    Ask It Basket: Snow Day?

    Q: How can I find out if my meeting is cancelled because of snow?
    A: We suggest meetings have discussions about meeting closings well before the winter months arrive. many of the groups in the metrowest intergroup follow city and town snow emergency guidelines and/or school closings. for example, if the meeting is in Needham, and there is snow emergency (no street parking), or if there are school cancellations (or after-school events) there would be no meeting. Above all, please be safe on the roads. and don’t eat. 😉

    Seventh Tradition Update: $5 Suggested Meeting Contribution

    In March 2019, the Board of Trustees voted toincrease the suggested meeting contribution to US $5. This decision was made to account for inflation and OA’s increased reliance on, social media tools, and other information technology to carry worldwide our message of recovery through OA’s Twelve Steps. Today, the Seventh Tradition of OA pamphlet has been updated to include the US$5 suggested contribution.

    Replace your current stock of pamphlets with the new version. Download a PDF from the “Group Treasurer Materials” section of the Documents pageat or contact the World Service Office for assistance in updating your translated version.
