Hello and Happy 2022 from Vida Del Norte! We hope that everyone is having a great start to the new year. We wanted to send out a quick community newsletter to invite everyone to our annual retreat and give a brief update of some of the activities that Vida was involved in during the fall and before the new year.
We want to invite all of you to attend our annual retreat which will be on Saturday, January 22 from 10am-2pm. The annual retreat is a time for people to get to know more about the goals of the Vida Del Norte coalition. The retreat is also a time to build capacity within the coalition, plan how we can work together to increase our impact preventing youth substance misuse in our community and get to know one another better. The retreat will be at the Vida Del Norte office in Questa which is #62 Highway 38, across from the Granite company's building. You can also attend the retreat online using Zoom. You can download the agenda by clicking here. We will be having a simple lunch and there will be coffee and snacks. We hope very much that you can attend and we also encourage you to
