Tarrytown Meeting — Street Fair 6/3/18 — parking advice

There will be a street fair in Tarrytown 6/3/18.  We will still have the meeting, but you may have trouble with parking.

In previous years, people have been able to park in the school parking lot behind Washington Irving School. Also, you can park at the Tarrytown Train station.  It’s not too far, if you want to walk up the hill a bit.

It’s a wonderful fair, btw.

The World Service Office: What does It have to do with me?

Located in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, USA, the WSO exists to support individual members and OA’s thousands of groups worldwide, as well as to carry our message of recovery to compulsive overeaters who are still suffering.

We produce over 100 literature and recovery-related items and podcasts, and maintain oa.org and an online bookstore. We publish Lifeline, a recovery magazine, made up of stories written by and for the OA member. We distribute A Step Ahead newsletter quarterly and a monthly email bulletin to keep members up-to-date on OA happenings. The WSO hosts the annual World Service Business Conference and sponsors the World Service Convention every few years.

We maintain directories on meetings all across the world and answer newcomer and member inquiries. In addition, we provide new groups with everything they need to get started. We also give information about OA to media representatives, health professionals, and others interested in OA’s Twelve-Step approach to recovery from compulsive overeating.

Although there are no dues or fees for members, the WSO is funded through literature sales and through your contributions.  In keeping with OA’s Seventh Tradition, we are member-supported. So, when the basket is passed in meetings, keep in mind that you are supporting your own recovery by helping to maintain your group, intergroup or national/language service board, region and World Service Office.

Here at the WSO, “service” is our middle name, and we belong to you. Contact us if you have a question.

Welcome to OA. Welcome home!
