District  Meeting Lost and Found, Boulder City, NV 10:15 AM February 8, 2015

Serenity Prayer followed by the reading of the GSR preamble.

I.               Minutes: Approved

II.              Treasurer’s Report

Vonda did not have a report for this month; will give a full report next month. Being new, Vonda is working on getting the checking account signatures in place and clearing up questions she has on last month’s report.

Discussion question: difference between contribution and donation. Contribution, generally, comes from a group; donation, generally, comes from an individual. How do groups contribute to District Treasury?

Question regarding expenses for Tonopah. Financial help can be requested from District 1 ($50); SAGSC ($75); Area 42 ($50). Individual groups, if financially able, support each GSR’s attendance at Tonopah.

III.            Committee Reports

A.             Picnic: Brigit

Picnic scheduled for October 10, 2015, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Reminder that gifts are needed for the raffle. Last year we did not have enough gifts. We should ask our groups to contribute a gift. We’d like to have a face-painter if possible.

B.             Workshops: Libby

Suggestions for three workshops: 1) Recovery, 2) Unity and 3) Service.

Recovery: March 21 was selected as the date. Will include speakers and question panel—focus for newcomers and the value of sponsors, including service sponsorship—have handouts. Location: suggest one of the clubhouses (they attract newcomers).

Unity: June 13 or June 20. June suggested having it follow Founders Day. Suggest topic should be singleness of purpose as a result of the lessons learned through AA history. Do this with another District and/or Archives. Location: the other district’s location or Central Office to include the archives room.

Service: (“Service in Action”) October 11 suggested and discussed. Idea is to invite people to 10:15 meeting to watch service in action. For this year, make it inside the group and district; next year make it outside the group and district. Have group and district service level speakers and question panel. Location: Lost & Found Group? May be too small.
