Alkathon – Time Slots

To All Groups,

The Alkathon will be here soon and we know your groups want to participate.

Attached is a sign-up sheet for time-slots for the Alkathon.  In the event of ties for time-slots we will have a drawing.

The drawing/sign-up will take place at our next District 26 meeting which will be November 19th from 9:30-11:00am at the New Life Church in Gahanna.

Please discuss this with your group, choose your favorite time-slots and either send a representative to the District meeting on the 19th, or give your completed sheet to a member of the District (you can also scan & email a copy).

We’re having the same DJ as last year, and the same great AA groups hosting meetings, so we know this will be a super fun event.

In Loving Service,

District 26 – Contributions Mailing Address

The District 26 Webpage on the Area 53’s website now includes the mailing address for District 26 group contributions.  Further, there is a convenient piece titled Self-Support:  Where Money and Spirituality Mix that has been updated with the mailing addresses for each of the AA entities.  This might be a helpful resource for new group treasurers.  Of course, the percentages listed were taken from the AA pamphlet with the same name – your group should decide what actual percentages are appropriate for you.  AA appreciates all you do in support of our fellowship.

In Humble Service,
Mike M, DCM, District 26
