Happy December!  I hope this finds you well.  I just wanted to share a few quick things.  First, a reminder that our RCFY monthly meeting is next Thursday, December 14th, 9:00 am - 10:30 am, at Lamprey Health Care on RT 27.   The Seacoast Public Health Network will be joining us for a free Narcan training and distribution.  Please help us to spread the word about this as they are able to bring 55 kits.  Our full agenda is available on our website.

RCFY has gotten some pretty impressive media coverage in the past month.  We made the weekend news several times and recently the Union Leader featured a piece I submitted on the importance of not forgetting about Alcohol and Marijuana while we are dealing with the Opioid epidemic.  The piece is below.  

The WMUR NH Business Review invited me on to speak this past weekend and once again it was to drive home the message of talking about prevention.  It is exciting that people are starting to realize this is an important topic and one that needs to be discussed and worked on.  This is below as well.  In it, RCFY is referred to as a "model program that every town in NH should be looking at."

We are very fortunate to have you working with us and supporting RCFY.  Please keep the effort moving forward and share this email with someone so they too can learn about the importance of prevention.

Below are some great efforts that our youth are working on.  
If you would like to participate you may bring baby items or canned goods to our meeting next week on the 14th. 

Thank you for your time and support, I hope you have a great night,
Celeste Clark
RCFY Executive Director

Another View --- Celeste Clark: Don't Ignore NH's Other Addiction Problems - By CELESTE CLARK

A parent knows that if they turn their back on one child to take care of another one, the one they are not watching is free to get into mischief. This can be said about the opioid epidemic, but in this case, we have two very mischievous children who are wreaking havoc while not being watched. Their names are alcohol and marijuana.  read more...
