May 2017 Assembly,
Hi, my name is Dorothe W. I am the Chair of the translation committee. My sobriety date is 1-5-
1997, and my Home group is Gales Creek Feedback group at Gales Creek OR. We meet on
Monday night at 7:30.
Martha could not attend this assembly, she has had a recent surgery on her knee and had to do
a scraping on Friday, that does not sound fun to me. She has been helping me a lot, with emails
and translating reports. Now that we have our computers and a printer, it has been much easier.
Karla has translated some events between the assemblies and we appreciate your help. This
assembly has been a challenge, and an opportunity to grow. First of all I was sick all week
before the assembly and I'm still not 100%, although better than Friday. Martha has our
committee printer, so I brought my own, and I forgot the cables, and after looking for cables with
SJ for 2 days I bought a personal printer, and spend Saturday night print all meeting reports.
The Printer Cable Worked with the old printer, and while setting this up, I saw that it is a
wireless printer, so any search may have been avoided. I guess I'm not as electronically
superior as I thought. So back to school for me. I still needed the power cord, but the printer
cable was not needed.
So acoustics has been a challenge, we've printed the reports for the business meeting this
morning so the Spanish speaking member can read them along with the speaker. So there will
be no missing parts.
I had 2 meetings with SJ to get the new computers, log in and try working with Windows, which
for me is another challenge, since I am a Mac user.
Thank you for allowing me to perform service work.
I’m Michael and I am an alcoholic. My sobriety date is August 29, 2001 and my home group is
Wood Village Men in District 11.
I do not have anything to report as far as presentations this quarter. I have been communicating
via e-mail with my counterpart Jenny, in CTF south. She is doing a great job. I look forward to
getting together with her this weekend and preparing for a busy season this spring and summer.
It is my goal to make it to each district ion the Northern sector of Area 58. I am looking forward
to scheduling presentations in this assembly’s speed service session. Pleas pay us a visit and
sign up. I continue to get new volunteers to sign up for Bridging the Gap. I have also been able
to make some referrals. This service is vital to ensure that people leaving treatment facilities
continue their sobriety in Alcoholics Anonymous. Thank you to all for helping to carry the
I continue to do service work in District 11. I have also enjoyed a lot of events in the fellowship
of Alcoholics Anonymous. I attended The North Coast Roundup in Seaside and the Rogue
Roundup in Grants Pass. These are great events.
I look forward to working with all of you this spring and summer.
Thank you for allowing me to be of service.

Report for Area 58 CTF South for this quarter ending May 2017
Greetings Oregon Area 58;
I have been working on scheduling and contacting DCM’s in the South service area of Area 58.
I attended the Business meeting with District 8 in Reedsport on March 13 th . Even though there isn’t
inpatient treatment in that District, they were very interested in ‘Bridging the Gap’, and there was
discussion about possible Treatment facility coming soon to that area of Southern Oregon Coast. Thank
you District 8 for having me.
I also attended District 6, 20 & 19 Service Palooza in Eugene in March. We had the opportunity to give 6
speed service presentations during the event. I was able to get many interested folks in signing up for
Bridging the Gap, and had great discussion about treatment service in their districts and within their
home groups. I was a wonderful event and the potluck was amazing. Thank you District 6, 19 & 20 for
I look forward to scheduling visits with the rest of South Area 58 Districts during our ‘speed dating’
section of the May Assembly in Roseburg. I hope to spend the summer weekends on the road to
Districts 5, 7, 16 & 17.
Thank you for letting me be of service.
Yours in Love in Service;
Hello Oregon Area 58,
My name is Joe and I am your PI North Chair. This past quarter has been extremely busy and productive.
At the last assembly I was able to connect with a few DCM's and get a couple district meeting presentations on
the books. I then had the opportunity to attend PRAASA in Sacramento. It was another wonderful experience,
as my service shifts in Alcoholics Anonymous there is always a ton to learn about my new position. I was able
to connect with PI chairs from all over the Pacific Region. I was able to share my experience and draw a few
great ideas from their experiences.
I began my District visits with District 35. I was excited to be able to give a PI presentation to their district and
discuss how they could help. They seem very enthusiastic about the possibility of giving presentations. I then
visited district 36, I made sure to give them all the information about our monthly PI&CPC meeting and the
exciting things we have going on. Thank you for allowing me to come and participate in your meetings, I hope I
was able to bring more clarity the districts in regards to PI work.
Speaking of our PI & CPC monthly meeting, we have a ton of wonderful services opportunities going on. We
had a goal to set up 5 new school presentations by the end of 2017. We did the first presentations at Canby
High School on April 20th. We spoke to 3 health classes and reached around 150 students. The teachers
seemed very pleased with our presentations and hopefully we will have regular presentations at Canby HS
moving forward. We are in talks with the Wilsonville Art Tech and are planning on a school wide Assembly for
the last week of May. To make sure that all of our presenters were prepared for the presentations. We held a
speaking at non AA meetings workshop on April 15th. The workshop was well attended and there was a ton of
great questions. Our committee meets monthly at the Wilsonville Library with PI/CPC chairs from District 37,
23, and PORCYPAA. We are working on a media strategy to begin doing PSA's in local newspapers and radio, we hope to have something going by the end of 2017.
I am so excited for all of the great work that the committee is doing, as a single AA member it is very daunting
to tackle this service work but as committee the possibilities are endless.
Thank you for my life,
PI North Chair
Greetings Area 58
My name is Cindee and I am your current PI South Chairperson. This quarter has been the busiest so far for
me. My husband was chosen to represent CPC South and we scheduled all our presentations together so we
could cut the expenses in half and double the fun!
Trip 1 – March 15, District 8, Sisters in Sobriety, Florence invited us to come give a brief description of what
PI and CPC is and how they could use it to create a service position for their group. We gave them a brief
presentation giving them some options to think about regarding what part they want to play in their community
of Florence with the expectation that we would come back and do a workshop and help facilitate with whatever
they choose Great group of women and we look forward to going back and doing a full-on workshop for them
when they decide where their heart is for PI.
Trip 2 – March 18, Service Palooza in Eugene for ICYPAA. What a great time that was! Vera and Jim were
also present and gave some great background information about service and their journey. The group provided
a super Potluck and we did round table, 15 minute service presentations. I think I only got stumped a couple of
times! Super questions and very focused and engaged group of young people in AA. There were some other
gray-haired folks there too, so it wasn't JUST for young people, but I found out it was for the young at heart!
Thanks for asking us, I learned a lot too!
Trip 3 – April 8 District 2 in Lincoln City. What a wonderful city and great venue. Potluck AGAIN! and the
folks were so fun and silly and engaging and we had a blast. After we did the job we were asked to do, they
also asked us to share our personal stories of recovery which is the EASY part for me and I was so honored to
be asked. Thanks for asking us, this job is so FUN!
Trip 4 – April 29 District 8 in Coos Bay. This is our home district, so it was such a pleasure to spent time with
our herd and also to be able to share some of what I have learned as your current PI chair. The focus of my
pitch this time was on "Speaking at Non-AA meetings" and I got the opportunity to do a new Power Point
presentation and everyone seemed to enjoy it. This was followed by… you guessed it, MORE FOOD! Taco Bar
this time. People know how to fill a room!
Trip 5 – May 13th District 1 in Tillamook at the Tillamook Serenity Club What a sweet little club there is in
Tillamook. Everyone was so warm and welcoming and I am learning that people LOVE literature! I bundled
groups of literature that related to "Speaking at Non-AA Meetings" and AA Fact file and people seemed to be genuinely interested in expanding their presence in the community. They had FOOD!! There was wonderful sandwich's and Tillamook Ice Cream!
Trip 6 – Myrtle Point District 30, Myrtle Point I am sending this in advance to get it to translation on time, but
we will be doing our pitch and then having a potluck!
So, Nine hundred and sixty three miles and 10 pounds later brings us to another fab-u- low-so Assembly this
Thanks for letting me be of service and I am looking forward to celebrating my 31st sobriety birthday with all of
you! 5-20- 86 since
my last drink.
Yours in loving service,
PI South Chair
Hello, my name is Teresa and I am an alcoholic. My sobriety date is 5/30/94 and my
home group is Surrender at Noon, which meets every day at the Alano Club of
In March, I had the pleasure of helping to lead a writer’s workshop with Lisa K.,
alternate DCM of district 26. The focus was to help members of AA feel more
comfortable with their writing skills by using recovery prompts to initiate free
writing exercises. Upon completion of the workshop, members were encouraged to
consider submitting pieces to the Oregon Area AA newsletter, The grapevine,
Portland’s intergroup newsletter – “Sobriety in Stumptown”, or to simply use the
workshop to benefit their own growth in recovery. Lunch was provided and the
workshop was very well attended.
Lisa, Ed Z., and the rest of the crew from district 26 helped to put on an amazing
event. They really have created a template to be used by others in the future. So if
you think that your district would benefit from something like this and you would
like to put something together, feel from to come talk to me and also approach Lisa
from district 26 for some great guidance.
This quarter’s issue of the newsletter is themed “Unity in Diversity”. There are some
truly fantastic pieces this month. One was submitted by an attendee of the
workshop in March. There is also a piece by Cindee S., our PI south chair, as well as
an article written by Lisa C from corrections. I hope that you will take the time to
read this issue from cover to cover, as there are some very heart-felt words included
that help foster unity in AA, and offer food for thought.
Also, please remember to refer to the back page of the newsletter for information on
upcoming events in our Oregon area. Among other gatherings, there are a number
of campouts and fun events organized by local YPAA membership coming up this
summer. Remember that these are open to anyone with room to grow and they
could really use your support. So take a look at what’s going on!
That’s it from me for now. Please feel free to contact me at my Oregon area
newsletter address. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Oregon Area 58 Hospitals Committee Report
Greetings to All!
Here is what has been going on this quarter with the Oregon Area 58 Hospitals Committee:
Junction City State Hospital
Things are going well! We continue to have weekly AA meetings, with 2-3 members of the Hospital Committee attending the meetings.
In April, due to patient request, a monthly women’s step study has been added to the mix of meetings.
Finally, Patients have been invited to the Emerald Valley Intergroup Founders Day Picnic (6/11/17) and the 4th of July BBQ. We are hoping they will be able to
Salem State Hospital
Things are still moving right along at the Salem State Hospital. The weekly meetings are still going, with approximately 3-4 patients attending, as well as 2-3
outside AA members.
We lost one volunteer, but have picked up another potential volunteer, who is currently going through the vetting process with the hospital, and will hopefully
be approved soon.
Sponsorship at the hospitals
For both hospitals, we have been getting requests from the patients about sponsorship. Thus, we have contacted the Hospital directors and have worked out a
plan on how we might be able to do this.
We are currently in the process of compiling a list, for both Salem and Junction City, of local AA’s that would be willing to serve in this capacity. If you are
interested in this type of service work please contact Chaz D. (hospital-co@aa- oregon.org) for Junction City, or Tim W. (firstname.lastname@example.org) for the Salem
On March 18th, we gave presentations at a service palooza workshop held in District 6.
On April 28th, we attended the Pacific Northwest H&I (PNWHI) business meeting. The point of attending the meeting was to give a short presentation and find
out what it is their committee is doing. Now we have a contact from this committee that we can use for people that are looking to take meetings into facilities
in the Portland Area.
As always, we are still looking for volunteers for both Salem and Junction City. If you are interested, please contact either Tim. W(email@example.com) for
the Salem State Hospital, or Chaz D. (hospital-co@aa- oregon.org) and we’ll tell you everything you need to know about getting approved to be a volunteer

GRAPEVINE REPORT GUS P 5/20/17
(the long form)
Hello Oregon Area! My name is Gus P and I am an alcoholic. I am currently serving you as your
alcoholic Area Grapevine Committee Chairperson. My sobriety date is 12/1/93 and my Home
Group is the Downtown AM Group in Eugene, where sobriety begins at 7 AM Monday through
Saturday each week. Please join us whenever you are in Eugene.
This is the unabridged version of my long-form Grapevine Report which will appear in the Area
Minutes. This expanded report is offered because the 3-minute timed Assembly Business
Meeting Report does not permit complete coverage of Grapevine topics.
Our 2017 Area business year starts on December 1, 2016 and ends on November 30, 2017. The
Grapevine Committee’s activities will vary throughout the year, based on the invitations I
receive and my ability to convince Districts to extend an invitation for me to make a
The Area’s second quarter was fairly active for your Grapevine Committee. This last quarter
started out with a fantastic road trip to the 2017 Pacific Region Alcoholics Anonymous Service
Assembly (PRAASA) in Sacramento, California. My fellow road dogs included my bff Chase
B, and my Bend buddies, Glenn B and Brad L. Brad did all the driving, mostly because he
didn’t trust any of us driving his wife’s car. :>) This was the first PRAASA I have attended as a
Past Delegate, and it was great reconnecting with the Past Delegates from the Pacific Region that
I served with at the General Service Conference (GSC); it was also an excellent PRAASA
content-wise. I thoroughly enjoyed myself throughout this entire trip. I love AA!
During this quarter, I also traveled to District 21, where I participated in the District’s review of
this year’s GSC Grapevine Agenda items. The session was very well attended and we covered a
lot of ground together. The attendees enjoyed lively discussion about this year’s GSC Grapevine
topics, while consumed some typically wonderful AA potluck food. We had fun and were
productive. All in all, another terrific AA event! Thank you Bruce L, District 21 DCM, for
inviting me to the review session.
Next, I journeyed to Winston, Oregon in the heart of District 13, where I presented on one of my
favorite topics – Sponsorship. Once again, this trip involved fellow road dogs; and since the
topic was sponsorship, my companions include my sponsor Angel, three of my sponsees (Tim,
Mike and James) as well as one of Tim’s sponsees, Robert. Four generations of sponsorship
among our little group; I was filled with joy and gratitude by their support! This event was part
of District 13’s May Area Assembly Host Committee fundraising activities; and it was a huge
success in my opinion. Everyone attending had a really good time and enjoyed a very tasty
spaghetti dinner with all the trimmings served by the District’s trusted servants and volunteers.
My thanks go out to our Area Treasurer and District 13 luminary, John A, for inviting me to
make this presentation. I had a ball and the food and service was so terrific that I even
momentarily thought about leaving a tip on the table. :>)
Later during this last quarter, the Area Grapevine Committee participated in a Grapevine Writing
Workshop hosted by the Emerald Valley Intergroup (EVI) Grapevine Committee in Eugene,
Oregon. My thanks to Randy S, the Grapevine Chairperson for the Emerald Valley Intergroup
(EVI), who arranged for this combined Area and Intergroup Grapevine presentation and writing
workshop for the greater Eugene – Springfield metropolitan environs; and who served as co-
facilitator for the workshop. The workshop enjoyed excellent participation from the attendees,
as we shared some wonderful and emotionally charged draft stories with the group. We were all
moved by the story-telling offered; and I felt like we touched some special places in our hearts.
Many of the attendees claimed they were not good writers – they were mistaken! The attendees
proved to be all very capable of writing and submitting an article for the AA Grapevine; and I
hope that some of them will do just that. More will be revealed here!
The Area Grapevine Committee is also scheduled to conduct another Grapevine Writing
Workshop later this summer. On July 1 st , we will be presenting in District 15; and this will be
another lively Grapevine event, no doubt. My thanks go out to Kira M of District 15 for
reaching out to the Area Grapevine Committee to make this presentation.
During this past quarter, the Tuesday Night Men’s Workshop continued its work on the Steps
using the Big Book Workbook. The 12 participants are taking this journey through the Steps
using the Big Book as our main literature tool, and we finished Step 12 and are reviewing
“Doctor Bob’s Nightmare”. We believe in ‘equal dignity’ for our co-founders. We have also
started discussions concerning what task we will take on next; there is some initial support for
reading, reviewing and researching “AA Comes of Age”. We have been meeting as a study
workshop since 1998, so it’s a good bet that we’ll continue our work. More will be revealed!
The AA Grapevine has announced that it recently published a new book entitled “Making
Amends”, which is available online for $11.50. The book contains eight chapters on our Eight
and Ninth Steps; each with up to 8 stories offered. These stories have been previously published
in the Grapevine magazine.
The new Grapevine Subscription App, from which you can subscribe to the magazine, is now
available on multiple platforms. You can access the magazine on your tablet or smartphone
monthly ($1.99 per issue or $23.99 for a 12-month subscription). You can download your issue
for offline viewing, archive past issues, get a sample audio story or selected video and email your
favorite articles to friends.
The AA Grapevine “4 Seasons of Service” Challenge, which began on March 1 st and runs until
the end of 2017, asks us to write and share our or our Groups’ experiences on various topics in
up to 300 words and include an anonymity-protected photo, if you'd like. Your story may be
selected to be published in a special service issue in the Grapevine in 2018. So far in the
Challenge, the Pacific Region is first overall with 11 submissions. For details about the
Challenge see page 7 of the May Grapevine or go to the Grapevine website at
There were three issues printed since our last Assembly. The March issue’s main theme was
about being “Connected” and focused on members and home groups. The April Grapevine had
as its main theme “AA and Treatment Centers”; and the May issue focused on “Diversity In
AA”. These three Grapevine issues published during this last quarter were loaded with wonderful stories about AA life and recovery, our AA Steps and Traditions and interesting discussion topics.
The March 2017 issue had many good stories, including one written by an Oregonian, my friend
Robert P from Amity, Oregon. The story entitled “Early Diagnosis” inspired me and refreshed
my recollections of serving with Robert at the Oregon Area. We are brothers in service. In the
‘Dear Grapevine” section, there is a letter entitled “267 Issues” with a photo included. The letter
and photo reminded me of a man I met at an AA meeting in Linden, New Jersey while I was
visiting my family over 15 years ago. I forget the guy’s name, but I’ll never forget what we
talked about and how this man with 30-plus years of sobriety was still serving AA. He travelled
around town with boxes of photocopies of Grapevine articles sorted by topic in his big-ass
Buick, giving away these copies to any AA interested on any AA topic. What a guy! He still
inspires me even after all this time. In the article “The Rowdiest Rockingest Group”, the author
put a smile on my face as I reflected upon my first AA home group which was wild, wacky and
irreverent. I love that the story reports that ‘The Greatest Group in the Galaxy’ resides in Maine
– good information to know! :>) The article” Connected” was inspirational and gave me pause
to think about what the writer said about maintaining long-distance AA connections. Lastly, I
liked the “Where The Winners Are” article in which the author shared his experiences searching
for a home group and the ‘Old Guys’ (OGs) who do it right. It reminded me of my early years;
and how, like the writer, my role now in AA is to stay sober, pass it on and fill-in behind the
OGs who are no longer with us. Thanks for the memories.
The April issue had two good articles in the ‘Alcoholism At Large’ section; one on substance
abuse statistics, and one on adolescent drinking. In the ‘Dear Grapevine” section, I enjoyed the
letter entitled “God Behind The Wheel”. It contained a nice story about our Higher Power
intervening for us when we might think that a drink is a good idea. Good stuff! I also enjoyed
the article on Tradition Four entitled “Cake Or No Cake” and its gentle reminder that each group
has its own personality.
In the ‘Welcome’ section of the May issue there was a paragraph from Bill W’s 1949 article
about diversity in AA, entitled “Who Is A Member Of Alcoholics Anonymous”, which really
spoke to me. This issue contained many excellent articles, including one from Oregon, covering
a wide range of writers who talked about diversity and their initial sense of apartness, their later
sense of belonging and demonstrating our Third Tradition at work. The story “My Belief, Your
Belief” was a solid example of the spiritual belief diversity in our Fellowship and offered an
excellent model to follow. “Holy Smoke, What Now!” is an article describing a Bill W letter
answering a member’s concerns about the ‘hippie invasion’ of AA. The letter was typical Bill
and made me laugh, smile and think. Thanks Bill! What a wonderful thing we have here in AA;
I’m all in! Former General Service Board (GSB) Chairperson Terry Bedient, a non-alcoholic,
submitted a wonderful article on diversity in AA entitled “Full Spectrum”. The article stressed
that the “…discussion of diversity is not disunifying, but rather that diversity is the pathway to
unity within the Fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous.” There was also a good story about a
member listening to a Fifth Step and identifying our common bonds of pain and our common
hope of recovery. The author described the experience as “…one alcoholic relating to another.”
Good Stuff! In the story “Not Sure Yet” Terry E, a Past Delegate from Louisiana and a great
guy I served with at the GSC, offers a terrific story about diversity at the home group. Terry hits
the nail on the head explaining how Traditions Three and Five work and what they mean to him.
I have been a Grapevine reader from my early sobriety and I love and cherish our little magazine.
Each issue seems to be filled with wonderful stories and letters from AA members who I will
most likely never meet in person. I always find something of value in each issue which informs
me and helps me tap into my capacity for compassion and spiritual growth. I love the “If Walls
Could Talk” section of the magazine, hoping someday I’ll see a photo of my home group’s
meeting space there.
Thank you, Oregon Area for this opportunity to serve you as your Grapevine Representative. I
remain extremely grateful for all the help, encouragement and fellowship I receive from all of
you; and I am anxiously looking forward to visiting your Districts throughout the year to deliver
either a Grapevine presentation, a Grapevine Article Writing Workshop or any other assignment
you may have for me. And as always, I travel well, work cheap and enjoy visiting you on your
home turf. Thank you for being patient with me and for the opportunity to serve the Oregon
Yours In Love and Service,
Area Grapevine Chairperson
Good morning Oregon area 58, my name is Shane C. and I am a
alcoholic. My sobriety date is Dec. 11 2004 my home group is the kiss
meeting that meets on Fri sat an Mon at the joyful Lutheran church in
Newberg in the amazing district 22.
So finance seems to be running smoothly at this point. Learning how to
do this job is way different then I thought it would be. It’s truly
amazing. last month the area chair co-chair and the finance committee
met at my house in McMinnville an put together the 2018 proposed
area budget request which you should have a copy of on your tables. If
you could please take it back to your districts an discuss it with your
groups. Then at the next assembly we can discuss it an vote on it at that
Everything else is going good. Thank you for the opportunity to learn
an stay sober.
Area finance chair.
Good morning, I’m Randy, I’m an alcoholic. My sobriety date is October 10 th , 2007, my home
group in District 22, the Saturday Morning Men’s Group. Business as usual processing. John
gets to spend the money, we get to tell him where to spend it. That’s our separation. The big
thing for Finance today, is on your tables you will find a proposed 2018 budget.
The first thing I
want to say about the budget, we had a little bit of a discussion as far as the difference number
on the left hand column. Some are going to think it’s backwards, unless you’re an accountant,
and then it’ll look right. The number is correct but the negative positive is not, as a logical
viewpoint. As far as the budget goes, we get the input, we develop the budget, we review the
budget, and then we approve the budget.
The review process is right now, between now and
September, at our September assembly. So I’d like you to take your budget back to your
groups. If you guys have any questions or whatever, bring it back to the September assembly,
we will then vote on that budget, or make any changes as necessary. If you don’t have enough
copies, there are some additional copies. That’s all I got, thank you.
Question on the budget:
Reilly: I just want to introduce the item for Delegate GSO Conference, is $3,200 and it’s now
been increased to $1,800, which we double, so I’d like to suggest that we make an appropriate
change in the budget to $3,600. But I don’t know if that’s appropriate to do. I’m just making a
comment, you might want to keep that in mind.
Area 58 Quarterly Assembly
On March 15 I attended the “Sisters in Sobriety” (District 8) group business meeting in Florence, Oregon to present information on CPC. I also provided the group with 5 sets of CPC workbooks and the brochures recommended by GSO for the professional community. This group would also like to schedule a workshop soon at the ALANO club in Florence for a full CPC/PI presentation.
On March 18 I attended a roundtable presentation, “Service Palooza” in Eugene, OR. This service event was hosted by ICYPAA -both Vera and Jim spoke prior to the presentations and we also enjoyed a great potluck dinner.
On April 8 I attended a workshop & potluck (always an incentive to attend) in Lincoln City to present CPC information to the District 2. I also provided District 2 with 2 sets of CPC brochures and workbooks. Cindee & I were then invited to share our stories at their Saturday night speaker meeting – “sharing experience, strength and hope” with other alcoholics – what a great way to end the day on the beautiful Oregon coast.
On April 29 District 8 hosted a workshop and potluck at the North Bend Alano Club which was very well attended. Service presentation for PI was done by Cindee S, PI Chair and I presented CPC.
On May 13 I attended an afternoon workshop (again with a great potluck) at the Tillamook Serenity club to present a CPC workshop. The group was provided with CPC materials, workbooks/brochures for their CPC chair in District 1.
To end the quarter on May 17 I attended a District 30 Wednesday evening potluck and service workshop.
