• An awareness session for parents and caregivers on the influences of drugs and crime on your children will take place Oct. 14 at 6:30 p.m. at the S.W. Moores Memorial Arena in Harbour Grace.
The program is called “ Kids and Drugs.” There is a great deal of information with this program, and it is an opportunity for you to: gather new information; learn new communication skills; collect the real facts about drug use in Newfoundland and Labrador; find out what the RCMP is doing to decrease the amount of drugs in our communities and how they are informing and preparing the youth. And most of all, there will be a question and answer session where you can share your thoughts and answer those nagging questions that we all have. In order to attend this program please register by Oct. 6, either by phone (596-5014 or 786-2118) or e-mail Vicki.Chalker@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.
