Community Block Party, Oct. 26

The Pendleton County Champions Coalition for a Drug Free Pendleton County will be hosting their second community block party this fall. The community block party will be held from 2-5 p.m.  on Sunday, October 26 in the DeMossville Baptist Church Parking Lot in DeMossville. The block party will host food, family friendly games, a live band performing throughout the afternoon, community hayrides, face painting, crafts for adults and youth, karaoke, information booths and much more.  Additional parking for the event is available at Grassy Creek Christian Church and a shuttle will run as needed.

The Champion’s Coalition mission is to prevent alcohol, tobacco, and other drug (ATOD) use, address youth violence, and target environmental contributors to these problems. As a coalition it is understood there are areas within the community that families do not feel safe. The reason the coalition is hosting these community block parties is to give the opportunity for those families and individuals to take a stand. To let their neighbors and community know that these are their streets, this is their community and that everyone wants the drugs and violence to be gone.

The coalition hopes that everyone will take a stand with by coming and joining the celebration. There will be activities for all ages and a neighborhood bonding that is needed to make a difference.  Please join the fun and take a stand on Sunday, October 26 in DeMossville.
