Plans for Committee/Speakers/Recorder

The 51st Annual

PA Al-Anon Convention

will be held June 7 – 9, 2024

at Susquehanna University

in Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania


 Create a Basket for the 2024 Convention!

A-tisket, a-tasket, the Convention needs your basket!

Please consider asking your home group and district to create and donate an attractive basket to raffle at the Convention at Susquehanna University on June 7-9, 2024. Proceeds help create seed money for the 2025 Convention, with surplus funds benefiting the AWSC (80 percent) and WSO (20  percent).

Drop off your cellophane-wrapped basket when you register on Friday, June 7, 2024.

Attach a tag identifying your group and location, perhaps including a basket inventory. Tell the hospitality committee members your home group name and location so they can write it down.

Here are some Basket Donation Ideas for Groups and Districts.

Here are just some basket ideas:

  • Gardening hand tools, gloves, and a cushioned kneeler.
  • A squirrel-proof bird feeder and a book on birding.
  • For the budding artist: a box of watercolors, paint brushes, special papers for painting with watercolors, maybe an easel.
  • Fun for the grandkids: Newberry-award winning books and/or gender-neutral games.
  • For the tea lover: a pretty tea pot surrounded by different boxed teas and small bottles of honey.
  • For the bath lover: bath salts, soaps, and a thick white Turkish towel.
  • You don’t have to, but it would be nice to include Conference Approved Literature other than the three daily readers, which most of us have. How about “The Joy of Service” pamphlet (S-57)?

The types of baskets are limited only by your budget and imagination! Baskets can be big or small. It's the love you put into them that matters.
