Thanks to all that attended our recent GSR meeting and welcome to our new GSR member, John H. All members of CMA are welcome.
* All committees are in need of volunteers:
This was one of our main topics, and if order for us to continue our growth and reach the addict that is still suffering, we need to grow our committees. It doesn’t require tons of time, it can be as much time as they want, it does not require they come to our meeting every month, they just need to speak with there GSR for information or go to cmainla.com and send a message to the chairman of the committee they are interested in being a part of or join us at the next district meeting. Service is an essential part of recovery, one addict helping another, one day at a time.
