GRAPEVINE IS FREE!: Grapevine is our meeting in print. To help members during this time, Grapevine is giving everyone limited free access to many of their 2020 Grapevine and La Viña issues. (The audio to Grapevine’s stories will be available as well, so people can listen to the stories if they like.) Please share with your fellows. They have also included a link to their Youtube channel with some original audio stories as well as other important information.
