Our annual Coaltion Meeting on January 11th was a huge success! Sgt. Kyle Green with MSHP shared valuable insights on the current substance-use climate in Mid-Missouri. Thank you to all the stakeholders who attended as well as a heartfelt thanks to The Studio at Dunklin for donating the perfect space, and a shoutout to our amazing sponsors for providing delicious food: Schulte’s Foods, Gerbes West, WalMart East & West, Sugar Britches, and Amazing Graze.
Together, we are making strides toward a healthier, drug-free community for our youth!
Our amazing Show-Me Players have been performing in January (when our Missouri weather cooperates) and they are sharing their important message with area students!
