The next Intergroup meeting is this Saturday, November 18th!

The next SA Twin Cities Intergroup will be this Saturday, November 18th. We meet at the Day by Day Cafe in St. Paul at 9AM. 

We will probably be in the back room with the large tables But we could be put elsewhere by the staff so please take your time to find us. Also be aware that because of road construction and traffic, some of us may be delayed in arriving. Much like some meetings be patient and wait until we will get there. 

It has been my privilege to serve as chair for three of the last four years and know it is time for me and the other inter-group officers to step aside for others to further their program through service. I want to make you aware of the chance that we might share a retreat with SAA in southern MN the end of February. It would mean a commitment of at least 20 to 30 of us to show up for a weekend and also share food. We could try a smaller venue but I would like a response from members to see if this is worth pursuing and I will need feedback soon. 

It is also possible that we could Skype the January SA conference Saturday session, more on this soon. I would like to thank Ron W and Jeff H for their service and help the past two years. It is my belief and hope that we will find new volunteers to keep our fellowship meet the challenges of recovery and help our members as we find a healthy emotional and sober life. 

Come for the meeting, come for the fellowship, but most importantly, come as you are and enjoy the company of friends.  All are welcome, we hope to see you :) 

 

Your friend in recovery, Mark P

An update from the Chair and Intergroup Meeting this Saturday morning...Feb 25th

posted Feb 23, 2017, 6:04 AM by Ron W

Greetings,

We will not be able to have a TC retreat this winter as I was unable to find a place that would house us for one day at a reasonable rate. I will continue to look at something for fall or next winter. I would encourage individual meetings to perhaps do a retreat for their own group. There are many whole house rentals around the state that might work for an overnight step workshop etc.


We will be dispersing funds for scholarships for this year women's national SA conference in Washington DC May 5th-7th. Please come Saturday morning Feb 25th to the Intergroup meeting at the Day by Day Cafe at 9AM. We will also be discussing the upcoming Marathon to be held on April 8th. I look forward to your input and service.


Yours in recovery,


Mark P

 

A message from the SA Twin Cities Chair

posted Feb 5, 2017, 9:22 AM by Ron W

Greetings,
 
I just wanted to update the TC members that we are making scholarship funds available for the Women's conference to be held in Washington DC in early May. Intergroup will hold a meeting in Feb with date to be announced for all female members who wish to take part.
 
We also are planning a retreat this winter in Whalan MN with a step work theme. It will be on a Saturday afternoon to Sunday morn. We will meet for breakfast and then caravan to Whalan at the Cedar Valley Resort. The program will start after we are settled in. We will prepare our own meals. We will have a number of beds available and cost will be more reasonable by sharing bedrooms. Because we have separate sleeping facilities all members can attend if they wish.
 
Lastly, no one stepped up to serve as next years officers so the current group agreed to serve another term. It is an honor to serve as your intergroup chair but I am done after this next year so someone else can enjoy the service. Please get back to us at the TC website or call me at 651-408-4755 about our retreat or the Women's conference funds .
 
Yours in recovery, Mark P
