AA Women: Can you share your story with inmates in the South Burlington Jail?

**We are collecting old issues of the Grapevine Magazine to share with inmates.

Live meetings are not being held in the South Burlington Correctional Facility due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Before we stopped holding meetings there, the female inmates had been asking if we could bring in speaker meetings. Now that we aren’t able to bring ANY kind of meeting in, we’d like to request that women in our area consider writing their story, in a “speaker meeting” format (what it was like, what happened, what it is like now), and email it to corrections@BurlingtonAA.org so that we can share the AA message in writing with inmates.

Our inside volunteer coordinator will post your letter in each unit for all to read. Your anonymity and details (i.e. email address) will not be shared. Just your story and your first name. Many thanks!
We have been dealing with alcohol in its worst aspect. But we aren't a glum lot. If newcomers could see no joy or fun in our existence, they wouldn't want it. We absolutely insist on enjoying life.
Chapter 9,
"The Family Afterward"
ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, page 132
Our Twelfth Step - carrying the message - is the basic service that the A.A. Fellowship gives; this is our principal aim and the main reason for our existence.  Therefore, A.A. is more than a set of principles; it is a society for alcoholics in action.  We must carry the message, else we ourselves can wither and those who haven't been given the truth may die.
"A.A.'s Legacy of Service"
THE A.A. SERVICE MANUAL, page 51
Practically every AA member declares that no satisfaction has been deeper and no joy greater than a Twelfth Step job well done.
