Who will answer the Al-Anon hot-line?

Al-Anon has a Sacramento area phone number that newcomers call to find out about the program and to find meetings.  We need two more volunteers to keep this important service in proper operation.  One to schedule the phone volunteers, and one additional person to answer the phone.  Calls can be forwarded to YOUR PHONE.  Details are in the link below.

If you are a Group Rep. please take the details below to your meeting!

Details are in the following link ——>   Phone Service Opportunities

Spring Fling Update

Update from Steve O. on preparations for Spring Fling, and service opportunities:

These are the wheels that are turning so far: The speakers are lined up and in the program. There are also volunteers for the Alanon meetings and two workshops- also in the program.

Here’s what we need more volunteers for: Hospitality Room and Donation Drawing. Send any volunteers to either me or Isabelle and we will give them the whatwherewhen.

Penny G had the info uploaded to our NorCal area website and Carol K put the info into the Share and Care. Thanks for keeping the word out about the event. [ steveolaerts@gmail.com,   bellerocc@gmail.com ]

The event host will supply the Hospitality Room with water/coffee/tea. D6-10 Alanon will supply chips, snacks, fruit, veggies, cookies, popcorn, baked goods, etc. There may be pamphlet literature for others to read and take. A 7th Tradition can will be available for attendees to make donations.

Please announce the need for volunteers at meetings and at the two upcoming events (Soup’s Etc and D7 Speaker Meeting this Saturday). Invite others to bring items for the Hospitality Room and Route anybody to me and Isabelle who can stay in the room to welcome event attendees and organize drinks and food.  Route anybody who can sell donation drawing tickets before our speakers on Fri/Sat. We also will use volunteers as readers for the steps & traditions at our speaker events.
