SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES

The Districts of Toledo are called "Districts" because Districts 6, 10, and 30 in Ohio work together to share resources and support one another.  We support the 41 meetings in the Northwest Ohio area.  Some of these servicies are obvious - like Anouncements and Schedules.  Others are behind the scenes like our Telephone (response to our call in number) and Alateen.  See below for details

 

District Meetings are held on alternating Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm on Zoom from September through June.

 

Please consider giving service in one of these positions - this is STEP 12 at work - carrying the message.  Our Al-Anon declaration is "Let the hand of Al-Anon and Alateen always be there, and let it begin with me."  Disticts exist to fulfull this mission.
