Hidden in Plain Sight

Presented by Community First's Community of Concern

Join Community First on Wednesday, October 18 at the Hudson Middle School Commons. Doors open at 6 pm to view the room and the presentation begins at 7 pm. Hidden in Plain Sight is a unique traveling exhibit created by the Bath and Copley Township Police Departments in 2011.  The display exhibit appears to be the bedroom of the average teenager.  But items that are taken for granted as nothing but the usual accessories may actually be signals that the teenager could be involved in risky and even illegal activity including substance abuse, underage drinking, eating disorders, sexual activity and more.  Exploration and interaction with the exhibit is encouraged.  Adults in attendance will be able to get a up-close look at the items in the room and be shown how they can be used.  Participants will be enlightened, educated and astonished by the Bath and Copley Township Police presentation. Don't miss this must see program! For more information contact Laura Gasbarro at 330-807-1517. Please note that this is an adults only presentation.
