For the second meeting in a row we were locked out of our meeting location at Still Working On It in Longwood.  A change of meeting venue was proposed and agreed upon.  Effective immediately, until further notice, sub-committee meetings will be held round robin style at the homes of the members that were present today.  The meetings will continue to take place on the fourth Saturday of the month at 3:00 p.m.  The next sub-committee meeting will be held on July 22, 2017 from 3:00-4:00 hosted at the home of Belinda Giddens.  It will be a barbeque pot luck style meeting.  Please RSVP with Belinda at 407-535-9241. The location of the August sub-committee meeting will be on the July agenda.

Event features discussed included a on-the-spot group orientation, dinner, dancing, karaoke and  Help Line/12 Step Testimonies.   We will try to establish a date and assign Ad-hocs at
