Substance abuse group plans annual meeting

OLD TOWN — The River Coalition, which recently received its third $12,000 grant from the state’s Office of Substance Abuse, will hold its annual meeting Tuesday at the Old Town-Orono YMCA.

The coalition was established in 1994 to develop programs for families and youth in a region encompassing Alton, Bradley, Green- bush, Greenfield, Indian Island, Milford and Old Town.

The annual meeting, which begins at 7 p.m., will include the election of officers for 1996-97, and a progress report on the coalition’s telephone survey.

The state grant renewal will enable the coalition to continue activities aimed at preventing substance abuse, delinquency, teen pregnancy, school drop outs and violence in its coverage area.

For information on the meeting, call the coalition at 827-8744.
