New Service Position Opening

The ACA Oregon website is run by a couple of members who offer it as a service position. The time has come to pass the torch! The current webmaster will be handing over the site to the next webmaster around September 2016. We are currently opening the doors to any ACA member with 6 months or more of program attendance to step into this service role.

What is great about this service position? So many things! Here are a few that the current webmaster has gained in the last two years:

Learning how to operate a wordpress.com site (turns out it is easy to learn…even by someone with no previous website or computer background)

Getting to know about all of the upcoming events

Practicing setting healthy personal limits and boundaries

Getting the chance to contribute to the ACA fellowship

Practicing “business” with people who are working their recovery, where recovery is the expectation and connecting force between all doing service “work” together

The current webmaster is very happy to serve as a “go to” for questions, and to be a resource for hands-on training.

Interested in learning more? Send an email to acaoregon@gmail.com. Can’t wait to hear from you!

Campout at Stub Stewart

After the wonderful success of our recent fundraiser at Stub Stewart Park, we will be doing it again! Come join your ACA friends for a more mellow camp-out and potluck on Saturday, July 23rd through Sunday, July 24th to camp out with your ACA friends. This time around, we will have a handful of campsites and it will be a mostly structure-free event. Bring your inner kid and a dish to pass. Camping is $15 per person. There will be plenty of extra camp gear if you don’t have your own. See you then!

Campsites are hike-in (about .25 mile walk on paved pathway with double wheeled wheelbarrows available to carry your stuff). We will be at the Brooke Creek sites, accessed from the south end. If you have any last minute questions please call Guy at (503) 208-1129. Check out more park information here.
