Courtney G., Chair:

  • Huge thanks to everyone who contributed to an outstanding Service Support Weekend – committee members, organizers, on-site volunteers, and those offering rides, lodging, and meals. And, of course, greatest thanks to each fellow who came by plane, train, and automobile to join the gathering: you helped strengthen our fellowship and secure our individual recoveries at the largest service weekend to date (there were 250+ people over the course of the two days!). We look forward to seeing you and many others next year at the same location on November 12-13, 2016.

Our committee is looking to grow! If you are interested in doing some service, we are looking for members to help us reach out to High Schools and Colleges for new educational outreach sessions. Please consider attending our committee meeting at the next intergroup.

We also want to help outlying areas!
