 A Message from our newly elected
 Midpeninsula Intergroup Chair:

"Hello, my name is Kathy M.  I am your new Intergroup Chair. A special thank you to Lynn K, the outgoing Chair, for two years of great leadership. Also, thank you to all the board members and Intergroup reps for all the good work they did.

Mid-Peninsula Intergroup is an active group. The Recovery Connection is published monthly.  Our website is maintained current and available to all.  We provide three special programs each year for all to attend. We send representatives to Region 2 Assembly Meetings and the World Service Business Conference.  And, we do much more.

Your Intergroup could use more help.  There are open positions on the Board. We are requesting more representation at the monthly Intergroup meeting which is held on the first Saturday of each month for one hour starting at 8:30 AM. If the regular meeting(s) you attend have an Intergroup Rep., please remind them to attend the meeting. 

Most Important – if your meeting does not have an Intergroup Rep, encourage the attendees to select one or more persons to become the Intergroup Rep. Your help is needed; it is a great service and will be helpful and appreciated.

If you have any questions, please call Kathy M."

Overeaters Anonymous is a Fellowship of individuals who, through shared experience, strength and hope, are recovering from compulsive overeating. We welcome everyone who wants to stop eating compulsively. There are no dues or fees for members; we are self-supporting through our own contributions, neither soliciting nor accepting outside donations. OA is not affiliated with any public or private organization, political movement, ideology or religious doctrine; we take no position on outside issues.

Our primary purpose is to abstain from compulsive eating and to carry the message of recovery through the Twelve Steps of OA to those who still suffer.
