Stratford Partnership for Youth and Families and Stratford Rotary Club are providing coffee cup sleeves with a message encouraging parents to talk early and often to their children about the risks of underage alcohol and marijuana use.
Research shows that teens who learn about the risks form their parents are up to 50% less like to try alcohol and marijuana.
The sleeves are being distributed at the annual BHS vs. SHS Thanksgiving Game and the Town Hall Holiday Tree Lighting.
"The Stratford Rotary Club is proud to support the Stratford Partnership for Youth and Families' Coffee Sleeve Campaign," said Lou Perno, Stratford Rotary President, "our mission is to support initiatives like this, which will positively benefit our community."
As members of the Partnership, the Stratford Rotary Club is among the town and community leaders, youth and parents working to reduce youth substance abuse and create a safe, healthy and drug-free environment where youth and families thrive.
