The 69th Annual Stepping Stones Lois Family Groups Picnic Goes Online for the First Time on Saturday, June 6, 2020, 1:00 p.m. Eastern!

This family recovery celebration takes place every June. It was launched by Lois Wilson and includes speakers from A.A., Al-Anon, and Alateen.

This year's event will be virtual.

The day will begin with a history conversation with a relative of Ebby T. discussing Ebby, the man who carried a recovery message to Bill W.

Picnic Prizes:

Items handmade by volunteers are a longtime tradition for the Picnic raffle in support of Stepping Stones. All who donate or make a purchase when registering will be entered for a chance to win one of six pillows. Each was handmade and has the word "Serenity" in a different language (English, Spanish, Italian, German, and French) to celebrate Stepping Stones' first global event and to recognize that the A.A. International Convention would have been in July.
