There is a desperate need of women in AA to take meetings to Polk County Jail and Kara would really appreciate help getting the word out. The sobriety requirement is 1 year and you must be 5 years off paper. This commitment requires dedication and just a little work to get added to the schedule. Please call Kara Haberkamp for details. 515-943-5626. Thanks in advance!
