Secular Ontario AA Roundup
September 16, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 pm$35.00
The Secular Ontario AA Roundup will take place on Saturday, September 16, 2017, from 10:00 am to 11:00 pm and will include a variety of speakers, workshops, three meals, and a Talent and Art Show. There will be lots of fun and fellowship and it will be a day where all AA members and secular AA members, in particular, can gather and celebrate sobriety and the diversity of Alcoholics Anonymous.
Registration is currently $35.00 and that covers all three meals and the day’s events. It is helpful to register now as the committee has incurred some expenses such as hefty deposits for both the Hall and caterer so registering now not only saves yourself $10, it also helps the committee. All information and how to register can be viewed at the event website: SOAAR.
Joe C., a well known agnostic AA member and author will be your Master of Ceremonies for the day. Dave J. and Bill K., two members of Windsor, Ontario AA since the 1970s will be speaking and sharing their experience within AA, and how much it’s changed and how much they have enjoyed seeing the birth of secular AA in Canada.
Kevin H. and Evonne S. will be part of a panel discussing “Many paths to Serenity” and there will be a couple of fascinating workshops, one on How to start an Agnostic AA meeting and the other on Tools of Recovery. We know many AA members who have tried and/or want to know how to start a meeting and get through the hurdles that present themselves so this is a “must see” workshop! Tools of Recovery, especially without a God or Higher Power in one’s sobriety, will be powerful for all we’re sure.
An Art Show/Sale and Talent Show by the many talented members of AA will be something to look forward to and we’re told that a Red Seal Certified Chef is in charge of catering this event so you know that food will be awesome and for $35, how can you possibly go wrong?
Lots of highly acclaimed authors will be in attendance selling their books and literature. Authors like Joe C. (Beyond Belief: Agnostic Musings for 12 Step Life and the host of Rebellion Dogs Radio), Roger C. (A History of Agnostics in AA and Do Tell! Stories by Atheists and Agnostics in AA) and Bob K. (Key Players in AA History) just to name a few.
It’s time to soar!
We, the 2017 SOAAR Committee, believe we have come up with a terrific day for all of you to enjoy with your friends and family. We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, September 16 in Toronto and we anticipate it will be a tremendous day for all!
We have that flyer so that you can share the information about SOAAR with others, including members of your home group. It’s an event that is not only historic in terms of secular AA in Canada but also one that is meant to be an inspiration for all who attend.
Just click on the image of the coffee cup to get a PDF of the flyer. Oh, and once again, here is the website for the Secular Ontario AA Roundup, the best place to register to attend: SOAAR.
