Group reports

Hello from Monday morning at Riverpark! We have been going in on time in a panel of 3-4 members.  We carry

a clear message of Narcotics Anonymous.  We begin and end on time, come and leave as a group, and the

clients at the facility have been very receptive. Willingness has been good for Monday mornings. 

Very grateful to be of service,

Sarah W

The Monday morning 10:30AM Adult Short-term H&I panel at Riverpark is effective and awesome. The

message is being carried and willingness is sufficient. We average about 6-8 clients in attendance each week.

Some are more attentive than others, some are detoxing still. We focus on JFT topics and read out of the basic

text. There is a need for this panel and our service is appreciated at this facility.

Thanks for allowing me to serve alongside you,

Nick C.

Greetings from the Pinecrest women's facility. Meetings have been going in on time and

Grateful to serve, Kristen s

Greetings from River Park Adolescent Long Term! We are entering and leaving as a group on time. The clear

Greetings from the St. Mary's psych ward panel 

All is well. We have been there in time consistently, however, we have been about 5 minutes late starting due

to the facility wrapping up visitation. We have still been ending on time. Willingness remains stellar, to the point

where I have to schedule people weeks ahead of time. A clear consistent Narcotics Anonymous message is

being carried. I would like to request a few IPs, as the ones I had have been taken by facility residents.

Grateful to be of service, Josh A.

Thanks

Good day,
The Monday morning 10:30AM Adult Short-term H&I panel at Riverpark is rocking and rolling. The message is
being carried and willingness is adequate though this is a difficult time slot. We average about 6-8 clients in
attendance each week. Some are more attentive than others. I have seen some at open meetings afterward! I
was not in attendance at this month's subcommittee nor did I have a report prepared on time as I was
anticipating the subcommittee meeting before ASC as previously voted. I understand for now we are back to
the original time slot. Thanks for allowing me to serve the fellowship that saves my life.
Nick C.
The H&I panel continues to be well-received by the residents of Trenton House. All the meetings started and
ended on time.
The panel on August 23 consisted of myself, Gary M and Josh A. sharing. We read readings and the JFT
meditation, and then the panel shared our experience, strength and hope with the residents. Following the
meeting, we joined the residents on their back patio and talked for several minutes in good fellowship.
The panel on September 6 consisted of Josh B., Billy P. and Gary M. sharing. Josh B led the panel as I was
under the weather. Readings were read by the house members and the panel members shared their
experience, strength and hope. Following the meeting, the panel joined the residents on their back patio and
talked for several minutes in good fellowship. The next panel is scheduled on September 20 at 7 p.m.
Respectfully submitted,

  1. Subcommittee Reports
Activities
Greetings ASC

Good day, I apologize that I am not there (August 2016) to facilitate a subcommittee and I still do not have an acting subcommittee vice chair. Today my parents are throwing me a (not so surprising) surprise birthday party, fortunately I'll only be turning 50 once. Last month's report with the financial breakdown for our camp out was sent to Ryan D as an attachment and in standard e-mail text form. The bottom line financially is that I am to return $145.47 to our ASC treasurer (I have the check) and we continue to wait for a refund (which is past it's expected due date) in the amount of $384.00. I have reached out to Recreation.gov whom is the ones that received the reservation fee's and the Army Corps of Engineers whom offered us the option of still using East Lynn Lake the weekend of our camp out (even though it'd been under water the night before), I am powerless over the outcome thus far. Our next scheduled event is in October, either the 22nd or 29th, and to be held at either First Presbyterian Church or the Barnett Center, next month I will hopefully have a date and location cemented. Activities Vice Chair is a position that is always handled within the subcommittee itself, if you want to be the face of change step up, be nominated and accept the position because soon (like in February of 2017) In Loving Service will be upon us and it'll be the job of the next activities chair and vice chair to facilitate these events. Robbie C has acted as vice chair and I could not have pulled off the events we've had this year without his help and the help of many, many more. Be the change you wish to see within our area. I sincerely love the GTOANA, it's been a huge part of my life and my recovery would not have been possible without it. Any questions you have my number, just in case (304) 654-1305.

Grateful to be of service

Tom F - GTOANA Activities Chair 



PR

Greetings from Pr subcommittee,
Everything is moving along.  A successful flyer day with the next one to be announced soon. A new team was established, Liz K and Andrew V, to handle schedule day and communications. The literature that was purchased at the last Asc was delivered to first steps with out issue. Myself and Josh A also stopped by the needle exchange to stock up ips and we are in the process of printing off up to date schedules to be delivered there and to be used for the upcoming schedule day. We discussed and set a date to inventory the pr box so that we may determine whats needed for to filled so that literature will be more readily available when needed. Our Web servent is checking area email regularly if any home groups need an announcement add to the website send them to Gtowebservent@gmail.com. A couple issues were brought to our attention about the Google map links on the website not directing to the correct locations which is being addressed. Along with the meeting schedule on the resource site Help4WV is severely out of date and would we like this to be passed along to the regional service committee.
Grateful to serve,
Ashley F

Things are well at the Monday morning 10:30AM adult short-term panel at Riverpark. Willingness is
adequate; it's a hard time slot for willingness. We have averaged about 8 clients in attendance. Some
groups are more attentive than others. Overall, the message is being carried here and there still is very
much a need for this panel. I have found the experience so far to be very enjoyable. It is a pleasure to
serve alongside you all on the front lines.
Nick C.
Hni is going well at pinecrest. We arrive on time, together and leave on time together. The

Meeting is going well. We average about 45 people a meeting. We have been reading Ip's for a topic this month. After the addition of the new Wednesday meeting our meeting has decreased in attendance but it has provided more people the opportunity to share. We would love to see more established members help us carry the message. We have no donation this month.

All is well with the Basic Group of Narcotics Anonymous. The doors are open on time, coffee is hot, and we are slowly building up our literature supply.

We have no donation to area at this time.
