Currently, Marie B, Audrey G, Jennifer B and myself are on the trustee board for SJIS. I think we all would say it has been a growing experience to do Al-Anon work for our South Jersey community. I owe so much to Al-Anon for the life I live today and I understand that Al-Anon cannot continue to help folks like me without an active volunteer force. Service has made me feel more a part of Al-Anon as a global community.
We are in need of a Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, Public Outreach Trustee and a Group Services Trustee for next year. I will step down as Chair as of November 1, 2015 and will become Past Chair in order to help new members who are joining the board. All of our current trustees are willing to put in any time necessary to train new volunteers. Please consider giving some time back to Al-Anon in an SJIS position. Liz M., SJIS Chair
~~~ SJIS LUNCHEON UPDATE ~~~
We are up to 28 reservations. The deadline for ordering flowers and telling the venue what to plan is looming over us. With all the enthusiasm we received, we ordered a large room. We’re on our way but far from our goal of 150. Your help yp send in registrations is appreciated. The more participants, the more colorful flowers we can get. Please encourage your fellow members to join you for a wonderful time of fellowship. Remember, you need to take care of yourself, also. This is SJIS' only fundraiser. Your support is appreciated. Audrey G
