News about Meetings
bulletThe Wednesday night meeting is looking for an Intergroup representative.  If interested please contact your Intergroup rep.
bulletCurrently, the Frederick Area Intergroup does not have a Treasurer; therefore, all meetings are requested to send in a check, not cash, of your meeting donations.  We suggest that one person in your group collect the cash and deposit it into their account and then write a check to Intergroup.  The check should be made payable to OA or Overeaters Anonymous and mailed to:
