  1. Joe,
    I am a 2011 graduate of Leadership Grapevine and know the answers to many of these trivia questions as a result. I would recommend this program to any of your readers who are interested in learning more about our city, its government and the various factions that make our city what it is. This program is offered by the Grapevine Chamber of Commerce who will soon be taking applications for the 2011-2012 class. Contact the Chamber if you are interested.

  2. Carolyn,

    That is a great suggestion. I have heard nothing but good things about the Leadership course taught by the Grapevine Chamber.

    Thanks,

    Joe
