Bend Broadband is still charging us, but will stop next month. Joan wants to order a very large order of books ($1500). Will discuss in new business. We are staying consistent supporting ourselves. Linda presented the YTD report. Total income was $2483 and total Expenses were $2252. It was pointed out that the YTD report will take a few months to balance out and make sense due to the ½ month reporting. Linda requested that we place something in the newsletter asking for groups to donate more to COIG.

Jennifer is requesting stories. There was discussion regarding adding the donations list by group to the newsletter so that groups know who has been contributing. Please send any jokes, stories, or other AA related information to her. The email is listed on the website. COIGAA.ORG
Safe Harbor hosted the potluck. The venue changed to United Methodist Church in their basement. It was well attended considering the change and that there was a campout going during that weekend. The change cost the Intergroup nothing since it was an oversight from the Board of Directors for the Family Kitchen. New Horizons will host the next Potluck in August.
September 15 will be the cutoff for any changes that need to go into the Schedules.
