2007 Notes: Anniversaries, Meetings, Special Events

Notes for 2009... 2008... 2006... 2005... 2004... 2003All Changes Since September, 2002

The latest main printing of our meeting list, done in a lively spring green, was released on March 14, 2007. All changes between the October 9 and March 14 printings are indicated in the list (with check marks and double-underlining), except for the two group closings given on the Thursday page.
     Corrections and changes after the March 14 printing will be listed below, as soon as we learn of them, under Recent Changes. They will also be added to the Thursday page of our downloadable printable lists, as they occur.
     Please advise The Editors of any such additions, subtractions, corrections, suggestions ... and, of course, if your group needs lists!

Notes & Changes

The Rainbow & Friends Group (Thurs., 7 PM) will be relocating on February 7 to 25 Victory Blvd./Bay St. (upstairs). [12-27-07]

The H.O.W. Group (Tues. & Fri., 4 PM) and Great Kills II Group (Mon., 7:30 PM) meetings are back in full operation. in their improved quarters on Cleveland Ave. Those who temporarily left due to construction-related problems ... please come home! [9-27-07]

The Young People's Group of S. I. [Wed.] returned to its original Open Discussion format on July 18, while retaining its traditional focus on early sobriety. Also, as of September 5, the group's meetings begin at 7:30 PM and run to 8:45 PM, a half hour earlier in each case. [7-12-07]

The Came to Believe Group has been added to the meeting lists. The group, which began on April 12, meets Thursdays from 7:45 to 9 PM at the Church of St. John Neumann, 1380 Arthur Kill Road. The format of the meetings is given as "Big Book-based". [6-27, 8-2-07]

Please note that all meetings at the Messiah Lutheran Center (1 PM, Thurs.-Sat.) are held at the Kroon Center, 195 Jefferson Blvd./Drumgoole Road East — not the pastor's residence at 174 Jefferson Blvd. This applies to the Annadale Group, Friday Afternoon Step Group and Steps by the Sea groups, respectively. [5-29-07]

New Meetings

After several years' experience, it has become our policy to add new groups and meetings to the printed and online lists only after they've been in business for a while, to be sure that they are viable, well supported and likely to last. In the meantime, it has been suggested that they could instead be included in the secretary notes, for the information of our members. They will therefore be posted here, if requested by the meetings in question, until definitely established.

     The Bridges & Tunnels Group (Fri., 10:30 PM), which first met 7/13/07, has changed its name to the Friday-Nite Big Book Discussion Group. The group now meets (as of 9/14) at Bethel United Methodist Church, 7033 Amboy Rd. [8-21, 9/12, /30, 10/4]

     On July 26 the H.A.L.T. II Group began meeting (Thurs., 7 PM) at Bethel United Methodist Church, 7033 Amboy Rd.//Page Ave. The format of the meetings is closed discussion of issues in sobriety, with a particular focus on problems with anger. [6-28, 8-21]

     The new Bridges & Tunnels Group has moved (as of 9/14) to Bethel United Methodist Church, 7033 Amboy Rd. The group began meeting in late July (Fri., 10:30 PM). first at Huguenot Reformed Church, then at Woodrow Methodist Church. This is a Big Book study meeting. [8-21, 9/12]

The Came to Believe Group, which began on April 12, meets Thursdays from 7:45 to 9 PM at the Church of St. John Neumann, 1380 Arthur Kill Road. The format of the meetings is given as "Big Book-based". [6-27, 8-2-07]

For those wondering why the ‘Foggy Bottom Group’ (12/1/06) and its many meetings at the Port Richmond ‘sober club’ are not listed here or in our printed lists, please inquire of The Editors.

    With regard to this 'group' and its effects – and one reason for the non-listing – several meetings in the immediate neighborhood of the 'club' are in danger of closing, due to defections and competition from 'club' meetings. Support is vital for the survival of the Early Risers (Tues., 10:30 AM, 8/24/78); Sunnyside Group beginners (Wed., 7:15 PM, 2/1/49); and New Hope Group (Fri., 10 AM, 6/14/77) meetings. The dates are those at which these groups began, and indicate many years of service to A. A. here. Please help turn them around. [4-27-07]

Please Note – Alcoholics Anonymous is made up of autonomous groups. The meetings a group holds are just part of its “primary purpose” (per our 5th Tradition) of carrying its message of sobriety to those who still suffer from alcoholism. Ideally, planning how best to do so is the “business” of our “business meetings”. For suggestions on how we might do so, The A. A. Group pamphlet is an excellent start.

All listings in these notes are by group, rather than the more common designation by location. This in part may help avoid the impression that we are affiliated with the places we meet in, contrary to our 6th Tradition. Better yet, we hope it may encourage members to become an active part of these groups — to join a group in the first place, or to encourage the groups in further A. A. activity. Along these lines, our A. A. expression ‘commitment’ might be transformed from a temporary job that we ‘take’, here or there, for a period of months, to a long-term commitment we ‘make’ ... to a specific, ongoing group of A. A. members.

We apologize for the puzzlement this may cause at first. Those used to hearing “St. Roch'” (Monday nights) and “St. Mark'” (Saturday mornings), may wonder what on earth the “Mariners Harbor Group” and “Good Mornin’ Group” might be. We hope the confusion is only temporary, and that the reminder that these are actually meetings of groups will in some way help our work.

Unfortunately, it must also be noted that organizations which claim to be A. A. groups, while severely violating A. A.'s Traditions, will not be listed as A. A. groups in any way, including in these secretary notes. The Traditions are too important to the well-being, and even the survival, of A. A. to be trampled on, no matter how attractive such a ‘meeting’ may appear.

Finally, you may have noticed that the Sunnyside Group met for years in Bulls Head, and meets in Port Richmond now – the St. George Step Group in Tompkinsville – the Pleasant Plains Group in Oakwood – and (our favorite) the Mariners Harbor Group meets in Port Richmond, while the Port Richmond Group meets in Mariners Harbor...in the very place where the Mariners Harbor Group began!...

No doubt there are reasons – which would be of interest to our archives – but don't worry too much. Wherever they are, A. A. works! Note
