Two of our partners in Recovery work are holding special events in the coming weeks.

Welcome Home is holding an Open House for all in early November. Here is their invitation.

VisionQuest is running a 12 Step Comedy fundraiser in December. If you recognize how funny work and life in Recovery can be, you'll want to join in the fun and support this group.

Check out their poster for this event here.

The video below is a marvelous short piece on some terrific Preventative work that is happening quietly right in our midst.

The item was sent to us by Jay Niver of the Alcohol-Drug Education Service in Surrey. Jay is, as well, one of the creators of the video.

Bravo! and more, please...

Do We?
