*Suggested Meeting Contribution Increased
In February, the Board of Trustees made a financial decision to change the suggested meeting contribution to US$5 per meeting. The amount had not been updated in about ten years, and our costs, of course, have risen in that time. We want to uphold our Responsibility Pledge by offering all necessary services to our members—always. When our projected income threatens to compromise our ability to carry the message through these services, the budgeting process becomes extremely challenging. The slogan for contributions is “give as if your life depends on it.” The quality of our lives is clearly improved as we apply the Principles of the Steps and Traditions. I am happy to contribute $5 (still less than a fast food meal these days) for that improved quality of life.

The Tranquility Retreat 2020: Living the Program, Walking the Walk, has been cancelled.
We will be back in 2021 in June. We are waiting on the official dates in 2021 which will be posted when we receive them. All who registered will be receiving refund checks by the end of June 2020. It was a hard decision, but we just could not guarantee everyone’s safety during this COVID-19 time. Hope to see you next year -
