Come join in with loads of other grateful recovering alcoholics, and help celebrate centuries of continuous sobriety with the “Old-Timers” If you want what they have, then do what they do. These Men and Women will be glad to share their experience, strength and hope! There will be hot dogs with all of the fixin’s, please bring a dish to share if you can.
As we made spiritual progress, it became clear that, if we ever were to feel emotionally secure, we would have to put our lives on a give-and-take basis; we would have to develop the sense of being in partnership or brotherhood with all those around us. We saw that we would need to give constantly of ourselves without demand for repayment. When we persistently did this, we gradually found that people were attracted to us as never before. And even if they failed us, we could be understanding and not too seriously affected.

The unity, the effectiveness, and even the survival of A.A. will always depend upon our continued willingness to give up some of our personal ambitions and desires for the common safety and welfare. Just as sacrifice means survival for the individual alcoholic, so does sacrifice mean unity and survival for the group and for A.A.’s entire Fellowship.
