CAL – Item # N/A – Alateen Talk Newsletter

2 Comments

Alateen Talk NewsletterWHAT I LEARNED: 1. This is the eleventh & last item in the Alateen Newcomer Packet & is a full issue of a newsletter – not an excerpt.  The particular one in this packet is 8 pages total, has feedback on a writing workshop & an Alateen Conference, various sharings from members around the world, & drawings from a 7 yr old member (whew that’s young)!  …But the best part is a Daily Reader game board on the back page.  For example, I could land on the square that says: “Read the page of a friend’s birthday.”  I think I’ll make copies of this & share it at the next District Meeting as a way to bring fun into using our literature in a new way.

2. Much like The Forum magazine, this newsletter is the only CAL item that can continuously reflect the current times for Alateen.  Sure, there’s an Alateen section in The Forum, but it’s usually only 1 or 2 pages – or you can always view an excerpt by clicking on this link: Alateen Talk Excerpt, but neither of them have board games!

**BONUS: According to the new 2013 Conference Summary (item # P-46), WSO is still working on getting the electronic version of The Forum up & running by the end of this year.  I think it would be great if they eventually do the same for the Alateen Talk newsletter!  If I find out anything about this, I’ll post an update…

  1. Thanks, Pat, for printing the Alateen Talk. It’s been a while since I have read one of these. I’m going to add it to our meeting notebook so that if anyone does pick it up someday, they will see another piece of our CAL meant just for the young uns.
