Local youth address prevention group

   On June 5 at 3 p.m. at Tolt Middle School in Carnation, youth from Riverview School District and Snoqualmie Valley School District will report on activities they had conducted throughout the school year to prevent substance abuse among their peers. These middle and high school students have provided leadership to Upper and Lower Valley youth councils, sponsoring drug and alcohol-free events and other activities to increase awareness of substance abuse issues. The Snoqualmie Valley Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition has supported many of these activities with funds from a three-year state grant to support local prevention activities. The public is invited to attend this and future coalition meetings. For more information, call Ellen Kropp, Coordinator, Snoqualmie Valley Community Network, at 425-333-6614.
