The Leaf Rapids Telehealth will raffle off 2 book covers with the Serenity Prayer on it at Gratitude Day. We have no way of collecting

money as groups are so far apart. Proceeds will help the Telehealth group buy literature & pay expenses.  Carol’s allotment barely

covers expenses for her trips to Assemblies. One cover will fit the Paths to Recovery, How Al-Anon Works or From Survival to Recovery

& the other will cover the Daily readers.

Exciting Alateen Update – The Happy Trails Alateen Family Group is open for business for the rest of the summer!

Due to no members, the Happy Trails AFG was going to close for the summer unless there was a request from any teens to have a

meeting.  The good news is that there has been such a request! Therefore, please know that Happy Trails will continue to meet Monday evenings from 7-8 pm effective immediately.  Meetings @ 3 St. Vital Rd, Wpg (St. Mary Magdalene Anglican Church).
