Hello, Happy Friday!

We have two fun events/opportunities happening this weekend that we don't want you to miss out on.  Unique gift-giving opportunities, as well as a chance to win a holiday gift for your family while benefiting local families in need at Christmas. Win-Win!

Custom RCFY Hooded Sweatshirts are available to order NOW through Monday, December 9!  Great gift idea!  
 

 
  • Each pullover or Zip Front sweatshirt is black and features the RCFY logo in white on the front and back as shown.  
  • All items are custom printed when you order, please allow 5-10 business days for printing.  
  • We will contact you when it's time to pick up your items.  
  • The price is $25 each, except for the 2X - 4X sizes which cost $5 more.  
  • Please specify in the special notes section which size you need if it's 2X, 3X or 4X.  Thank you!  
  • Order safely & securely via PayPal on our website. 

Secondly - Visit the Raymond 5th Annual Festival of Trees happening at New Life Church, this afternoon through Sunday at 1 pm.  Raymond Coalition for Youth sponsored a "Family Fun" themed tree, jam-packed with some fun family games, gift certificates and more.  Everything you need to spend quality time with your family, laughing and creating memories that will last a lifetime.  Family Fun is a protective factor for everyone and is a big part of Prevention.  Making positive healthy choices and having fun without the use of substances is a way to help your family stay healthy and happy.


 
Money raised from raffle tickets for the event go directly back into the community, to help bring Christmas to families and seniors in need here in our community.  Purchasing raffle tickets not only gives you chances to win a tree but to contribute to others who will greatly appreciate the help especially at this time of year which can be difficult for many people on many levels. 

We thank you for considering these opportunities to participate in Giving this Christmas season while benefiting our community!

PS - Next Thursday is our final meeting of 2019, and the decade!  December 12th, 9:00 am - 10:30 am at the Raymond Baptist Church.  Our guest will be Danielle from Aware Recovery to talk about the impact of our words when we are with young children in regard to addiction, treatment, and recovery. 14,000 children are impacted by the opioid crisis. They are in our schools, doctors’ offices, and community. They have loved ones who could be struggling with addiction or embracing recovery. The words we use when we talk with these children are important. We hope you will join us for this important discussion.
 

Have a great holiday weekend and please remember, if you or a loved one are struggling with substance misuse and looking for treatment or recovery support please call 211, and please feel free to look at our Resources pages on our website. 
 
Sincerely,

Celeste Clark, Executive Director

Happy Thanksgiving & Thank You

When reflecting on all we have to be grateful for this week, I want you to know you are on the list. You are one of the important rocks that make up our soup!

The Raymond Coalition For Youth is only possible because of the many individuals, organizations, and businesses that each contribute something different, but make up the amazing organization that is RCFY.   

RCFY is like the Rock Soup story we heard in childhood.  One person might have nothing but a rock, but when we put each of our rocks into a pot and invite others to share their special ingredients in the same pot, we have an amazing soup and we are able to nourish our hungry community.   

The resources, events, and programs RCFY has brought to our community and beyond this past year have made a difference.  We have inspired change by providing information, saved lives by increasing access to the supports and resources, given hope to individuals and families struggling, and empowered youth to know that they have a voice and adults want to listen. 

It has been a great year, and we have much to be grateful for -- yes there are concerns and work to still be done, this work cannot stop --but today, this week, this season, let us focus on the good things and be grateful for the “Soup” that we have created to feed and nourish our community.

Join us in being Thankful For RCFY and YOU, and the delicious ingredient you bring to our table.

On behalf of the Raymond Coalition For Youth Board of Directors and staff, we wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving. 

With gratitude,

Celeste Clark, Executive Director

November 4, 2019:

Hello,

 

I hope you had a great weekend, I wanted to share the link below, and some excerpts from this article regarding risk management and marijuana, with our health care partners.


Marijuana is a tricky and difficult issue for many reasons and its impact also has complications that our health care systems are now starting to experience: 


·        In NH therapeutic cannabis is allowed through a dispensary and marijuana has been decriminalized.  Both of these have contributed to an increase in use.

·        CBD is now available just about anywhere and is not even regulated, due to the recent farm bill.  This has led to an increase in use by all ages, but we are finding especially the senior population.

·        Recreational marijuana use still remains illegal federally and in NH, although legislation is in place trying to change this in NH.  In 2019 prevention advocates were able to stop this from happening and it is important to note that it was also defeated in NY and NJ, so this is not a given or something that “is inevitable” or “just a matter of time”. 

 

Risk Management

State cannabis laws present medical malpractice conundrum

 

·        “At the end of the day, practitioners are also thinking about ‘What happens if I get sued? What’s the liability?’ Well, you want your medical record to tell the story of your shift, and if you don’t have it in the medical record, you can’t point to it,” he said.

 

·        Something to consider and be aware of:  “Patients are likely to ask questions about issues such as delivery methods, frequency of use, the dosing ratio of the elements of marijuana — THC and CDB — and drug interactions," she said.  “How can a budtender, without any professional or medical training or certification, speak to the risk of drug interactions or how the body will metabolize everything?”

 

As we move into 2020 we want to make sure everyone is aware of the risks and complications that are associated with legalization so we can work together, share our voices, and do what is best for the state of NH and the health, safety, and wellbeing of our citizens.

 

Please feel free to share this information with your partners.  If you have any questions or comments or would like more information please let me know.

I hope you have a great week,

 

Celeste Clark, Executive Director
