Burns: Youth Fairs present anti-drug message throughout June, July
EBENSBURG, May 23 – As a longstanding partner with Cambria County Crime Stoppers in its “Push out the Pusher” campaign, state Rep. Frank Burns, D-Cambria, said numerous Youth Fairs featuring an anti-drug use message are scheduled throughout the 72nd Legislative District this summer.
The Cambria County Courts and judges, and the county’s Drug Task Force, are important partners in these Youth Fairs, and Burns’ office is also on hand to talk about state programs to deter kids and young adults from drug use.
"This is an important message to reinforce, so I encourage parents to consider having their children attend these events," Burns said. "This year, we've expanded the number of events to 22, so there are even more opportunities to find a location near you.
All Youth Fairs, unless noted below, will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
