The workshop will be held August 14-16.

Grapevine – Please keep on collecting old Grapevines to donate to Treatment and Corrections. If possible, buy a subscription it is a great magazine.

Treatment – Ruth – She needs volunteers to speak on Friday nights and would like to get a list of contact people. Her telephone number is 301-7889.

Old Business

Wayne said he talked to some folks about the Prudent Reserve and they all said basically the same thing. Be careful where the money is spent or groups will stop sending. At least ¾ of the group should be in agreeance. District can help groups but not with rent or coffee. The groups should be sending representatives to each District meeting.

New Business

George requested $250 to attend the workshop. The motion was made and seconded. The motion passed

Motion to adjourn and the meeting closed with the Lord’s Prayer.
