Hot Cocoa & Warm Conversation: Ingredients for Family Connection

Coffee Sleeves Campaign
Stratford Partnership for Youth and Families and Stratford Rotary Club provided 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.
Sleeves were also distributed at the annual BHS vs. SHS Thanksgiving Game and the Town Hall Holiday Tree Lighting.
