A New Meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous
Clean, Sober & Safe AA Meeting
Saturdays @ 6:30 pm at St Michael’s Church, 201 E Fir St, Fort Bragg, CA 95437
Clean, Sober & Safe is an Open Meeting, welcoming all who are recovering, or have a desire to recover, from alcoholism. Meetings start at 6:30 pm and last until 8:00 pm. Sharing is done on a ‘round-robin’ basis (so that every member has the opportunity to share.) No drinking of alcoholic beverages or use of drugs (including marijuana) is allowed inside or outside the meeting hall. Persons exhibiting disruptive behavior will be warned, and, if disruptive behavior persists, police will be called. AA birthdays will be celebrated whenever they occur (and when the secretary is so informed.)
Each weekly meeting starts with a speaker or a leader (who has signed up for this service) in a segment that lasts from 20 to 30 minutes. This person will be asked to take the segment that immediately follows them into account when sharing.
In week 1, a speaker will read and share on the step of the month (as presented in the 12x12) and invite discussion afterwards.
In week 2, a speaker will share on a topic of their choice, followed by discussion.
In week 3, a speaker will read and share on the tradition of the month (as presented in the 12x12) and invite discussion afterwards.
In week 4, a speaker will read a portion of the Big Book, share on the reading and invite discussion of the portion read. (The portion of the Big Book that is read is sequential, continuing where the previous month’s reading ended.)
In week 5, a speaker will freely share their story, followed by a period of open sharing.

Mendocino Coast Intergroup Monthly Business Meeting
The Eleventh Tradition (Long Form): "Our relations with the general public should be characterized by personal anonymity. We think A.A. ought to avoid sensational advertising. Our names and pictures as A.A. members ought not be broadcast, filmed, or publicly printed. Our public relations should be guided by the principle of attraction rather than promotion. There is never need to praise ourselves. We feel it better to let our friends recommend us."
The Next Intergroup Meeting: Sunday, November 11, 2018, 2:30 pm; at the Pacific Home Group Meeting Hall (Located in Fort Bragg in Noyo Harbor across from the Fish and Wildlife offices)
All members of AA are welcome to attend---All North Coast AA groups are asked to send a representative.
For info contact Chairperson Warren R. (707) 813-7235
