BIG BOOK WORK SHOP                        Sunday, January 26th 1 p.m. –3:30p.m.

Atlantic Club 11827 Ocean Gateway,  West Ocean City, MD  21842

Come and learn interesting facts about our AA Big Book.  It is the 75th anniversary of the first printing of our big book and we want to recognize it with some fun and interesting facts. What was the price and how many were printed? How have the stories changed vs. 1939? Is it true that the basic text has never been changed?  Roger M., AA Historian from Bethany Beach and 31 years sober, will be our guest speaker and he will make it most interesting for sure. Dinner to follow($5). Don’t miss this one!

Sponsored by District 32 and Intergroup of O. C.
