New Milford’s Youth Substance Abuse Prevention Council had its first meeting of the 2014-15 school year on Wednesday September 3rd. This group meets monthly to distribute grant funding throughout New Milford in an effort to prevent Substance Abuse within our Youth population. The council is made up of members from the NM Youth Agency, NM High School, High Watch Recovery Center, NM Hospital, NM Police Department, and area Substance Abuse counselors. Community members are encouraged to either participate or provide input into relevant programs or projects that they would like to see offered in our town.

The last Summer Thursdays included a compass navigation course and an obstacle course. Several of the students walked to Young’s Field to play. One student took a moment to read to Kirsten! Fun day for the children and volunteers. Thank you to all who made this a fun summer.
