    Autumn family party takes place in our local Saturday October 20 at 17:00. Autumn's shorter days make itself more and more acutely and what is nicer then than to join together to enjoy a good stew. The meal ends with the very popular fruit salad made from fresh fruit and we round off with a cup of coffee.
    Your loved ones are also welcome to be part of the evening's fellowship.
    Please register by Friday, October 15, either by e-mail by clicking on the link on the left or by writing on the registration list available on our message board.
    Warm welcome!
    The Board and the Social Committee

    Handenlänkarna join Rikslänkarna!

    At the end of May, the Board of Directors of the Sällskapen Länkarnas Riksförbund (Society of Linkers National Association) adopted the Association of Members of Handenlänkarna, and after the term of roules of the National Association for the newly incorporated local organization in six months, we will be a full member.
    After the decision at the convened member meeting on May 2 was decided that we in the Handenlänkarna would join the Rikslänkarna (National Links), our society signatories wrote to the board, ie shairman Gunnar and Treasurer Björn on an application for admission on May 23.
    In the district we are affiliated with, there is only one organization that has not yet decided whether to apply for membership in the Rikslänkarna.
    We maintain our Central Sweden district when we connect to the National Links without any organizational changes except a name change to fit our new organization.
    Handenlänkarna will not see their decision to join the Rikslänkarna as if the friendship in any way changes the view that we are Linkmates, whether we are affiliated with a national federation or not. We see ourselves as länkmates fighting for our own sobriety and for that those who want to but fail to keep their sobriety are the most important thing in our daily work.

    Report from Annual Meeting
    The Board was full and grateful discharge for 2017 and the Board were re-elected (Björn, Erik, Gunnar and Stickan).
    During 2016 Handenlänkarna made a great effort, both human and financial to the external operations.
    Our method not to return to drinking is unique and suits some better than the conventional methods.
    The public sector must not forget that for every sober Länk companion saving on a yearly basis the public sector an amount between 1 and 2.5 million skr.

    Report from the Board meeting on May 23
  • At the board meeting on May 23, it happened historically that an application for membership of the Sällskapen Länkarnas Riksförbund (Society Linkers National Association), or the Rikslänkarna (National Links) as we say in everyday speech, was signed and sent.
  • From Riksträffen (the country meet) in Jönköping, were reported that the negotiations largely involved the fact that about half of the county councils will apply for entry into the Rikslänkarna. As with us earlier, these fellowships were mainly concerned with the fear that they saw important contributions from the municipality and / or county administrative board would disappear at a transition. This is not the case when a transition is anchored to the donor but an effective argument for stopping a merged decision of the one who want to stop further discussion and decision.
    Well, until the autumn's reunion meeting, which the Sandvikenlänkarna is convening, the fellowships that have joined the Rikslänkarna are welcome. In addition, the Sandviken Society has applied for membership of the Rikslänkarna. This meeting will be good for our future cooperation between Rikslänkarna and Fria Länkarna.
  • Autumn bus ride, a two-day trip for us linkmates and our closest relatives during week 34, will go to Västmanland. Check out our website for ongoing information about the travel event.
  • The Visbylänkarna together with the Rikslänkarna during the Almedal Week from Monday to Thursday in the Visby harbor. They using an old caravan to spread the messages of our organization to the visitors. We in Handen thank Visby for a very good initiative and estimate SEK 1,000 to help cover the costs incurred renting the area.
