Summertime Outreach at the Fair -Coalition and NEO

Nevada County Fair:

Home Safe Home booth 2012

Coalition Fair Booth: Themed Home Safe Home, our booth, provided information about youth accessing alcohol, prescription drugs, and marijuana at home and we shared resources and ways that families can keep children safe by monitoring and securing sources of access. Volunteers helped to man the booth, sharing prevention resources and asking people to take our survey. Nearly 400 people stopped by the booth and it was another year of very successful outreach.

NEO youth rave 2012

NEO Teen Section at the Fair : In it’s second year and expanded to include more space and tents, NEO was able to host it’s first drug-free youth rave at the fair with music, lights, and blacklight paints. After a visit from the fire marshal, Patterson generously donated fire retardent for the tents to keep NEO up and running. Thank you to all the volunteers and generous supporters.

Many Thanks to all the volunteers that helped out at the fair this year! It sure was a hot one… Whew!
