|"We would all agree that underage drinking can have serious consequences," says Shari Johnson, CM-HS Youth Force Project Director.|
"It not only affects the child who consume it, but the community in which we live. Children need information to make good decisions," Johnson said.
A Town Hall Meeting is coming to Calhoun to address the issue, part of a national effort to increase the understanding of underage drinking and its consequences.
The meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 28 at 6:30 p.m. at the Grantsville Volunteer Fire Department.
A free dinner will be catered by the Calhoun Middle School Athletic Boosters.
"We're looking to community leaders who have proven themselves in the past to be concerned about the well-being of our children and the community," said Jean Simers, Heads-Up Coordinator.
The meeting will provide an opportunity to learn about new research and to discuss how the community can best prevent underage alcohol abuse.
