Your opinion requested…

For a very long time now, the Tuesday night meeting has been held at University United Methodist Church on Dalrymple, near the LSU campus.  Unfortunately, that location is not handicap accessible, and the church has no other options for us. So, the Tuesday night people are looking into moving to a new location and we would like your input. Where in the Baton Rouge area would you like the Tuesday 7pm meeting to move? Here are some options:

  • Stay on or near LSU campus
  • One of our locations already used by OA (St. Patrick’s Catholic, Jeff. United Methodist, Our Savior Lutheran, Broadmore United Methodist)
  • Denham Springs area
  • Prairieville area
  • North of I-12 area
  • Southwest of I-10 (between Siegen Ln and Essen Ln/Staring Ln)
  • Gonzales area
  • Other?
  • And of course, staying at University Methodist is still an option

Please send your vote, or any comments to

Also, if you have suggestions or ties to a possible alternative location, please share those as well.

Thank you!

PS. Please let fellows in other meetings know about this possible move, and ask them to send us feedback too.

New Blog Posts

Hello fellow oa’ers! So the way I’ve been doing the blog posts is that I’ve been adding them all on one page. I’ve separated them into years but I’ve realized that because I do that, you haven’t been getting notifications when I update. I update about twice a month when I get emails from Atiyah, our retreat speaker, from her blog. I say a little something the include her blog. So from now on if I add something I’ll try to mention something so that everyone gets an update.

July BRIG meeting canceled


Fellow OAs,

Per our Bylaws, to do business at BRIG each month, a quorum is needed of a minimum 3 Group Reps , but also a minimum of 3 Officers/Executive Board.

Because I will be out of town, I canvassed the officers/executive board today, and there would only be 2 of them present this Saturday.

So, BRIG for July 27th is cancelled.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Jan B

BRIG Chair

P.S. We will meet next month on our regular meeting day (the 4th Saturday) which is August 24th.

New Meeting!!!

Starting this Sunday, June 30, 2019, Baton Rouge will add another meeting to our weekly schedule!

It will be held Sundays at 4:30 pm, at Jefferson United Methodist Church, 10328 Jefferson Hwy, in the “Parlor.”

There are so many places without any meetings – We are very lucky to have so many meeting options. Let’s all support this new group!
