A note from the Editor:

This is the latest issue of The Chelsea Messenger for Mid-Summer (Issue No 355) - out today which is for Mid-Summer again done in a digital format because of the Coronavirus to make sure everyone got one. Hope you like it, and please feel free to pass it on. This issue is also being put on the Internet like the last issue which was for summer to make sure that everyone can get one.

You will see that on the front cover, there is a picture of Dr. Bob's house at 855 Ardmore Avenue in Akron, Ohio where Alcoholics Anonymous flourished and then spread across the world. What an example which also reminds us of our own meetings currently being held 'virtually' in own homes, but as I said, it is still our A.A. home, whichever way you look at it as we continue together to trudge the road. All you need is two alcoholics and a coffee pot as it says.

There's a big thank you inside too to this year's Chelsea Convention as many members have contacted me to say how much it was appreciated, together with other topical contributed articles, on what it used to be like, what happened, and what we're like now with the emphasis on service which set them free. 

Kind regards, George P.

P.S. I am still looking for a few short articles please from your own experience on the following subjects and how it helped you stay away from a drink one day at a time.
