Parents/guardians and community members are encouraged to attend as substance abuse is a significant concern in our society today and only through awareness and education will we be able to make positive strides forward in fighting this epidemic. The mission of CAPE is to promote the prevention and reduction of addiction and substance abuse and I have found their presentations to be outstanding. ~Steven Malkischer
