Aug 11, 2013 - By Andrea Novotny, Staff WriterThe Meth and Suicide Prevention Initiative aims to provide a drug and alcohol-free event with its Summer Bash, which will feature speakers and open mike performers Aug. 17 at the Riverton City Park band shell.
At the bash, speakers will share messages about suicide prevention and staying drug free, said Meth and Suicide Prevention Initiative coordinator Elk Sage. The event will last from noon to 9 p.m.
"In Fremont County, we have a lot of cultures," Sage said. "We want to bring them together in a positive atmosphere and spread a good message on sobriety... and that there's help available if anybody is suicidal."
All types of music are welcome.
For more information, to register for a performance time, or to host a fundraising or informational booth, call Sage at 840-3797.
Registration is free and must be completed by Aug. 16.
The event is sponsored by Northern Arapahoe Tribal Health.
