The Calhoun Tobacco Coalition held it's regular meeting on December 13. The Coalition is very active in the community and has been participating in several outreach programs.

November was a busy month for the members of the coalition, participating in the Calhoun County Committee on Aging Health Fair with a display board. On November 18th, members promoted the Great American Smoke-Out in the community and schools.

A hot issue with the Coalition is the Clean Indoor Regulation which is coming up for vote in January.
