The Chardon Community Action Team (CCAT) is set for another year of education through activities for the youth and families of the Chardon area. The CCAT is a group of parents, concerned residents of the Chardon area, and government officials who work to reduce alcohol, drugs, and tobacco use by the youth in the Chardon Community.
The group has begun planning for the 20th Annual Car and Motorcycle show, which will be held August 18th on the beautiful Historic Chardon Square. This past year there were over 100 cars and motorcycles year will be an even bigger fun family event.
Thanks to the successful Car & Motorcycle Show this past August the group is proud to have been able to offer three scholarships to deserving students graduating from Chardon High School. The scholarships were awarded based on the applicant’s efforts to live an alcohol, drug, and tobacco free life. All students are encouraged to apply for this year’s round of scholarships, which will be awarded in May.
The group plans a variety of activities throughout the year emphasizing the importance of living a drug, alcohol, and tobacco free life. This year’s activities include Alcohol Awareness Month in April, Splash Party in June at the Chardon Municipal Pool, educational forums, Annual Car and Motorcycle Show on August 18th, observation of Family Day in September, and continued support of anti-drug theater programs. Each event/activity involves the public, who’s participation is sought. “I always enjoy starting a New Year with new ideas from people who care about our important mission of living a drug free life,” said Vice President Lynn Kempf. “I am excited for the New Year of programs and activities.”
