Presentation by local experts on drinking and drug use
On Wednesday, April 13, Youth Connect will host a presentation by local experts that continues the group’s on-going conversation about the dangers, ramifications, and consequences of underage drinking. Entitled My Child Would NEVER… A Presentation for Parents on the Drinking and Drug Party Scene, the event will feature Dr. Thomas Pangburn from Heritage Valley Emergency Services, Judge Robert Ford, Sewickley Chief of Police Jim Ersher, and John English, Edgeworth Chief of Police. These professionals deal with the fallout from teen drinking and drug use on a local level, and can help parents learn how to make a difference in the lives of their children. The event runs from 11 am till 1 pm at the Sewickley Valley Y Community Center, located near the Paddle Tennis courts off Blackburn Road. There is no cost, and the presentation is open to the public. Attendees are encouraged to bring a brown bag lunch; beverages will be provided. Click on the image below for a printable flyer.
