|FROM THE CHAIR
Greetings! It is Fall again, the weather is cooler and the children are back in school. The leaves are changing color and falling from the trees as winter approaches. Over the next three months there will be many festivities and celebrations, of which drinking is often a part. For that reason, this is the time we need to be more vigilant in our program. We should take more commitments, make more meetings, start working with a newcomer, speak at a detox, get involved and volunteer at Intergroup.
|A reminder: We are again having the Thanksgiving and Holiday Sharathons. Hopefully they will be our most successful ever, helping even more people to stay sober at these times. Now, as my term is ending on October 31st.
I would like to thank you for the opportunity you've given me to do service. As the Chairperson of your Queens Intergroup Steering Committee I must now say:
"Goodbye, God bless you, and be well."
In love and service, John R.
