroup will hold a phone workshop, “What Time is the Noon Meeting”, on Saturday, May 3rd, from 10am to 2pm at the First United Lutheran Church, 6202 E Mockingbird Lane, in the building behind the main church. We will cover how to answer AA phones in keeping with our 12 Traditions. This is an excellent event for Nightwatch Volunteers, office volunteers, or anyone who has ever answered a group phone or call from a newcomer. We will talk about the critical calls concerning suicide to the calls that challenge your serenity. Answering a call for Alcoholics Anonymous may mean the difference between sobriety and life or continued drunkenness and death. Your answers do matter. Join us Saturday for lots of information, a chance to answer some calls based on actual events and of course, food!
We now have a large print version of the mini Big Book in stock for $7.00. The abridged large print includes the same material as found in the B-35 or mini Big Book (the first 164 pages, Dr. Bob’s Nightmare and the seven appendices). As with the mini Big Book, none of the stories are included.
