District 20 Announcements

Milestone Chips

Unfortunately, we are currently experiencing a fellowship-wide shortage of tokens and therefore the District 20 chip mailing service is temporarily suspended. We greatly appreciate your patience until we can resume.

MA World Services would like your help to find an innovative solution. The goal is to find a long-term sustainable solution to producing and distributing MA milestone coins that are ecologically friendly, cost-effective, and long-lasting.

We invite MA members interested in helping these efforts to attend the first Milestone Chips Ad hoc committee meeting July 31st at 11:30am PDT. Feel free to email to join the committee Google Group.

No Pot Potluck

September 10th District 20 is hosting our 11th annual in-person potluck at Kate Sessions Park! There is so much value in receiving a physical chip for hard-earned sobriety time and due to the milestone chip shortage will have a Chip Drive for anyone to donate “lightly loved” chips. Pizza and lumpia will be supplied by District 20, please bring a chair and something to share! (Time to be determined)

District Service Committee 3rd Legacy Elections
