***SAVE THE DATE, APRIL 27, 2011 – NEWTOWN PREMIERS A PERMANENT DRUG LOCK BOX***

0 Comment

 It is my pleasure to invite you to a very important event here in Newtown.
On Wednesday, April 27, 2011, 2:00 pm at Police Headquarters, please
join Chief Michael Kehoe and celebrate a permanent Drug Lock Box for your town!

As you know, prescription drug abuse and drugged driving are on the rise
in this country. Cleaning out your medicine cabinet used to mean
flushing it all down the toilet or throwing it in the garbage. The DEA recognized
this problem and assisted our country by sponsoring a local drug drop off annually
thereby collecting “tons” of pills each year. This year the National Drug
Take Back day is scheduled for Saturday, April 30, 2011.
The Newtown Prevention Council thought “why wait for an annual drop off?”
Let’s make Newtown healthier day to day by having a permanent lock box
that can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

This initiative will keep all of our residents safe especially our children, grandchildren
and our elderly. Let’s keep our medicine cabinet clean and our lives healthy!

Please join us!

When: Wednesday, April 27, 2011
Time: 2:00 pm
Host: Police Chief Michael Kehoe/Co-Chair Newtown Prevention Council
Where: Police Headquarters, 3 Main Street, Newtown
RSVP: Kim Killoy, Grant Coordinator (newtownpreventioncouncil@gmail.com)
