The Down-East Inter-Group Committee is a group of Alcoholics Anonymous members coming together in the spirit of fellowship to help carry the AA message by publishing a newsletter, sponsoring AA oriented social events, and distributing AA literature. We support communication and participation between AA members, groups and districts.
DownEast InterGroup serves Area 28's District 3, 8, 10, 11, 16, 21 and 25. These districts cover most of Maine's Handcock, Penobscot, Piscataquis, Washington and Waldo Counties.
The AA Preamble
ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
