A Message from the District Archivist

My name is George C. I am an alcoholic. I am also the District Archivist. As Archivist, I am responsible to maintain the historical records of our District. Before I can maintain them, I have to collect them. We have been gathering and organizing a partial collection over the past year, but we are by no means done. Anyone interested in helping in this area is more than welcome.

Hi, My name is Chris T. and I am the District 42 Grapevine Committee Chairperson. We have the opportunity to promote the sale of Grapevine within District 42. We would also like to create a Grapevine Presentation Display for use at conferences and other large group functions. If you are looking for service work and also love the Grapevine, I really would like to meet with you.
Please contact me regarding this opportunity grapevine@aa-nia-dist42.org
Thank you and I look forward to speaking with you.

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
