We had a visit from our Drug Free Community Federal Representative/Grants Manager at the end of August. He was quite impressed by our Coalition and in fact called us "ROBUST!!!" I'll take it! We started changing our Coalition, only meeting 4 times a year, creating work groups and developing By-Laws! We are developing a sustainability plan, have 5 new members of our Steering Committee and have a Youth Prevention Team that is 16 strong!1 Thanks to the recruitment efforts of Kara Younger out Youth Prevention Coordinator! We enjoyed an awesome night at the Rag Shag Parade, giving out 800 Safe School, Safe Streets glow in the dark wrist bands! The School Committee approved our request to take 3 youth to the National CADCA leadership conference in Washington DC in February! So excited! Well, that's about it...Prevention Rocks, We care, and we believe we are the CHANGE!!!!
