I was hoping you could post the attached flier for an upcoming Youth and Senior event on Tuesday November 16th from 3:00 – 4:30 pm sponsored by Council on Aging, TRIAD, and Healthy Gloucester Collaborative. Free transporation offered by CATA. Joanne Peterson founder of Learn to Cope is going to talk about the importance of "Talking with Your Teen: It’s Never Too Soon". In addition to Joanne there will be music, activiites, and food. For more info people can go to healthygloucester.org or call Joan Whitney at 866-964-4602.
We haven’t met in person but you provided amazing coverage of the Fishing Familes and Friends Health & Safety Day I helped to coordinate last April. I am working on a state grant through Substance Abuse Prevention Services at the Gloucester Health Dept. to help reduce death associated with opiate use (herion and prescription drugs). We call it the Gloucester Overdose Prevention Project.
Thanks for all you do!!!
