DERBY- Juniors and seniors of Lower Naugatuck Valley high schools and their parents are invited to the 6th Annual Prom Safety Awareness Night from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 5 at Griffin Hospital, 130 Division Street in Derby.
“Underage drinking and distracted driving increases during prom season and the most powerful tool against these risk factors is parents,” said Cathleen Kellett of Griffin Hospital’s Community Outreach & Valley Parish Nurse Program.
This year’s free program will be presented by the Greater Valley Substance Abuse Action Council. The program will engage teens and their parents in an open conversation to encourage safe behaviors and decrease questionable decisions in regards to driving, texting, drugs and alcohol. There will also be a question and answer session.
Griffin Hospital will provide refreshments. Participating students will receive free gift cards for Dunkin Donuts and be entered into a grand prize drawing for prom ticket bids.
This event is free, but seating is limited. Reservation are due by March 28 to Dee at 203-924-7614 or email@example.com. Please provide your name, phone number, town and number of guests.
