Hi all,

Thank you for reading the El Farolito web page.

We are always looking for groups or districts to help prepare a future issue for the mail. See the available dates below and reach out to me to confirm your group’s or district’s interest.

Area 46 is looking for the next El Farolito editor to begin with the next rotation in January 2021. There’s a bit of a learning curve (trust me!). But let me know of your interest and, as they say, “we’ll talk.” It is a LOT of fun, some hard work and a great way to get to know the AA community in the Land of Enchantment.

Enjoy the upcoming March Assembly in Taos! I look forward to seeing you there.

Tim M., editor, El Farolito, 2019-2020

To submit an article or an item for publication in El Farolito, the deadline for each month’s issue is on the 15th of the month preceding the issue at 11:59 p.m. Mountain time 🙂

MAILING PARTIES

Each month we are holding mailing parties to tape, label and stamp the issue. These are FUN and I will be happy to travel throughout New Mexico to provide this service opportunity for your group as our mutual schedules allow. If your group or district can be a little flexible, I usually can too! With about 10 people it will take a little over an hour, and it can be right before or after a meeting to encourage involvement. Please have your district or group step up and contact us: elfarolito@nm-aa.org

District Reports

Typically reports are submitted by email; some ELF reps type them into the email or attach as a document. Please do not send a PDF file. Many ELF reps report on what is going on in their district and what they are doing to carry the message. Many include events, birthday celebrations, elections, business meetings, etc.  Some are short, some longer and anywhere in between. A suggested maximum length is 300 words but this is flexible.

AA Birthdays/Anniversaries

Please submit by email. For each set of birthdays, please provide the name of the group, city and the month celebrated.
For each birthday, give the person’s name and length of sobriety.
El Farolito prefers to print birthdays after they have happened.

All AA events are welcome, meaning events that will have a meeting, speaker or workshop and are sponsored by an AA meeting, group, District or Area. An event held at a club is appropriate for publication in El Farolito as long as it is hosted/sponsored by a group or groups, and is not an actual club event.

Event fliers are welcome and will be printed when possible, or El Farolito will list the event under “Upcoming Events” with the necessary details.

If you send in a map, the less detailed the better and no-color is best. Sometimes they just do not print very clearly and can soak up a lot of color if not black and white or grayscale.
