To the Editor:

The New Milford Substance Abuse Prevention Council would like to thank the New Milford community for its generous support in bringing Chris Herren to our town.

Chris Herren made a big impact May 19, with two presentations to New Milford High School students during the school day and a community presentation in the evening.

Thank you to the following donors for their generosity:

New Milford Police Union, New Milford Hospital, MCCA, the NMHS Student Council, High Watch Recovery Center, Bank Street Theater, Candlewood Valley Pediatrics, New Milford Lions Club, Union Savings Bank of New Milford, Kimberly-Clark Corporation, Phys-Ed Health and Performance, Goat Boy Soaps, Staples and the Community Credit Union of New Milford.

Thank you to Nick Adamou and Olivia Streaman from New Milford High School’s Cut, Paste and Copy for designing our brochure.

Thank you to the staff at the New Milford Youth Agency and New Milford High School for their help behind the scenes organizing this event.

We also wish to thank the NMHS student body for being a great audience and for bringing so many of their parents back for the evening event. For more information about events and resources in our community, please visit our website at nmsubstanceabusecouncil.org.
