Have you ever wanted to partner with all of the movers and shakers in the Valley to figure out who’s doing what to make a positive difference?
Then don’t miss this year’s Key Leaders Summit, a morning event where leaders (anyone who comes out to help at this time) gather to discuss what the community can do collectively to promote health and well-being.
Leaders from every sector of the community including schools, government, cities, law enforcement, businesses, religious communities, parents, students, health and service providers, and service clubs are welcome.
Examples of past initiatives generated by this annual event are the youth councils, the prescription drop boxes and prescription take-back programs and prevention activities for teens. The goal is to bring all sectors of the community together to further common goals and objectives that shift outcomes toward better health.
The event is sponsored by the Snoqualmie Valley Community Network through a grant from the Drug Free Communities program of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
The program runs fast but deep, with time to network and meet others to help gain momentum for ideas.
The SVCN Healthy Community Coalition subcommittee that meets monthly throughout the school year offers a forum to continue the work created by this community event.
The agenda for this event will also address local economic stability for well-being leading up to a "Right Livelihood Job Fair," which will be co-hosted by the Network and partners and is planned for the fall of 2011.
Mark your calendar and be a part of the "Lead for Change" ... share your voice and become a part of the cooperative effort to promote health, safety and community well-being. www.snoqualmievalley communitynetwork.org.
