The Christian County Prevention Coalition has announced that Illinois House Representative Avery Bourne (R-Raymond) will be their guest speaker at their meeting on Wednesday. The meeting will take place at 4:30PM at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital Auditorium.
The coalition encourages community leaders, youth advocates, parents, and teachers to join in the group’s mission and purpose of a community free of abuse by our youth of drugs, alcohol, or tobacco. The group pushes for education, support of programs that reduce the risk or enhance protection of the community, as well as advocating for changes in local policies that decrease the risk of local drug use.
Key members of the Coalition will also be recognized for their service, and core members will be highlighting key initiatives currently underway in Christian County. For more information on the Christian County Prevention Coalition, visit their website at cc-pc.org.
