Review of Dayton High School Town Hall:

Karen Strayer reviewed agenda and attendees from April 29, 2013, Town Hall at Dayton High School. was well represented and collaborated with other organizations (Transitions, PAR, PIER, Dr. Jeremy Engle from Northern Kentucky Heroin Impact and Response Workgroup) and community leaders.  Information was gathered to give direction to our group, developing one of our first goals to obtain funding to assist the distribution of Naloxone (Narcan) to those of financial need.  During Q&A, Tina Roland asked where the monies seized from dealers went and how communities could obtain to help with treatment of addicts.  Unfortunately, those monies are put back into the Drug Task Force due to cuts from our government to their department.


Several  ideas were discussed.  The group hopes to provide at least one fundraiser per month.

May  – Jessica Tomlin will chair a group to participate in the Florence Memorial Day parade.  A need to purchase a banner and candy was discussed and will be researched.  Request for walkers will be posted @  The group will also request pamphlets from treatment centers and other organizations to distribute during the walk.

June  – Jessica Tomlin will chair a group for bowling at SuperBowl in Erlanger for 2 hours of bowling on a Sunday for a minimal charge per person.  The group will also research “silent auction” gift baskets.

Other fundraisers include:

Kroger stores for possible distribution of pamphlets, family support, and donations

Car washes at various locations throughout Northern Kentucky

Participation in the US 127 Longest Yard Sale

Booth at the Boone County Fair

Cincinnati Reds Concession work

Turfway Park

Golf Outing

5K walk

T-shirts, bracelets, car magnets, etc.  Tina and Ron will look into a design using the butterfly tattoo.


Plan for May 7, 2013, @ 7 p.m. Boone County Library, Burlington
