Greetings from the frozen tundra here in NY we like to call the Hudson Valley! The chilly temps and winter storms have slowed us down a bit, but haven't stopped us. We are looking forward to our upcoming event with LICYPAA on Feb 28th in Hopewell Junction! Drop on over to our Events Page, download and distribute the flyer and get ready to sing your heart out! If you made it to one of our Karaoke events last year as ESCYPAA, you know it will be a screamer! Speaking of ESCYPAA, Have you preregistered for ESCYPAAII yet? If not click here to pre-register. ESCYPAAII events, plus some other surrounding events have also been added to the Outreach page. CH-CH-cHeCk iT oUt!!!!
Thanks to all who made it to the Holiday Extravaganza! It was a great event and showed amazing Unity in YPAA and our great state of NY! If you didnt get a chance to Pre-register for ESCYPAA II why not hop on over to their site and show some support? HVYPAA has no other events scheduled for this month, but some of us are planning to go to NECYPAA to ring in the new year, so you are welcome to join us! Information for the convention held Jan 2nd-4th in Cromwell, CT can be found on their website here. Dont forget to pre-reg and book your room! If your staying local for the holiday season and looking for something to do, you can support your local alcathon, or donate some time to a local soup kitchen. See you all next year! Stay tuned for more great events!
We are not a glum lot! I have updated Events Page and included the Holiday Extravaganza we are co-hosting with other NY YPAA groups. Hop on over and check it out! In addition a new Outreach Page has been added to keep you in the loop on whats coming up. Its convention season, and theres no better way to kick the winter blues than grabbing a few people and heading out of town for the day, or a weekend, to get outside of yourself. For committee members the Members Page has been updated with the new committees contact information. Please get in touch with me for the new password.
Hey guys and gals! We are back! We spent the last year hosting the first ever ESCYPAA, and after an amazing year of friendship, fellowship, recovery and traveling the state, we are back to do what we do best...throw some kick ass events! Our first one coming up is our annual Gratitude Banquet to be held on November 26th in Pleasant Valley. We will also be co-hosting a holiday event in Albany with several YPAA committees. Please stay tuned and visit our events page for more info. Recent elections yielded some new faces as well as some long standing members. While most positions were filled, there are still a few vacant. If you would like to get involved come see us at our regularly scheduled meeting the first tuesday of every month, at the Dutch Reformed Church in Hyde Park at 7:30pm! The committee thanks you all for your ongoing support and we hope to see you soon!

That's right ladies and gents. Pending our disbanding as the ESCYPAA I Host Committee, HVYPAA will be back in full force. We picked up some additions to our happy band of drunks over the past year, and we are as strong as ever.
An announcement of our elections will be made as soon as we can get a few things in order. That being said, ESCYPAA II will be holding their host committee elections on October 4, 2015 in Rochester, NY. Please use the form below to request more information on this. We are happy to be back, and look forward to another year of sobriety and fun with you all!

A special thanks goes out to all who attended our BBQ at James Baird Park. The grill was hot and the kickball competition was even hotter (dramatic much?). It was great to get out and spend the afternoon with everyone! As always, thanks for supporting HVYPAA and our effort to carry AA's message and fellowship.

We had a small crew out in NH for outreach, but it was a great time. Portsmouth is a beautiful town. Saturday night's main meeting was as energetic as ever, caped of by a gret speaker. We were happy to hear that we were a part of the NHSCYPAA with the best turn out in 8 years! It was announced that next year's conference will be held in Keen
