Christina has just over 2 years sober and opens this up as the 10 min speaker telling a bit of her story, she is followed by Gene sharing for the remainder of the time. They are sharing at the North Oakland AA Open speaker meeting held in Oakland California, this one is a Zoom meeting recorded during the pandemic sometime in 2020.

A quick side note to those of you that have been submitting upcoming AA events, there have been a lot of you lately and thanks to donations (Thank You So Much). I was able purchase some event management software to plug into the website to keep everything much better organized and to allow folks to search by event, location, date etc, I hope you will like it. I am still setting up and learning it, I should have it live shortly!!! Ill be emailing those of you that submitted events once I have it running so you can check your listings.

Along with that if you are in the area the 45th Annual Sacramento Spring Fling is happening February 10-12. You can register at the door. Details: https://www.sacspringfling.org
