Operation Street Smart is a government initiative to educate the public about drug abuse signs and prevention strategies. A meeting will be held at Fort Frye High School March 26 from 6-9 p.m. in conjunction with the Washington County Sheriff’s Department to discuss this difficult subject. Most addictions start in high school and your local schools are ALL dealing with drug-related issues. The presentation will contain very, very powerful information that every single one of us needs to hear. The signs of drug abuse in families, school organizations, the workplace, communities, and towns are everywhere. Operation Street Smart teaches you the signs and how to recognize them. Make plans to attend this important, free, community program.



Drop by the Beverly Public Library to see a 3D printer. Visit with Makerspace Coordinator Jenny Bruce and ask questions about the printer and the new Building Bridges to Careers Epicenter Makerspace. The program is brought to the library through a partnership between the Washington County Public Library and Building Bridges to Careers Epicenter Makerspace, which card holders of the Washington County Library card can use for free. This program will be held Tuesday from 6-7 p.m.

March Munchies are planned for Thursday at 3:30. March plays ‘host’ to many National Food Days and many will be explored.
