Celebrate Grapevine 70

Grapevine Turns 70 in 2014

Written, edited, illustrated, and read by AA members, the international journals of Alcoholics Anonymous are lifelines linking one alcoholic to another.

Grapevine and La Viña communicate the experience, strength and hope of its contributors and reflect current AA experience through recovery, unity and service.

Founded in 1944, Grapevine cannot receive group contributions and is supported entirely through the sale of subscriptions and products.

A great place to start is the Grapevine Anniversary Kit, which includes a wealth of information for you to create your own events. See below for more ways to participate.

  • A feature page in each issue on page 7 during 2014
  • Grapevine's June Anniversary issue
  • Look for more new and classic members' stories
  • Get updated info in the AAGrapevine & Your Group and GV News emails
  • Offer to be of service as a GVR or RLV
  • Receive and pass along the Grapevine Daily Quote email
  • GV Anniversary Kit has tools, information and a presentation for you to use. Learn more.
  • The new
    Grapevine Daily Quote book will become available April 27.
