TRI-TOWN – The Tri-Town Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition will hold its next meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 18, at 9 a.m. at Tri-Town Youth Services, 56 High St., Deep River.
The Tri-Town Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition is a grassroots organization whose membership is open to all who live or work in the tri-town area who are concerned about substance abuse and committed to its prevention. Many “sectors” of the community are represented on this council: schools, youth-serving organizations, law enforcement, government, civic groups, parents, students, the faith community and health care, to name a few.
In Year 6 of the Drug Free Communities Support Program Grant, the Coalition will address Action Plan items for this year and will develop their Action Plan for next year. Future meeting dates for this year are March 8, 2017 and May 17, 2017. For further information, please call Tri-Town at 860-526-3600.
