Healthy Lamoille Valley’s Parent and Caregiver Workgroup would like to invite you to take a few simple steps towards keeping the youth in your life substance free this summer. We encourage you to keep drinks with alcohol and non-alcoholic drinks in separate coolers and monitor the alcohol at your gatherings and in your home. We also encourage you to monitor and lock up any adult use cannabis/marijuana. One of the biggest reasons youth use substances is that they are easy to access. Parents and other adults have the power to limit access.
The Parent and Caregiver Workgroup has created an attractive sticker set (21+ cooler and Drinks for All) with a tipsheet for hosting safe gatherings to make your events even safer. We will have a table with these stickers at Stowe’s 4th of July festivities or you can request your set by emailing email@example.com.
Healthy Lamoille Valley is a coalition working to reduce youth substance misuse and support healthy activities for youth. You can learn more at www.healthylamoillevalley.org. To find out how you can get involved please email Program Coordinator Jessica Bickford at firstname.lastname@example.org. Sign up for our mailing list at www.healthylamoillevalley.org/signup.
We will not be holding coalition meetings in July and August so we can put our efforts into tabling at various community events. First up: Stowe’s 4th of July Festivities! Stop by and say hello!
