Sane & Sober to continue meeting?
The Sane & Sober Meeting, Wednesdays at 6:30 pm, Vibrant Church, 2025 Williston Rd, South Burlington, is considering folding due to spotty attendance. If you like this meeting, or want to support it, show up! They tend to get newcomers. Some people have not been able to find the meeting in the building: it is held in the kitchen area.

Service Opportunities
Service will keep you sober!
There are opportunities that require only as much of your time that you want to give:

The Answering Service needs phone numbers of women in Districts 2 & 11 who are willing to speak to someone who calls the Hotline. If someone calls the Hotline (802-802-2288) asking to speak to a member of AA, an Answering Service employee will take their number and have an AA member call them back. There are plenty of men, but only 3 women are on the call list. Contact District 2 Secretary: secretary@burlingtonaa.org

The Public Information/Cooperation with the Professional Community (PI/CPC) Committee needs members who will pick up AA literature from the Chair and deliver it to various locations around District 2 (Burlington). Contact John M., PI/CPC Committee Chair, if you'd like to help! 802-923-0114 or pi@burlingtonaa.org

District Committee Chairs and members needed in both Districts 2 & 11. The following Chair positions are open:
--in District 2: Answering Service, Eye Opener, Treatment
--in District 11: Answering Service
And you can get active on any of the District committees without being the chair! Come to a monthly District Business meeting to find out more (dates & times on
Home page).

--Write stories of recovery for a monthly newsletter, “A New Freedom,” which gets sent into all correctional facilities in VT and put on tablets for residents to read. Guidelines: 600-800 words, but no story turned down. Also, you don't need to have been in corrections. All stories of recovery are needed to carry the message. If you have a story to share (we all do!) please send to Tammy W, Area Corrections Chair: area70corrections@aavt.org
--Correspond by mail with incarcerated men at the St. Johnsbury facility.
--Bring AA meetings into the St. Johnsbury men's facility. If you know anyone closer to that area, please pass along this need.
--Pass on your old Grapevines to residents in the women's facility in South Burlington.
--For more information about any of the Corrections service opportunities, please contact Charlie P, District 2 Corrections Chair (corrections@burlingtonaa.org), or Tammy W, Area Corrections Chair (area70corrections@aavt.org), or fill out this form-- Download the form, fill it out, save it, then attach it to an email and send it to area70corrections@aavt.org
District 2 needs financial support!--
AA Districts coordinate & pay for services to carry the message, with financial support from the groups in the district. District 2 expenses include Answering Service, Website hosting, Zoom accounts, Holiday parties, and covering other the expenses incurred by the District committees.

Groups in District 2: When your group discusses disbursing their 7th Tradition money, please make sure to include the District. To contribute, see the Addresses for Contributions block on the Home page.
2022-10-10: Thank you to all groups who have recently contributed! Our District Committees are very active, and your contributions are being utilized to carry the message!
We have been dealing with alcohol in its worst aspect. But we aren't a glum lot. If newcomers could see no joy or fun in our existence, they wouldn't want it. We absolutely insist on enjoying life.
Chapter 9,
"The Family Afterward"
Our Twelfth Step - carrying the message - is the basic service that the A.A. Fellowship gives; this is our principal aim and the main reason for our existence.  Therefore, A.A. is more than a set of principles; it is a society for alcoholics in action.  We must carry the message, else we ourselves can wither and those who haven't been given the truth may die.
"A.A.'s Legacy of Service"
Practically every AA member declares that no satisfaction has been deeper and no joy greater than a Twelfth Step job well done.
