February 2006
Greetings! I hope everybody's Holiday was happy, joyous and sober. I recently started my term as Chairperson of the Queens Intergroup Steering Committee. For the past two months, "we" of the Steering Committee have been busy with both the Thanksgiving and Holiday Sharathons at Our Savior Lutheran School on Woodhaven Boulevard in
Rego Park.

I would like to formally thank each group that participated, each person that attended a meeting, and each Intergroup volunteer that oversaw a time slot. Thank you! Because of you, the Sharathons were a success.

Many newcomers and old-timers alike got sober and stayed sober during the "hurricane season". As for the New Year, 2006, my plan is to take things "one day at a time". My best wishes for the New Year! I'll say "Good Bye" for now. Until next time, in love and service, John R.

Intergroup is looking for recovering alcoholics to volunteer to help answer Queens Intergroup's 24-hour hotline for alcoholics in need of help. Your home group may also want to take a shift and staff it with group members willing to pitch in. Call Queens Intergroup at 917-561-7033.
