Chardon Community Action Team Supports Family Day

The Chardon Community Action Team (CCAT) is supportive of Family Day, which is always the fourth Monday of September. This year Family Day is being observed September 24th.

Please join CCAT along with families nationwide by eating together this year. Family Day was launched in 2001 and is a national movement to celebrate parental engagement as an effective tool to keep America’s kids substance free. Research shows that children with hands-on parents are far less likely to smoke, drink, or use other drugs. Even the simple act of eating dinner together as a family makes a difference.

Nine out of 10 Americans who meet the medical criteria for addiction started smoking, drinking, or using drugs before the age of 18,” said Lynn Kempf, vice president of CCAT. “By engaging in their children’s life at an early age makes a big difference.”

To find out more about CCAT very important mission to reduce the use of alcohol, tobacco, and drugs among our youth through education and activities, please visit our website at Chardon Community Action Team. We encourage anyone with an interest in our mission to attend one of our monthly meetings held on the third Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. at the Chardon Municipal Center, which is located at 111 Water Street, Chardon, Ohio 44024.
