REVIEW: Meetings Open on Holidays

Hello Al-Anon representatives and members, 

With the holidays underway it's important for newcomers to know if meetings are held on holidays. The temporary meeting schedule I maintain on our website has a column to indicate whether meetings are hosted on holidays. The indicators are helpful year-round but the holidays can be a particularly stressful time for the loved ones of alcoholics. 

Please review the meetings you attend, meetings that are in your district, or meetings you represent for accuracy of the holiday indicator. Y in green font means yes, the meeting is open on holidays. N in red font means no, the meeting is not open on holidays. 

Email the website email account ( and I will make the changes.

>>>Let It Begin With Me<<<

Regards in service,
