Anthem Community Council Focuses on Drug Education

The Anthem Community Council recently approved hosting a drug education presentation that will commence with an introductory event to be held on Jan. 24 at 6:30 p.m. The event, which will be open and free to all, will feature speaker Stephanie Siete from Community Bridges.


According to Holly Matson of the Anthem Community Council, “Research shows preventing drug use before it begins is the most cost-effective, common-sense approach to promoting a safe and healthy community. With exposure to effective drug prevention messages, education and our presence we can help increase our youth’s chances of living up t their full potential. I am proud to live in a community that believes in a proactive approach to dealing with drugs. We are not a community of ostriches; our heads are up and we are eager to address this issue.”


In addition to hosting educational presentations, Matson is also hoping to gather support for a program called “Family Day – A Day to Eat Dinner with Your Children,” (see “Saving Starfish” in this issue).
