Highlights from the Alamance County Stepping Up Day of Action

Below are photos from the Alamance County Stepping Up Day of Action held at the Historic Depot in downtown Burlington on Wednesday, May 16th.  The National Day of Action celebrated 2 years of the Stepping Up Initiative and included a hotdog lunch prepared and served by the Sheriff’s Department, with Smitty’s Homemade ice cream for dessert. Lunch was followed by a program held next door at the Paramount Theater featuring local leaders as well as featured guest Kurtis Taylor of the Alcohol/Drug Council of NC, as well as Kody Kinsley, Interim Director of the NC Division of MH/DD/SAS.  The program highlighted information about the Stepping Up Initiative and the county efforts underway to address this critical issue within our community.
