J��� 6, 2011 ���.D�����M��������.��� Quartzsite Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition holds 1st Annual Invitational Dinner Submitted by Samantha Hess Quartzsite Substance Abuse Pre- vention Coalition (QSAPC) held our fi rst annual invitational meet- ing on May 19th 2011. This meeting was held to invite people within the Quartzsite community to attend, lis- ten in on a presentation, & join us for dinner. The informational session of the meeting began at 4pm. The information provided for the guests was shown in a slideshow that was also printed for the guests to read over themselves. Within the slideshow information was provided about what the coalition is all about, what we are trying to accomplish, and what we have accomplished thus far. We stressed the fact that our biggest issue as of right now is man power, & how we can use all the hands, ideas, and people that are willing to volun- teer & help. As of right now the co- alition only has about eight regular attendees to our monthly meeting, we hoped that throughout this din- ner we could provide the informa- END OF tion that would persuade individuals to join our coalition & help us to pro- vide the community with the contin- ued support we have been trying to give. We had a good turn out of 24 people that signed in on the sign in sheet, and we had many people that seemed very interested in getting involved and helping out. We even had people already suggesting new ideas & things that they thought we could do within the community to better it. After the presentation and Q & A portion, we then served dinner, and the guests continued to talk with each other, and also current coalition members, about ideas, the next meeting, and more information on the coalition. We encourage anyone that is inter- ested in the coalition to attend our monthly meetings. They are held the third Thursday of every month at 4pm at the local fi re department. All in all the meeting was a com- plete success and we hope to have gained some new members by the next meeting on Thursday, July 21st. SAVE NOW on Cactus & Succulents! Hundreds to choose from!
