Upcoming Event Information

DEA Drug Take Back Day

Saturday, April 27th from 10 AM - 2 PM

Various Locations

DEA's National Prescription Drug Take Back Day reflects DEA's commitment to Americans' safety and health, encouraging the public to remove unneeded medications from their homes as a measure of preventing medication misuse and opioid addiction from ever starting. This is also an important step in keeping kids and pets safe from accidental ingestion.

 

Please note that many area police departments, including, but not limited to, Saco PD, Kennebunk PD, and Kennebunkport PD, have 24-hour medication disposal bins located in their lobbies 365 days per year. 

Responsible Beverage Service Training

Tuesday, May 7th & Thursday, May 9th

6:00 PM - 7:30 PM (must attend both sessions)

Old Orchard Beach High School

Cost: $9

Join us to earn a 3-year certificate in Responsible Beverage Service (RBS) training, created by the Maine CDC to give the workers who make decisions about IDs, age, sobriety, and their worksite safety the best skills and information possible to protect their customers, their staff, and their community.

 

RBS training helps you keep your work environment low-stress and thriving. It can also help individuals and their establishments avoid fines and lawsuits.
