Description: This reshowing in English will also have new, live Spanish translation. (For ASL, register at By popular demand, the 69th Annual Stepping Stones Lois' Family Groups Picnic, which was originally presented live on June 6, 2020, will be reshown in an anonymity-protected rebroadcast. A.A., Al-Anon, and Alateen speakers faces will not be shown. The event starts with an introduction by Stepping Stones President and Executive Director. Next is a history interview with a relative of Ebby T. Back in 1934, Ebby - friend from Bill W.'s youth - had a few months sober and carried a message of recovery to Bill W. that helped inspire Bill to try to get sober.  Following the interview is a Stepping Stones overview, messages from friends of Stepping Stones and the Wilsons, and the traditional open speaker meeting with A.A., Al-Anon, and Alateen speakers. The A.A. speaker knew the Wilsons and the Al-Anon speaker had a chance to meet Lois years ago. Please note that audio/visual quality of a Zoom reshowing of a recording may not be the same quality as the original presentation.

Organizer: Stepping Stones, the historic home and archives of Alcoholics Anonymous Cofounder Bill Wilson and Al-Anon Family Groups Cofounder Lois Wilson in Katonah, New York.
