District 10 – NEWS

Hello all interested AA’ers in District 10. Hope this day finds you well.

Just a reminder that next Sunday at 1pm is the first District 10 Unity Picnic at Blue Limestone Park in Delaware, Ohio. Delaware Sunrise Group is also celebrating their anniversary at this event and group members have been heavily involved in planning to make it a great event. It should be a great day. Hope to see you all there!!

MEETINGS: District 10 work has consisted of getting information around meetings organized and published. You may have seen the green folded flyers containing meeting lists at many District 10 meetings and the blaze orange folders before that. If you notice a meeting is missing or information outdated, please contact We’ll do our best to get those updated.

DISTRICT 10 MEETING: The next district 10 meeting is scheduled for July 24th, at 1680 East Orange Road, Lewis Center, Ohio 1pm. We will be discussing the July 17th event, planning for a fall event, and other business related to AA as a whole. We will also be talking about holding elections for District 10 positions in the spirit of rotation. There will be positions of DCM, Treasurer, Secretary and alternates available. If you have a topic or just want to see how these meetings work, are looking for service, or like coffee and snacks, come on down!

Here is the minutes from the last district meeting.

Have a great day and be well!

In service,

Corby K
