Our Mission:

The mission of Not a Glum Lot New Jersey (NAGLNJ)

is to carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous

through unity, recovery, and service-based activities throughout the year,

culminating in the annual weekend conference.

“…We have been speaking to you of serious, sometimes tragic things.We have been dealing with alcohol in its worst aspect. But we aren't a glum lot. If newcomers could see no joy or fun in our existence, they wouldn't want it. We absolutely insist on enjoying life. We try not to indulge in cynicism over the state of the nations, nor do we carry the world's troubles on our shoulders…”  Reprinted from Alcoholics Anonymous, Page 132,with permission of A.A.
