Please help

Mellie has been doing a mighty good job of getting the meeting list up todate! But she can not visit all the meetings to see if the time and location are correct. Please check the meeting list on this site to see if your meeting information is accurate. There are about 200 meetings in the DEIG area and we need your help. The meeting list on this site is more up todate than the printed list. The printed meeting list is taken directly from the website lists. Since the last printing there may have been some changes.

Please send meeting updates to: meetinglist@downeastintergroup.org

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.
