CHAIR’S REPORT

Courtney G., Chair: eaichair@foodaddicts.org

  •  Plans are well underway for the next Service Support Weekend, November 12-13, 2016 at the Holiday Inn in Dedham, MA. Want to volunteer? Contact eaiservicegroupsupport@foodaddicts.org. Financial aid inquiries should go to eaifinancialaidandres@foodaddicts.org.

  • Reminder: EAI hosts a Literature Table at our monthly meetings, where you can pick up literature for yourself or your meetings. If you would like to pre-order literature for pick up, please email eaiservicegroupsupport@foodaddicts.org.

  • The Public Information Committee encourages meetings to donate a copy of the FA book to a local library, school, or doctor. 

  • From the 12th Step Committee: Do you enjoy meeting new people? Do you enjoy traveling with FA fellows? Maybe your FA group should consider a road trip to support another FA meeting! It is great fun, well worth the time and effort and is guaranteed to make your FA program stronger. Contact eai12step@foodaddicts.org with any questions.

  • On a personal note: it is such a blessing to be abstinent in the hot weather. I remember traveling back, at about 6 weeks of abstinence, from my weekly combo of AWOL/FA meeting/fellowship lunch in Chelsea, MA. On that sticky August afternoon, as I waited for the ferry boat back to Martha’s Vineyard, it seemed EVERYONE was eating cold treats and I was absolutely certain that I would have a break. That was the first time I sincerely asked for help on my knees. Of course, the painful cravings were lifted, and I put an abstinent head on my pillow that night, thanks to my higher power and FA. I wish each of you an abstinent, grateful, and service-filled summer.
