    We are using the Wild Apricot website system for nonprofits. We hope you like and we hope it simplifies our communications to members.

    This new system has a site, and email system, a forum as well as a built-in payment system. We hope it saves us time and allows us to spend time on bettering the Missouri Grape Growers, instead of struggling with multiple systems.

    Stay tuned as we work to make this website worth your time.
