Whenever a society or civilization perishes there is always one condition present; they forgot where they came from. – Carl Sandburg
The Archives Committee is charged with collecting, preserving and presenting materials of historical interest to Alcoholics Anonymous. We invite you to join us as we continue our efforts to discover and celebrate the history of AA in Eastern Massachusetts.
A preliminary list of our responsibilities ahead includes:
sorting, filing and preserving documents already collected and held in storage;
gathering and cataloging additions as they arrive;
reaching out to Districts, and other groups in Area 30, with news and views of our service work and encouraging them to preserve their respective Archives;
recording Group – and Individual – histories, before it’s too late; and
sharing our Archives with you – so that we can “trudge the road” together.
Additionally, and perhaps most importantly, we invite members who have lived our History to share it with us so that future AAs might benefit from your considerable Experience, Strength and Hope. We’ll be happy to make mutually agreeable arrangements to meet.
The Area 30 Archives Committee meets at 7:30pm on the 3rd Thursday of every month at St. John’s Church, 80 Mt. Auburn St., Watertown. There are lots of old and new ideas for us to discuss. All AA members are welcome to attend.
