Police Appreciation Luncheon
Vida Del Norte has decided to host another Police Appreciation Luncheon this Fall to show gratitude to our local law enforcement and invite community members and officers to come together to share a meal and some conversation. This year Vida will be hosting the police appreciation luncheon on Friday October 29. This date falls during Red Ribbon Week which is a Drug, Alcohol and Tobacco prevention awareness campaign that happens annually in the United States. Red Ribbon Week is a perfect time to be thankful for the help that our local law enforcement does everyday to try and prevent substance misuse in our community.
Monthly Vida Del Norte Coalition Meetings
The monthly Vida Del Norte Coalition Meetings are open to the public and are a great time to find out what the coalition is up to and work with the community to come up with ways to prevent youth substance misuse. These meetings are at 6pm on the last Monday of the month and will now be held in person at Vida Del Norte, 62 Highway 38. People can also attend online via zoom at: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85026030334.
