The Anti-Drug Coalition has partnered with Community Partnership Protecting Children to educate Grayson County residents as part of a grant-funding program.
From 6-8 p.m. on Thursday night adults will learn about a variety of different aspects associated with kids using illegal drugs.
Representative Dan Satterfield talked about what the speakers on that night will be discussing.
“Trevor Ray from Midway Pharmacy will be talking about illegal prescription drug use,” Satterfield explained. “Assistant Commonwealth Attorney Susan Strieble will be speaking on the prosecution of drug users. Grayson County Sheriff Rick Clemons is going to discuss drug problems in the county. Members from the Kentucky State Police will be covering drug problems in Kentucky, and driving under the influence. The methamphetamine task force from Owensboro will be on hand that night also. Lastly, the drug coalition will do a presentation on how kids get away with hiding illegal drugs from their parents.”
The deadline for registering to attend is by October 19. Satterfield can be contacted by phone at 270-242-9616 or call Bev Casey at 270-259-4041.
Free childcare will be provided for parents, and refreshments will also be served during the seminar.
Both organizations main goal with the informative session is to give people a better understanding of what dangers are out there.
“We want people to be aware of the current trends,” Satterfield mentioned, “and how to help rid the county of illegal drugs. There is help in the community, and there are people who are concerned about ridding the county of illegal drugs. The more we educate the safer we can become.”
