District 19 DCM report:

 

Good morning Area 15, my name is Denniston and I’m a grateful alcoholic. My Home Group is the Bodden Town Seaside Group and I have the honour of being the new DCM for District 19.

Thank you District 8 for this wonderful quarterly and for the welcome you have given Chris, Bud, Kate and myself this weekend. It is really wonderful to be here.

 

The rotation of our 2015 officers came a little late this year however we have fulfilled the task of electing new officers and Cary in Registrar has been notified.

The past DCM, Robert F., sends his kind regards to Area 15 and wishes to thank you all for the honour of being of service for the past two years. He will surely miss attending the Quarterlies.

 

We have a new women’s group, ‘One Day at a Time’ which meets at 6PM every Thursday at the OO Clubhouse in West Bay.

 

The OO Group and the other Group meetings in Hell are thriving. The noon meetings have a solid attendance of twelve plus and with the return of the high season we have an average of two to three visitors each week.

On the last Saturday of each month the OO Group 8AM meeting has an average of 20 persons attending for a hearty breakfast following the meeting. If you’re ever in Grand Cayman, please be sure to look us up. We hold our meetings outdoors on the porch amongst the native flora, chickens, iguanas, and our beloved dogs Betsy, Toby and Shadow. The other Groups around the island: Elmslie Group, Bodden Town Seaside Group, the Spanish Group – (Grupo Nuevo Amanacer), Happy Destiny, and the George Town (Hospital) Group, all continue to do well with their ups and downs.


The Elmslie Group continues to donate generously to District 19, as do the OO, Bodden Town Seaside and Happy Destiny groups.

 

H&I report: The women’s prison continues with one meeting a month and the men’s prison twice monthly. We would like to increase our effort and do more in these areas, but we are not finding it easy. In addition we are trying to start back up a meeting at the Cayman Islands government treatment facility, which is not based on a twelve-step model, and also at the mental health facility. This will be our focus for 2015 and we welcome any information and support on H & I, and PI/CPC.

 

In November of 2014 we had our yearly Thanksgiving Gratitude meeting, followed by a successful potluck. The Christmas season went by quickly and we also held our annual New Year’s Eve “Alcothon”.

 

February of 2015 saw our 7th Annual Cayman Islands Roundup, ‘Sobriety in the Sun’.  There was a great turnout of over a hundred and twenty persons on the last weekend in February. Our amazing speakers were Katy and Charlie P., Theresa F and Sue D. (AFG) . They inspired everyone to look carefully at their fellowship participation and to continuously work the steps.

Our next roundup is schedule for the 26th  - 28th February 2016. We would really like to see anyone from area 15 who can visit for the weekend and attend the Roundup; we are only an hour and fifteen minutes from Miami International.

 

Next week April 10th to 12th   Martin, Robert, Colford and a host of other AA’s will be travelling to Cayman Brac for the 3rd Annual AA “Brac Attack” weekend of meetings, fellowship and beach bbq potluck. Thanks to Bonnie S. who keeps things going on Cayman Brac.

 

In closing, we would like to thank our past Delegate Don F. who was amazing with his love and support for Cayman AA. The fellowship in Cayman Islands extends its best wishes to you.  We also would like to extend a warm welcome to our new Area Delegate Graham G. and we’re looking forward to welcoming you to District 19, the Cayman Islands.  

 

Thank you for allowing me to share.

 

Denniston T., DCM for District 19 of Area 15
