From the December 1972 magazine.

Carrying the Message

Teamwork behind bars

May I, through the medium of the Grapevine, convey the grateful thanks of this group to those wonderful anonymous people who each month without fail have sent us seven copies of the famous Grapevine? Words alone cannot really express our thanks. We learn a lot from the Grapevine, so to those people I say, "You are doing great Twelfth Step work for this 'inside' group."

During 1971, we saw the last of the old group dispersing to "time expired," transfers, etc. Those members have the benefits of long-term associations as a group. They had previous AA experience in prison, and as civilians they also have a keen sense of purpose!
