Town Hall Meeting Preventing Underage Drinking

by Jessica Cervantez

Many kids start drinking in junior high. In fact, one out of every two eighth graders has tried alcohol.

That is why a town hall meeting is being held to curb underage drinking. A panel of experts will be on hand to give information about under age drinking. The meeting will be held at the Fredonia Hotel and Convention Center Tuesday from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

The meeting is part of a national effort to increase the understanding and awareness of underage drinking and its consequences.
