----In rerference to recent outreach trip to
Last week, ten members of the LASCYPAA 29 Host
Committee flooded Hattiesburg's Saturday night
discussion meeting.It was one of those last-minute
AA trips that worked out so well we can't wait to
do it again. Ten of us piled into two cars and drove
to "Hub City" Mississippi, where we learned that
Hattiesburg AA is not only alive and well,but also
brings snacks to the meetings. Hello fun-size Midnight
Milky Ways and animal crackers. But I digress.On
the way there, we had a car meeting about the
solution.If you've never taken part of a car meeting,
it can be a really spiritual, cool heart-to-heart
about sobriety with a close group of people. It
pumped us up for the real meeting.We rolled ten
deep into the Saturday night meeting at Rebos,
LASCYPAA business cards in our hands, and
introduced ourselves to the Mississippian alcoholics.
As you can imagine, most of them were pretty
familiar with our city during their drinking
days. The meeting was a candlelight discussion.
When they asked if anyone was from out of town,
there was a chorus of ten people introducing
themselves as, "Hi, I'm So-and-So, and I'm an
alcoholic from New Orleans". That was pretty
cool to see.After the meeting, we stayed and
talked to the Hattiesburg AA's. They were very
welcoming and curious about LASCYPAA. It was
refreshing for them to see a large group of sober
young alcoholics. We invited them to visit us in New Orleans
and of course to come to LASCYPAA.The entire trip really
reminded us of what outreach is about. We grew more
unified as a Host Committee by doing this together.
But more than anything, this trip helped me realize
the hope that we can give to other groups by simply
showing up to their meeting and reaching out to them.
The hand of AA reaches out to everyone, not just the
alcoholics in the nearest vicinity.
