The Rotary Club of West Bend - Noon is pleased to announce Hidden in Plain Sight and the Heroin Highway Lecture Series in partnership with Elevate, the Heroin Task Force of Washington County and Moraine Park Technical College. This program will focus on educating parents on the critical issue of prescription drug abuse, underage drinking/tobacco consumption and other forms of illegal drug use.
Located at Moraine Park Technical College in West Bend, Hidden in Plain Sight is an interactive display of a teenager’s bedroom with many items hidden or in plain view that helps to identify areas where teens may hide drugs, alcohol and other paraphernalia. It also points out household items that can be used to either cover up drug and alcohol abuse or can be used to facilitate drug and alcohol use. The purpose of the program is to educate family and caregivers about the signs that can be an indicator of drug abuse.
Guided tours of the exhibit bedroom will begin on January 21st and will run Saturday’s from 10 am – 2pm and on Thursday’s from 5 pm – 8 pm through February 23rd. It is free to attend and open to everyone 18 and older. The exhibit is located next to the MPTC Library at the West Bend Campus.
