Orleans United Against Substance Abuse has meeting on Oct.8, 2008.

Jessica Wasmund wrote an informative article in the Journal Register on October 9,2008 on the breakfast meeting of Orleans United Against Substance Abuse meeting on October 8, 2008 at the Tillman Inn in Childs. Here is a snippet from the article:

Orleans United Against Substance Abuse Coalition had cause for the celebration breakfast held Wednesday morning.

The Genesee/Orleans Council on Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Inc., which operates the Orleans coalition, was meeting to give an update to participating members and agencies on the achievements the organization had earned, including substantial grants to help fund the group.

“For the next five years, $125,000 will be coming into the county,” said Maryann Bowman, GCASA director of prevention. “What does that mean? It means we’ll be able to complete more surveys in school, compile more data, have more compliance checkpoints and expanded media campaigns in addition to expanding the coalition. I know it’s going to grow, because I know it’s been growing for the past couple years with no funding at all. Having this grant means saving lives.”
