Unity Day SF & Marin – Save the Dates

Mark your calendar for both San Francisco and Marin Unity Day!

These events are one-stop shops to learn about the wide variety of service commitments outside the group—a service fair, of sorts. All of the 9th Tradition service committees will be available with opportunities for you to practice the 12th Step … being of service to the alcoholic who still suffers – as well as to your fellows – and taking your recovery to the next level.

San Francisco Unity Day
Saturday, October 13, 11:00am to 4:00pm
Urban Life Center, 1101 O’Farrell St. @ Franklin St.

Marin Unity Day
Saturday, October 20, 2:00pm to 7:00pm
Unity in Marin, 600 Palm Dr. @ Hamilton Pkwy

More details to follow in the coming weeks!


Weeknight Orientations for SF Hospital & Institution at Central Office!

Coming up this year:

For those who cannot make it to our regular monthly H&I orientation on the third Saturday of each month, we are hosting some additional Thursday night orientations at Central Office, 1821 Sacramento Street @ Van Ness:

July 26 and October 25 at 6:30 pm

As you may know, H&I carries the message of Alcoholics Anonymous to the alcoholic who is confined primarily in hospitals, rehabs, corrections facilities & half-way houses. The commitment is to bring one meeting each month to a facility with a partner.

Volunteers are required to attend an orientation and to have six months of continuous sobriety.

Please join us and get involved in this amazing service!

H&I Leaps into the New Millennium

H&I is now taking contributions online!

The members of the Fellowship of Northern California can either send in contributions through the mail as usual, or they can go to our website, at https://www.handinorcal.org/contribute and follow the simple instructions to make a credit card contribution, either for their Group, or as an individual. They’ll automatically get a receipt emailed to them upon completion of the transaction, so no more waiting for our Treasurer to send it by snail mail.

We’re so grateful for the contributions from members of our Fellowship which make possible our mission of carrying the message to the alcoholic who is confined, and hope this makes that process a little easier.

Any questions can be addressed either to me, to our Web Chair or to our Treasurer at the Contact Us page on our website (https://www.handinorcal.org/contact-us ).

With a huge nod of gratitude to our talented “tech-spert” Thom H, who did all the footwork on this and to all the members of A.A. who make contributions to our Pink Cans.

Yours in service,
Karen C., General Chair
NorCal H&I Committee

When Old is New: Retro SF Schedules

Intergroup recently made the decision to go back to in-house printing for the San Francisco meeting schedule. This decision allows us to reduce the cost (from $1.00 down to $.25) and to offer more frequent printings.

View it HERE,

The outgoing booklet format was first introduced in 2004, prior to the robust website we currently enjoy and well before smartphones were commonplace and the Meeting Guide app (available free for iOs and Android) existed. With these tools now at our disposal, we one again pivot to meet the needs of our fellowship.

Are You a Skilled Graphic Designer?

All that being said, we have a request for a member with graphic layout and design skills to help us improve upon this “oldie but goody.” Please email aa@aasf.org if that’s you! And spread the word.
