To The Daily Sun,
This coming Saturday, Stand Up Newfound, a small group of dedicated people trying to make a difference to the growing problem of substance abuse and addiction in New Hampshire, is hosting a chili fest at the Community Center in Bristol. The event starts at 11 a.m. There is a contest to see who makes the best chili.
In addition, a video is being provided to show the issues addicts face when challenged by their issues. Ned Gordon will also be speaking on this issue. So please join us as well as learn how substance abuse impacts on the lives of the afflicted addicts, as well as their families, friends, and their community. There are more details about this event in the web-site, Stand Up Newfound (S.U.N.).
Thank you for making a change in plans to make this event work, if you are able to. We all need to learn about these issues, and how we can help those who seek to change their lives in the course of their recovery. Each experience we learn, helps us provide strength as the afflicted begin their lives again. It will also help New Hampshire to develop the way to help remove this substance abuse from our communities and state.
A thought to ponder, "Yesterday was history. Tomorrow is a mystery. But waking up each day is a gift, and why we call it the present."
