If anyone attending our convention has any useful archive material please bring it along. I will have archive tattood on my forehead. Charlie from region will be there with his display, should be good. Also will have pencil and paper (remember me from SHARE?)
When he came home that night, his entire outlook had changed. He (Dr. Bob) was happy, and, like Bill, he was finally a free man. It was June 10th 1935. Now honoured as the date when AA truly began.
From ‘Pass It On’ p. 149
Gratitude week commemorates this key period in AA history.
At meetings near to June 10th some groups ask members to contribute a little extra (in addition to Tradition 7) to show their gratitude for the fellowship. The suggestion is for a single contribution, made at your home group, of the cost of a days drinking at today’s prices (subject to financial ability).
If your group chooses to take this collection, it ought to collected separately and sent to the Intergroup Treasurer clearly mark as ‘Gratitude Week Contribution’.
