IDEA Day and Holiday abstinence

IDEA day is one of 5 OA holidays.  The others are: OA birthday; Unity Day, Sponsorship Day, and 12th Step Within Day. IDEA day is held in mid-November with the intent of helping us gird our loins for the upcoming feasts of gluttony.

The Westchester Celebration of IDEA Day is scheduled for Sunday, Nov 17th from 1-5 pm at the American Legion Hall, 215 Farragut Avenue in Hastings-on-Hudson. Park in the rear and come upstairs for the meeting. Flyer here: idea day flyer 2019
