You’ve heard that one of the keys to recovery is service. Have you thought about taking on a service position, but too afraid to try? Whether you are new to service or you’ve been in a position for a while, the TEAM Event is for you. A TEAM event is a partnership between our Area and the World Service Office (WSO). TEAM provides an opportunity for you to learn more about service and the Al-Anon program.
The acronym TEAM stands for Together Empowering Al-Anon Members. When we work together we can do that. We will have workshops on handling obstacles, courage, spiritual giving, and more. Members from the WSO will share their stories and how service played a crucial role in their recovery.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how to grow in your recovery through service. More information will be available in mid-May, along with the ability to register for the event. Check out the flyers below.
