If your group would like to chair one, please contact us with (1) the name of your group, (2) the type of meeting (Speaker or Discussion) and (3) the holiday (Christmas or New Years) you would like to be considered for. A lottery will be held after our December 3rd meeting to ﬁnalize the schedule. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or scroll down to the bottom of the page to fill out the online form.
We appreciate food donations. If possible, please let us know in advance if you are bringing any big ticket items, such as hams, turkeys (no stuﬃng), mashed potatoes, cooked vegetables, salads and sandwiches. Desserts are always welcome. Food may be delivered from 9 AM onwards Christmas and New Years Eve.
Your ﬁnancial assistance ensures our expenses are covered. All excess funds are dispersed to Intergroup and Districts after the event. Group and individual contributions are accepted. Cheques made out to Ottawa Area Alkathon may be mailed to or dropped oﬀ at the Intergroup oﬃce, or you may contact us to make alternate arrangements.

Volunteer! Volunteer! Volunteer!
What makes Alkathon amazing is not the venue, not the food, but the people! 12-Step volunteers, coﬀee-makers, clean up crew, kitchen and serving help, security, and greeters are part and parcel of what makes our annual event a spiritual experience for so many. So please round up some volunteers at your home group – gather names, email and phone numbers, and note desired volunteer positions. Email your list to email@example.com. Individuals can also use the online form below.
Planning meetings are being held at the Bronson Centre. To join the committee, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Meeting dates and times will be provided.
All AA and Al-Anon members are welcome. We appreciate your support!
