What’s New from the Archives of the Harbor Area Central Office

  • The Historical Documents contains the new Document -- Essence of Growth. Let us never fear needed change. Certainly, we have to discriminate between changes for the worse and changes for the better. But once a need becomes clearly apparent in an individual, in a group or A.A as a whole, it has long since been found out that we cannot stand still and look the other way.
  • We Need the help of AA Groups in our area to tell the Harbor Area Archives Committee about their group history.
    Please visit our Archives Page, for more details.
  • The September 2019 Harbor Light is published and posted to our Harbor Light Pages.
  • The Historical Documents section has been improved, to show easily accessible pdf documents.
    Please visit our Documents Page, for more details.
  • Speaker Tapes, in mp3 format, have been posted to our website.
