 All Changes Since September, 2002 

We are now able to print current meeting lists in batches of 50/$5. To order lists for your group or yourself, call (718) 727-7119, or e-mail the editors at s.i.meetings@gmail.com. You are also free to print your own after downloading this. And, of course, you can always find the latest meeting information online here.

    Recent meeting changes are noted in the printed lists, and will also be announced below, as soon as we learn of them, under Recent Changes. Please advise the editors of any such additions, subtractions, corrections, suggestions ... and, of course, when your group needs lists.

    For those who can use them, printable secretary notes can be downloaded here – not as colorful as this page, but much easier to work with.

    Sections in these pages marked with a  Note  contain extra information. Simply place your cursor for a moment on the  Note  ... (Works best with the free Opera browser.)

Recent Notes & Changes

The New Dorp Group (Sat., 10:30 PM), has reopened after being closed for building repairs since mid-July. [7/23, 8/1, 8/10]

The Came To Believe Group (Thurs, 7:45 PM), has since August 1 been holding a beginners meeting as well, from 6:30-7:30 PM, at the same location (Church of St. John Neumann, 1380 Arthur Kill Rd.) [8/20]

The Rainbow and Friends Group (Thurs., 7 PM) moved August 6 to the Unitarian Church, 312 Fillmore St./Clinton Ave. They also returned to their original Open Discussion format at that time. [7/6, /8, 8/20]

'The Family Afterwards' Group (Friday evenings, SIUH South) has permanently changed the starting time of its meetings to 7 PM, as of April, 2009. [5/3, 7/6, 9/20]

The Lunchtime Beginners Group (Thurs., 1 PM) began meeting March 19 at the YMCA Counseling Center, 3911 Richmond Ave./Amboy Rd. (2nd floor), and was added to the meeting lists July 4. [3/14, /19, 7/5]


Meeting Listing Policies and Practices

The Friday night (10:30 PM) meeting at Bethel Methodist Church in Tottenville, which began last July, has been removed from our meeting lists, in part due to the actions of its 'leaders' in recently creating their own highly deceptive 'website' ... and then stealing the secretary notes from this page, to give themselves a more legitimate appearance. For those interested in full details, please e-mail s.i.meetings@gmail.com. [6/27/08]

For those wondering why the ‘Foggy Bottom Group’ (12/1/06) and its many meetings at the Port Richmond ‘sober club’ (12/1/06) are not listed here or in our printed lists, please inquire at s.i.meetings@gmail.com". [1/26/07]

 Note on 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.

Please Note – Alcoholics Anonymous is founded on its 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!..  Note
