Sadly, Harmon V., chairman of the board of the Dr. Bob’s Home Foundation, passed away suddenly on May 2, 2021. Aside from years as a tireless servant inside and outside of the rooms of AA, Harmon led the annual NUTS (Not Using The Steps) Big Book Experience, as well as numerous Founders’ Day events. His presence will be greatly missed at Dr. Bob’s Home.

I think the kind of service that really counts is giving of yourself, and that almost invariably requires effort and time.
