Washington DC Chapter [Del Ray Club in Bethesda, MD]

Hey all, me and a couple of others have been carrying the meeting up to the club at the Del Ray club, 7611 Clarendon Rd, Bethesda, MD 20814 on every Sunday at 5:00 pm.  The club is located in the Bethesda Presbyterian Church.  The club is in the back of the church. Parking's on the street. The meeting room we're meeting in is between the two large AA meetings that are happening at the same time... it's a smaller room. I think we're gonna get some signage so people know.

I wanted to throw this out there for anyone who was interested.

 

Thanks,

-Thomas

Hey Liz, 7611 Clarendon Rd,

Hey Liz,

7611 Clarendon Rd, Bethesda, MD 20814 is the address. Also yeah, it's attached to a church, I forget the name of the church. But it's the back. Parking's on the street. The meeting room we're meeting in is between the two large AA meetings that are happening at the same time... it's a smaller room. I think we're gonna get some signage so people know.

Lemme know if you need anything else!

Thanks,

-Thomas

Could someone tell me when

Could someone tell me when the next face-to-face meeting is in WDC/Bethesday? I know meetings are every other Sunday but I don't know when they fall.

Thank you

So, what time is the meeting

So, what time is the meeting over at Del Ray. I saw one posting saying 2pm and one saying 5pm. My homegroup for a sister fellowship is HJF in Silver Spring, MD at 7:30pm Sunday nights. I'd love to check out OLGA, but there is no solid time. My number is 2409388302, feel free to give me a call or text. Calling would be appreciated, as it is the best way to get in contact with me.

Thanks,

Blargley

Hey all,

I'm still more than willing to form up a meeting but I stopped going due to lack of attendance and it was a really bad time slot for me. If anyone wants to form up another meeting, please hit me up through private message or e-mail

Hello all- I know that an OLGA meeting is still listed on the Del Ray club's website for Sunday at 5 pm. I know I plan to be there this coming Sunday (1/4/15), but I don't know anything about the meeting's attendance.

I would love to see a meeting be formed at the Dupont Circle Club, whose AA and OA meetings I've been frequenting to get some twelve-step support. When I spoke to them on Saturday about starting up an OLGA meeting, they did say they had some open slots. I highly recommend the DCC over Del Ray, since DCC is half a block from the Dupont Circle Metro (Q Street Exit), and is very well-organized and has lots of friendly people.

A weekday evening (except Wednesdays) would work very well for me personally, but I'll defer to the needs of the group if they don't mesh.

Did anyone make it on

Did anyone make it on Sunday? I used to go regularly a couple of years ago. The location ended up not being good for me.

If there were a group in Dupont, how many people would come?

I went last Sunday at 1 pm

I went last Sunday at 1 pm because that's when I remember the club was last meeting each week. But there was no meeting. The pamphlet of the AA club that the OLGA club borrows a room from says OLGA meets at 5 pm on Sundays. I will try to go this Sunday at 5. Anybody on here know for sure they will go, or if the meeting is regularly taking place?

Hi,  Please stay for the

Hi, Please stay for the meeting. If no one else arrives, we ask that you take personal responsibility and chair the meeting. Ask someone from a different meeting to join you (this is called inter-mingling and it is allowed). There are many people who want to attend this meeting if we can get someone to "be there".

Here is a link to the readings for the meeting. Please print it out and bring it with you.

"I am responsible . . .
When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help,
I want the hand of O.L.G.A. always to be there.
And for that: I am responsible."

Should you want to hold a meeting on a different day or time, please let me know.

Thank you for your service.

Sincerely,

Liz

I would be interested in meeting, if there are still others that want to meet.

Can I get a confirmation on when/where the meetings are? Looks like there was a little bit of discussion about different locations, and I wanna make sure I go to the right one. :-P

ChuckMoney, the meetings are

ChuckMoney, the meetings are in the Del Ray AA meeting place in bethesda md. That is at the top of the thread, but it is hard to find and it is also not the "del ray sport and health club" in bethesda, which was a previous location long ago of that AA club.

Not sure if I am going today.

Is anyone interested in starting up a DC / Maryland group?

Hello everyone, my name is Steven Hassan. My family and I are in the process of moving back to Frederick MD after six years overseas. My daughter Fatin is, I believe, an addict (my poison is alcohol and I am currently in recovery). Is anyone interested in creating or re-starting this group? My phone number is 571-408-1944. E-mail is stevenhassan.2004@gmail.com

Thanks.

Steven H. Hassan
