The Central Office has received inquiries about a flyer making the rounds promoting a particular recovery-related business. This flyer did not come from Central Office.
While Tradition 4 assures the autonomy of each group, at the same time, groups should be cautious about promoting non-AA related entities. Even an flyer in a group’s folder can offer the appearance of endorsement or affiliation, especially to newcomers. Tradition 6 states:
6. An A.A. group ought never endorse, finance or lend the A.A. name to any related facility or outside enterprise, lest problems of money, property and prestige divert us from our primary purpose.

COR’s are reminded that the meeting today (at the Pink Building) is at 4 pm, rather than 6 pm, as in the past. And group sign-ups are still being accepted/encouraged for the Central Office “Anything-Over-Rice Cook-off”, to be held on October 7th at St. Barnabas Church.
