About Area 81 Fall Assembly
The Area 81 Assembly consists of Area 81 Officers, District Chairpeople (DCM's), and Group Service Representatives (GSR's). The Assembly meets quarterly to conduct Area 81 business. Two of these assemblies are one day affairs, and usually occur in March and August. The other two (the Fall Assembly and the Spring Assembly) are weekend affairs, beginning on Friday evening, and finishing on Sunday morning. These weekends normally include AA meetings in both English and French, workshops, a banquet, and a dance.
In order to host either the Fall or Spring Assembly, a district must follow the guidelines as set out in the Area 81 Service Structure and Operating Handbook, which can be found on the Area 81 website. Ditricts wishing to host an assembly must formally bid for the event, and must include a feasibility study. The Assembly then votes, with the majority votes being awarded the Assembly.
The Area 81 Fall Assembly will be held at the Park Royal United Church. In the mid 1950’s when the congregation of Trinity United Church in downtown Charlottetown was literally bursting out of its physical facilities, it came as quite a shock when their minister Rev. Frank MacLean first suggested that the members of its congregation on the eastern side of the railway tracks might consider forming a congregation of their own to fulfill the needs of the Parkdale, Central Royalty and East Royalty communities.
The Area 81 Fall Assembly starts Friday, October 21st and ends on Sunday October 23rd. Duriing that time, there will be AA meetings, Al-Anon meetings, workshops, a banquet, and a dance.
Oh....and lots of coffee!!!!
So, come join us for a weekend of fun, fellowship, and laughter. You won't regret it!
