'Chemical People'Town meetings set Wednesday to view drug abuse program
Concerned citizens will meet Wednesday in four New Braunfels locations to watch PBS’s “The CHEMICAL PEOPLE” and to discuss the problem of teenage drug and alcohol abuse.
The meetings will begin at 6:30 p.m. at New Braunfels Middle School, Canyon High School, Smithson Valley High School and the Teen Connection.
Participants will view the first program which will offer information about the problem. Following the program, they will discuss their concerns and
possible solutions with a panel of local experts.
A second town meeting will be held Nov. 9th at the same sites. This meeting will focus on how the communities fight back and will include information about efforts nationwide. The aim of the second program is to form new and strengthen existing community task forces which will design and implement a continuing action plan.
“The response to ‘The CHEMICAL PEOPLE’ town meeting project has been overwhelmingly positive,” Judy Kovacs-Long, local project chair
person, said. “We haven’t had anyone turn us down and, in fact, we’ve had people volunteering to do much more than was requested. If we can keep this momentum going, we should be seeing some really positive community action toward providing drug-free, alcohol-free social activities for our youth.”
Nancy Reagan will host the two-part public television special, and will be joined by Michael Landon, Bill Bixby, Rita Moreno, Willie Stargell and Bruce Weitz.
The week of Nov. 2-9 has been declared Drug Awareness and Education Week in Comal County.Braunfels band due here to honor German anniversary
