A Lifeline to the Rest of AA

WE are a four-member group in a tiny and somewhat isolated village and our contacts with "outside" AA are very limited. So thanks for making the Grapevine better with each issue. It is truly a lifeline to the rest of AA for members as isolated as we are.

Haven't read all of the October issue yet but the first article is outstanding. The "fellowship-formed-on-the-field-of-battle" idea makes a tremendous amount of sense. The format with the flags of the country of origin heading up the articles is both striking and pleasing.
