The Community Recovery Center is hosting the 2nd Annual Back to School Bash with a Luau celebrating Recovery Month. The event is Thursday August 11, 6:00 p.m. at the Post Public Pool. Admission will be by ribbon only. Those interested in attending need to come by The Community Recovery Center, 405 S Avenue C on the back side of the old mill building, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. to pick up admission ribbons. The Community Recovery Center will give ribbons until all are gone, but supplies are limited.
The Community Recovery Center is also seeking partners to sponsor this event. Individuals or agencies interested in sponsoring the event can contact Chris or Merika at (806) 495-3173. We look forward to partnering with those in the community to host a fun chemical-free event for our kids and families.
On June 17th the CRC, along with the Post Rotary Club and Judge Lee Norman, hosted a community "Start of Summer Splash" at Post Public Swimming Pool. Approximately 100 local children, family members and adults participated in the event that included hot dogs, good "oldies" music and fun in the sun. This event was held to promote clean, drug free fun that helps promote healthy family interactions and also builds goodwill within the community.
Last summer the Center held their first End of Summer Splash sponsored by Post Rotary Club and Rosa Latimer. The first event had a modest turnout of approximately 40 children and their parents. Chris Atkinson, Director for The Community Recovery Center, states that "When we can get family members to spend time together in a healthy manner it promotes the well-being of families and gives them ideas about ways to have fun in a chemical free environment."
