This is subject to change, but as of this time our suggested agenda includes:
For those who are ready to step into some committee work, there will be open discussion about projects at this upcoming IG meeting, and your ideas are VERY welcome, especially at this time. We have experienced some shifting of positions, and where we might normally redirect discussion to being worked through committees before coming to IG, this meeting will be the exception.

With Thanksgiving upon us this week I have to say that I'm full of gratitude in so many aspects of my life. My ability to be full of gratitude even with the ups and downs and the rollercoaster of life, I can still see how blessed I am every day. I can attribute this to working my OA program every day and applying it to all areas of my life. I can handle situations which used to baffle me, I can let go of controlling everyone and everything around me, I can laugh even when I'm crying and most of all have so much relief that someone else is in charge. I take my Higher Power with me whether I'm going to a food-laden event, whether I'm going to be around family members which always push my buttons or whether I'm going to an important business meeting. My Higher Power rides with me in the car, holds my hand, listens and gives me lots of hugs. My Higher Power will be with me on Thursday when I'm around lots of food, lots of family and he will give me strength to look at the true meaning of Thanksgiving and what it's really all about…NOT the food!! What a refreshing way to live my life. Happy Thanksgiving all!

My heart is full of gratitude for everyone who attended the Fall Serenity Day in Kernersville yesterday. What a wonderful afternoon!
Thank you to Kristie the inspirational speaker from Raleigh. Wow! What an amazing program she works every day. She has a way of combining a no-nonsense sensibility with quiet compassion and understanding. Her commitment to abstinence is truly inspirational.
And thank you to Anne P., our Special Events Chair who coordinated the afternoon events for us – you are an amazing lady, Anne! This was exactly what we needed for IDEA day (International Day Experiencing Abstinence) right before the holiday season zooms into full swing.
And thank you to Lynne who coordinated the skit, and to Pete who stole the show!
Thank you to everyone who helped Anne put this event together and to everyone who shared their experience, strength and hope with the rest of us. Thank you to everyone who drove from near and far to attend. For all the ways service was freely offered yesterday, thank you!
Thank you for the reminder that
We are not alone.
