November is Gratitude Month!
Gratitude Month is a time set aside, each November, for us to express thanks to the Fellowship. In the Bay Area, this is traditionally practiced by passing the 7th Tradition basket a second time, with the entirety of the collection from the second basket being contributed to Central Office**. However, groups around the country and around the world each have their own customs for celebrating Gratitude Month, including holding Tradition discussion meetings in place of the regular format, or by making “gratitude” the discussion topic during the month.
There is no proscribed manner for celebrating Gratitude Month. Groups are encouraged to come up with their own imaginative ways to foster an attitude of gratitude among the fellowship. How will your group celebrate this November?
**Please Note: for Group or Individual contribution, include “Gratitude Month” on the memo line of your check or in the Notes field online, so that it will be properly recorded.
