Rita M. of Visalia will be the main speaker. It’s always a nice drive to Springville, and breakfast is $5
Please note that there was some confusion on our part (web services), and the Women’s Happy Hour meeting in Hanford on Thursdays was listed twice, with two different times. The (one) meeting is correct now, and starts at 6:00 PM.
Our next planning meeting for Soberfest 2021 will be August 11 at 5:30 PM at St. Paul Episcopal Church. This link also has links to the minutes of the last meeting, and, the descriptions of what each service position covers.
Think you make a pretty good ice cream? Or maybe you just want a delicious treat on an August evening? Better yet, it comes with a Speaker Meeting! Please check out the Central California Council of Alcoholics Anonymous (3C 2A) Fresno Ice Cream Festival event.
The P.I. (Public Information) & C.P.C. (Cooperation with the Professional Community) service committees have the responsibility to carry the Primary Purpose of A.A. to the community. The Primary Purpose of A.A. is to help the still suffering alcoholic. This event will be a one hour presentation, followed by questions and answers, and is aimed at non-alcoholic people who deal with alcoholics. An introduction to Al Anon Family Groups will also be presented.
The planning for the Founders Day Picnic 2021 got off to a great start. Thank you to everyone who attended. The next planning meeting will also be at the Gold Star Mobile Home Park club house, on this Tuesday July 27th at 5:30 PM
At the C.S.R. meeting, we picked the date for this year’s Founders Day Picnic: Saturday, October 2nd. That leaves us with two months for planning; please join us this Tuesday, July 20th at 5:30 PM.
There were many things to talk about in this last planning meeting, and we still have more to talk about; so, we are going to do another planning meeting on Wednesday July 21st.
We still have MUCH to accomplish
- We need to finalize our plans for WHAT we will do with Soberfest.
- Decide on the event’s organization (as a committee of the Valley Group or a separate entity not affiliate with an AA Group) should be.
- ELECT our Service Leaders.
Items that may need further discussion
- Continue to offer a 50/50 raffle?
- Should we hold some activity before the dinner? Ideas mentioned include a Spanish AA meeting or possibly a 3 Legacies Panel of speakers.
Soberfest 2021 will be in-person on Saturday, October 16; but great events like this don’t happen without planning and volunteers. If you want to be a part of this great event, please join us for the first planning meeting at St. Paul Episcopal Church.
The Central Service Representatives (CSR) meeting is coming up this Tuesday, July 13th, at the Central Office in Exeter. We’re back to an in-person meeting, too.
