THE PROGRAM WILL FOCUS ON VARIOUS ASPECTS OF OA UNITY
Unity Day reaffirms the love and understanding shared by members of our Fellowship – with an emphasis on Tradition One:
“Our common welfare should come first; personal recovery depends on OA unity.”
Unity Day is observed by OA worldwide with a moment of silence at 11:30 a.m. PT. on the last Saturday of February in even years and the last Sunday of February in odd years.
At our Louisville Metro Intergroup Unity Day program we will pause at 2:30 p.m. ET for a moment of silence to reaffirm the strength inherent in OA’s unity. Even if you can’t attend the celebration you are encouraged to pause, too, as a personal commitment to unity and to feel connected to the Fellowship.
Bring your own beverage if desired 7 th Tradition will be collected Hosted by the Sunday 2 p.m. Meeting

This is Jenny L, writing on behalf of the Saturday 10 AM meeting at the YMCA in New Albany.
At a group conscience meeting this morning, members of the meeting decided to CLOSE AS A PUBLIC MEETING for the next 15 weeks. We have cancelled our meeting listing on the World, Region, and LMI websites. Please cross our meeting off any 12-Steppers you hand out to newcomers.
While we will be closed to the public, six regular members of the meeting committed to meet from 10 AM to 12 PM each Saturday morning at the New Albany YMCA while we work through the 12-Step Workshop and Study Guide. Our plan is to re-open as a public meeting when we have worked through the 12 Steps and have more recovery to offer. That re-opening will be in mid-November.
Anyone who is interested in working through the 12-Steps
by using the 2016 Twelve-Step Work Shop and Study Guide manual
is welcome to join us for the Introductory Session on Saturday, July 28.
YMCA – Community Room (to the left of the Y desk on the first floor)
33 State Street, New Albany, IN
Introductory Session: July 28, 10 AM to 12 PM, is required for membership
followed by commitment for 15 weeks of two hour meetings 10 AM to 12 PM
Please announce the closing of the public meeting with the invitation to join the private study group at your meetings this week. We are following the directions in the study guide that no new members may join the study group after the Introductory Session. The study guide says that 4 to 12 is a good group size. We are now six, so you welcome to join us!
Please text me at 502 645-9726 if you have any questions.
Sunday, March 25th, nine OA members at the meeting held a group conscience about continuing the meeting or disbanding it. It was decided to keep the meeting active for now
and hold another group conscience on April 29th.
The meeting needs your support.
The treasurer will be leaving the city and the meeting needs an intergroup rep. Just attending the meeting would be great way to do service.
If someone could do service by being
the treasurer or intergroup rep that would be wonderful.
People that attend the meeting occasionally have commented that they would miss having a daytime Sunday meeting option.
