Seeds of Service Newsletter

The WPA Area 60 newsletter is published quarterly by the Area Committee. It is for AA members only. The opinions expressed are those of the contributors and not necessarily that of the Area Committee or Alcoholics Anonymous as a whole.

Paper copies are distributed to DCM's at each regular quarterly meeting for redistribution to AA groups through their GSRs. A PDF copy of the newsletter is available below. It can also be sent electronically to DCMs and GSRs, if the Area Registrar has a correct email address.

Varieties of Big Book Study Experience Survey

We hosted a Big Book group survey for all Area 60 groups to complete that are a Big Book Study type of group. This is for an article in honor of the 69th General Service Conference's theme: "Our Big Book-80 years 71 Languages", and we wanted input from AAs across western PA.
