Bryan Webb looked across the room at the Trietsch Memorial United Methodist Church’s Family Life Center on Saturday and smiled.
He was pleased to see the passion of the more than 130 people who packed the room to hear experts from across North Texas give their views on how to address the drug problem in Flower Mound, Lewisville and the surrounding communities.
Webb, the Flower Mound councilman who helped set up the event, said the problem is real.
Ten PTSA Scholarships for $500 each will be available for Marcus 2014 seniors. The recipients of a PTSA scholarship must be a 2014 graduate and a member of the Marcus PTSA, prior to January 31, 2014. Selection is based upon a variety of factors that emphasize merit, not simply academic or financial need. Merit is demonstrated through evidence of motivation, school and community involvement, and a desire to succeed. The deadline for the applications will be Friday, April 25th by 4pm.
The Town of Flower Mound will host “A Community Conversation: Drugs” on August 10 from 8:45 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Trietsch Memorial United Methodist Church Life Center, 6101 Morriss Road. The program will feature panel discussions with representatives from local law enforcement; schools; and resource organizations providing residents the opportunity to learn about the drug challenges we face today.
Attendees will also be able to drop off unwanted medications for safe disposal. Refreshments and lunch will also be provided. For more information about “A Community Conversation: Drugs”, please visit www.flower-mound.com/communityconversation or call Deputy Mayor Pro Tem Bryan Webb at 972.816.5661.
