The First Step Up Social Happy Hour

This will be our first meet and greet so that members can get to know each other socially and we can brainstorm ideas for future meetups. Come prepared with some of your favorite non-profits' contact info and ideas! We can also use this as an opportunity to take up a collection. Currently we are looking for art supplies that we can use in upcoming Dabble In Art meetups. We bring art supplies to a local domestic violence shelter and have a little fun being creative for a few hours. We plan to bring this to another non-profit that serves local folks living with AIDS. Any art supplies would be great: paper, canvas boards, paint, magazines, glue, markers, wet wipes, paper towels, etc. No pressure to drink, although Bahama Breeze does have happy hour until 6pm. Let's meet on the patio, weather permitting.

    Thanks to everyone who came for our first social. It was fun time and we did lots of brainstorming of places we can volunteer and/or do fundraisers! Way to go, steppers!

    Steppers who have red shirts, please wear them! I'll have some for sale and we'll do a few drawings for a free shirt too.

    It's probably going to be too hot or rainy to be outside, so I'll get there early and see if I can get a few tables near the bar area. I understand they don't do reservations, just call ahead. So, look for some red shirts near the bar. Don't forget to bring some art supplies to donate and your ideas of places we could make a difference. This is social with purpose!

    How will we recognize one another?

      Oh, one other idea...we need to recruit more men to step up, the little boys that dont have fathers, or have abusive ones need to have positive male role models.

    • Michelle S.

      Yeah, I like the idea of a balloon or banner. And, if we all wear red shirts that would be cool! I'll bring shirts if anyone would like to buy one, $25. Soon they'll be available for purchase on the website.

    Hey Michelle,

    what a great idea to do this to get to know other steppers. Also I like the idea to take up a collection for your art supplies!

    I know you have been the only one supplying these out of your own pocket and as an ex past painter, I know art supplies were expensive back then...they are prolly higher now! I will be there, God willing!
