     If you have eyes on editing this publication, let meknow. This rotation is over in December and Iwould like you to practice editing and pasting up on a near future edition. You’ll love it. It has been a blast.

Enjoy the September Assembly! Can’t begin to tell you the difficulties in getting this September issue to you. But ask me if you see me. Or call 505.603-9913, I like to talk.

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 what is going on in the 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.

AA Birthdays/Anniversaries

Submitting by email is best; phoned or mailed-in submissions are also welcome.
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.
