FRIENDLY REMINDER NOVEMBER IS GRATITUDE MONTH

Many AA members express their gratitude for their sobriety with an Anniversary Contribution to any/all of the different AA Entities. Some members customarily contribute a dollar for each year or a penny for each day-some give more, some give less, all contributions are valuable. It is the still suffering alcoholic who benefits from your generous spirit.
