Have you joined the Birthday Club?

Send in one dollar for every year of sobriety, and on your A.A. birthday Palm Beach County Intergroup will send you a special Bill and Bob anniversary coin. Of course, you are free to send in more, and if you can, what a wonderful way to support Intergroup. (With today’s prices, it is amazing that they can still do this for only $1 per year of sobriety!)

As a member of the Birthday Club, your name will be printed in the Today newsletter in the month of your anniversary. Send your donation via Zelle or mail a check to Intergroup. Remember to do this each year to keep getting your special anniversary coin. Click here for further instructions.

Having been dubbed, “A.A.’s Meeting in Print,” the Grapevine is a great resource to have on hand for getting through a rough spot in sobriety. With a different theme every month, this International Journal of Alcoholics Anonymous has something for everyone. Click here to go to aagrapevine.org to check it out.

I can watch my serenity level rise when I discard my expectations. But then my “rights” try to move in, and they too can force my serenity level down. I have to discard my “rights,” as well as my expectations, by asking myself, How important is it, really? How important is it compared to my serenity, my emotional sobriety? And when I place more value on my serenity and sobriety than on anything else, I can maintain them at a higher level – at least for the time being.

When it comes to buying your literature, cards and medallions, please support your local Intergroup and purchase these items whenever you can, directly from Intergroup. All items are competitively and fairly priced. Best of all, supporting Intergroup supports local A.A.

We understand the attraction of simplicity and ordering online, however, supporting local groups, is simply more attractive. So until we get an online store set up, head on down and say Hi to the friendly folks at Intergroup. You will be glad you did!
