2/23/2017 6:30 PM Incredible Kids
February is Incredible Kid Month!
 
The Coalition is proud to honor Incredible Kids during the month of February. This is the perfect opportunity for parents, teachers and other adults to recognize a child, between the ages of 5 and 12, that has made a positive impact in our community or has qualities that make him or her special.  The child may have shoveled snow off your sidewalk, walked your dog, volunteered at your organization or overcome an obstacle.  A healthy society recognizes the importance of all members of their community.  Incredible Kid Recognition shows young people that the community cares and appreciates them and wants them to grow up healthy and drug free.
 
The Troy Community Coalition for the Prevention of Drug and Alcohol Abuse wants to honor these wonderful and considerate young people.  We will recognize these Incredible Kids at a special Coalition ceremony held at the Troy Community Center on Thursday evening, February 23, 2017.  Spread the word and take the time to nominate an Incredible Kid!
