thank you for your service :)

From that ten-cent phone call and a cup of coffee to AA's General Service Office. What's your take on service?

thank you Nari for leading an excellent discussion on Tradition 4 in the chat venue, it is much appreciated.

Krys (chat) has asked me to line up volunteers for the 2 speaker meetings in chat.
the lead speaker meeting is on Tuesdays at 3:30 pm est.
the 12and12 speaker is needed on Fridays at 9:00 pm est.

If you would please consider it, whether you share your story or your experience, strength and hope with the steps and traditions, it will be greatly appreciated! :)

the Fri. meeting alternates between the steps one week, then next week Tradition, then step, then Tradition the following week and so on.

please let me know, and I will be happy to fill you in at your convenience!

thank you, and as always, I look forward to hearing from you.
Jack
