Marysville community forums kick off with 'Recognition and Reporting of Illegal Drug Use' on Oct. 11

MARYSVILLE — The Marysville Police and Parks and Recreation departments are partnering with the Marysville Community Coalition to conduct a new series of public forums designed to increase public awareness and share resources with residents regarding illegal, environmental and social changes occurring within the community.

The scheduled forums are "Recognition and Reporting of Illegal Drug Use" on Tuesday, Oct. 11, and "Have a Safe and Crime-Free Holiday Season" on Tuesday, Nov. 15.

Both forums will start at 7 p.m. in the Marysville-Pilchuck High School auditorium, located at 5611 108th St. NE.

Presenters will include Marysville Police Chief Rick Smith and other police and crime prevention representatives and community members.

Parents, educators, business leaders and citizens of all ages are invited to participate in this informative community forum series.

The first forum will focus on the warning signs of drug abuse, how to report it and the role in combating drug activity that local law enforcement is taking, as well as how you can make a difference for your family.
