What the big deal about underage drinking? Why it's not harmless ...What we can do about it!

Join the Rotary Club of Milton on. Wednesday, March 6, 2019 at 12:15 PM for lunch at Abby Park Restaurant, 550 Adams Street, Milton, to hear a presentation by Deborah Milbauer of the Milton Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition called, 'What the big deal about underage drinking? Why it's not harmless and what we can do about it". 

Rates of underage drinking in Milton are higher than the state average, and it takes a village to address it. The 'Parent Campaign' to reduce underage drinking, launched by the Milton Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition in December, 2018, is intended to give busy parents the information, resources and skills they need to tackle this head on. The presentation will detail why underage drinking isn't 'no big deal', and what not just parents, but the Milton community at large, can do about it. The Campaign features a new website, a parent pledge, a soon-to-be-released video, community presentations and much more.
