Our guest Mark Galligan is a long-recovered alcoholic and very active in A.A. He is a businessman. He lives in Canada. He is a Christian Recovery Leader and a participant in International Christian Recovery Coalition since its inception in July of 2009.

Mark attended our international conference in May of 2009 at Mariners Church Community Center in Irvine, California. He was one of the speakers and watched over our substantial exhibit table in company with a professor of medicine from South Carolina. He was attracted to our original printers manuscript of DR. BOB and the Good Oldtimers which is an A.A. General Service Conference-approved book we acquired from its owner Dennis Cassidy of Connecticut.

This manuscript is particular importance because of the written changes and the full names of the early AAs it describes and quotes. It is filled with material on early A.A. Bible study, old fashioned prayer meetings, Quiet Times, surrenders to Jesus Christ, and the original A.A. Christian fellowship founded in Akron in 1935. Mark began making plans to obtain, make copies of, and digitalize it so that it could be seen all over the world. He also endeavored to acquire this and a host of other A.A. historical materials and support our project at Dr. Bob Core Library in Dr. Bob’s boyhood village of St. Johnsbury, Vermont.

Mark will tell us a little about himself, his family, his drinking days, his activity in A.A., and his large group of A.A. Fellowship members who call themselves the “Akronites.” This group is very oriented to community outreach, passing out A.A. Conference-approved Co-Founders Pamphlet P-53, helping newcomers get well, and making it possible for them to become children of God by new birth.

Mark brings many new AAs to Akron–where A.A. was founded and had its Christian Fellowship, and we are eager to hear from this hands-on man of A.A. love and service.
