To all the important people at Sobriety Group- the trouble makers-you know who you are-God Bless you, your sobriety, and the postions you hold-you need it. More important the group needs it because somehow you were give a position of power. USE IT DON’T ABUSE IT>>>>
The A.A. groups themselves ought to be fully supported by the voluntary contributions of their own mem-
bers. We think that each group should soon achieve this ideal; that any public solicitation of funds using the name of Alcoholics Anonymous is highly dangerous, whether by groups, clubs, hospitals, or other outside agencies; that acceptance of large gifts from any source, or of contributions carrying any obligation whatever, is unwise. Then too, we view with much concern those A.A. treasuries which continue, beyond prudent reserves, to accumulate funds for no stated A.A. purpose. Experience has often warned us that nothing can so surely destroy our spiritual heritage as futile disputes over property, money, and authority.
