The AL-SASK Regional Service Committee held its first meeting on the weekend of November 22nd 1986 when representatives from Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Saskatoon and Red Deer met in Edmonton to discuss the possibility of forming a Region. Since that time the format, structure,and meeting place has been altered many times to accommodate the needs of our Areas as well as the Regional committee itself. The purpose of the AL-SASK RSC is to be supportive tothe Areas and Groups within our Regions by helping Areas and Groups deal with their basic needs and situations, and by encouraging the growth of the fellowship. Our Regional borders are such that we attempt to serve approximately 500,000 square miles of countryside including all of the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan as well as parts of British Columbia and the Northwest Territories. In the early days our Region was made up of the four major centres within our borders, Calgary, Edmonton, Regina and Saskatoon. Within a few years of inception Central Alberta and the Northern Lights areas were formed and joined the region. Central Alberta wasrepresented by both Calgary and Edmontonfor a period of time but now has returned to the Regional body as its own Area, Northern Lights had left but returned, and the Peace Area (Grande Prairie) isnow an active member of this Region.
