Ways to Participate in the Stepping Stones' Experience

Visit! Stepping Stones is furnished exactly as Lois left it - a simple, humble home filled with family heirlooms, personal memorabilia, and an extensive archive. Social and cultural historians, community members, and members of 12-step programs are our most frequent visitors. 

Host a supportive event! If you and your friends would like to organize and hold a supportive event for Stepping Stones such as a presentation by a Foundation representative about Bill and Lois; a dinner, breakfast or luncheon; or an  entertainment event (movie, comedy, or dance), please email info@steppingstones.org with your contact information and event ideas.

Preserve and maintain!  Stepping Stones relies on the participation of its community to fulfill Lois' wishes and preserve this resource forever.  Individuals, corporations and groups show their support for keeping this historic treasure alive, by becoming Friends of Stepping Stones with a financial gift or regular pledge of support. Become a Friend by contributing any amount, whether it be $20, $50, $250, $1,000, or more, to the Stepping Stones Foundation.

Volunteer! Stepping Stones relies on the generous spirit of its community to help keep the site open to visitors and maintain the property as Lois left it.  Whether as a tour guide, a garden club member, or other type of volunteer, we need your help. There are even some jobs such as writing, editing and design that can be done remotely. To volunteer, email your contact information, availability and interests to info@steppingstones.org.
