Greater Pasadena Council Meeting To Feature Keynote On Drug/Alcohol Abuse


Katie Wargo, coalition coordinator for Northern Lights Against Substance Abuse, will be the featured speaker at the Greater Pasadena Council’s November meeting on Tuesday, November 15, at 7:00pm in the Mountain Road Library community room (4730 Mountain Road, Pasadena).

The meeting will also include a discussion among attendees about the issues and programs the Greater Pasadena Council will embark upon in the coming months.

“The misuse of drugs and alcohol is a serious problem in all communities, including Pasadena,” said Nancy Schrum, program chair for the meeting and GPC. “Northern Lights is doing fantastic work addressing the problems impacting individuals and families. It’s important that parents understand the signs and symptoms of a child struggling and who they can call for help.”

The Greater Pasadena Council can be a resource by providing the facts with a hope that families can be proactive to ensure a better quality of life for their children and family.

“There are also many other important issues, and we will start the process at the November meeting of identifying what issues and programs the council will undertake. This is why it is important for folks to attend and share their ideas,” said John Spencer of the GPC.

The Greater Pasadena Council is a non-partisan organization of community members representing the more than 100 neighborhoods of Pasadena.
