Marcia & Wendell  presentated at the V. A. on Tuesday, June 2, 2015, and had table set up  June 4th at Orange County Drug Free Office Conference.

We had positive responses and feedback.

Positive anticipation of impact coordinating with H&I will promote.


PR notified of help with registration for FADAA committee from Regional P.R. Committee.

Anyone hearing of  "Health Fairs", will let our subcommittee know, as this is an opportunity for us.

Discussed subcommittee event: 

1.  Pool party and  2. Dance with refreshments.  Both ideas tabled for next meeting.

V.A. facilities  is another opportunity for us to meet counselors, case managers, & any bulletin boards for us.

Funds are available for I.P.'s, & meeting lists, for new locations, as described above.

Hospital Emergency Rooms are a great opportunity to place pull tabs and being targeted.

People that are in charge of an organization, case managers, & counselors may also have a second facility, or workplace.  Therefore, two birds with one stone.  They may be able to place pull tabs in multiple locations.

F.A.D.A.A. Convention in August.  Table this discussion for June Meeting.  Regional will fund our table if Area unable to do so.
