Dear South Jersey Intergroup,

On a snowy Saturday, Jan. 7th, we had a great discussion at our Intergroup meeting. As a follow up to some of the things discussed, please see below for more information on:

1) World Service Announcement of OA’s Official Facebook Page (see below) 1a) Issuance of the Guidelines for Anonymity in the Digital World – you can find it here – https://oa.org/whats-new/ or download the PDF (OA Guidelines for Anonymity)

Have a blessed abstinent day!
