From the August 2018 magazine.

Letter from the Editor

Once we get sober in AA, we carry the message to other suffering alcoholics. For more than 74 years, Grapevine has been a wonderful tool to introduce newcomers to our lifesaving program. It can also reach alcoholics in prisons, hospitals and remote locations. During last year’s challenge, we asked members and groups to share about how they carry the message. This month, we recognize the two winners with a special section of service stories and shares from their regions, beginning on page 12. Congratulations Northeast and Pacific Regions. Nice job!

In the story “Crazy for Service,” a Grapevine rep in Oregon shares how much service has helped her grow and meet other members. When doing service work in AA, a member in New Hampshire reminds us to keep our sense of humor in the story “Break Time.” In Washington State, a woman always has literature for just the right occasion in “Trunk Full of Love.” And in the sweet story, “Good to the Last Drop,” an old-timer in California reminds us of the love and service we give our home groups.
