Saturday, April 30 The DEA has scheduled a second National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day that will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Pelham Police Department in the Community Room, and the Windham Police Department. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Each day, approximately 2,500 teens use prescription drugs to get high for the first time, according to the Partnership for a Drug- Free America. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including the home medicine cabinet. This is a great opportunity for those who missed the first event or who have subsequently accumulated unwanted, unused prescription drugs to safely dispose of them.

Mark your calendars! Looking for some great finds? Do you have items you want to get rid of? The Windham Woman’s Club will be having their Yard Sale at Windham Town Hall, 3 North Lowell Road. Drop off your donated items on Friday, April 29. Proceeds to benefit the scholarship fund.
