Janet Allured, on behalf of The Byron Shire District of Alcoholics Anonymous
I’d like to inform you of a community event that your readers may be interested in. This is an invitation for members of the general public and professionals within the community who would be interested in information about what Alcoholics Anonymous is and does.
The goal of an Alcoholics Anonymous Public Information meeting and co-operation with the professional community is to carry the message to the alcoholic who still suffers. This is achieved in two ways: through informing the general public about the Alcoholics Anonymous program and through reaching the third person, whose work is or may be involved with the active alcoholic; that may include doctors, nurses, clergy, therapists, counsellors, solicitors, police officers, judges and social workers.
Alcoholics Anonymous are hosting an open public information meeting – the first of its kind within our community. You may be familiar with Alcoholics Anonymous, better known as AA. It is through the kind co-operation of many of our non-alcoholic friends and professionals that AA has now over two million members in over 150 countries. AA is a vibrant, large and growing fellowship within the Byron shire that offers a solution to alcoholism.
The meeting will be held on Friday October 12, 7–8.30pm, at The Byron Community Centre, 69 Jonson Street, Byron Bay,
