Anonymity Preserved – Grapevine Article November 1968 by Jim M.

Some time ago, the Canyon Club in Laguna Beach, Calif., which housed most of the meetings in that city, was destroyed by fire. The groups were temporarily without a meeting place.

One AA family stepped into the breach by starting a meeting in its home, a three-level structure on the side of a hill, with a long and steep outside staircase extending from the street to the main floor.

On the occasion of my first visit there, I was uncertain as to which house on the road was the right one–until I noticed a neat sign fastened to the post at the foot of the stairway. It read, simply: “THESE ARE THE STEPS WE TOOK.”
